Winter Crescent were formed during the winter of 2000 by Alexis Ktistakis, in Heraklion Crete, Greece.
After 8 years of line-up changes, the band started to find a stable formation in early 2008. Winter Crescent has performed over the years live in various cities all over Greece and has recorded a debut EP entitled Battle Of Egos, with 7 songs (35 minutes playtime), which was self-released in the early May of 2009.
This EP was awarded Pick of the Month by Greek Metal Hammer in the September 2009 issue and 85% in February’s German Rock Hard. Furthermore, it has received very good reviews at various E-zines and Magazines around the world.
In late September 2009, Winter Crescent went on tour with 4 other bands and they played in 7 major cities. After that, Winter Crescent had their first official video clip for the song "Battle Of Egos part 1" which was produced by "Atheaton Media Center" and reached more than 100.000 views on youTube.
In the summer of 2011 Winter Crescent entered Rock Band 3 for Xbox by having all of the songs from Battle Of Egos in the game.
In 2012 they played in Chania Rock Festival alongside with Grave Digger and other metal acts.
In 2013 singer Nick Spiridakis left the band.
After a long search for a new singer, Winter Crescent finally found one in 2016. His name is Fábio Nunes and he is from Brazil. Furthermore, the band is already in the studio composing vocal lines for their upcoming album that is already recorded.
