In 2001, "The Crest" recorded their first full release, "Letters from Fire", in Sound Suite Studio together with Terje Refsnes (producer of Tristania, Carpathian Forest, The Sins of Thy Beloved). 2003 the band decided to take a sabbatical to regain time and energy for their next album. Nell and Kristian dedicated some time to a side project named "Rustflower Incorporated", experimenting with electronic music. Also in 2003, Nell succeeded to the crown of Theatre of Tragedy's vocalist Liv Kristine. "The Crest" reunited in 2004 and went on to record their second album, "Vain City Chronicles", at the Top Room Studio in Norway. The album features, according to the band, "a heavier, more guitar-based side of the band, while still focusing on the characteristic melancholic melodies and of course Nell's soothing voice." « hide
