Swedish metal quartet Crucified Barbara has become the latest band to announce it is bringing down the curtain. The quartet formed in 1998, and over the course of 18 years has released four full-length albums including 2014’s In the Red. The band, which features guitarist/vocalist Mia Coldheart, bassist Ida Evileye, guitarist Klara Force, and drummer Nicki Wicked has been one of Stockholm’s best imports of punk infused, old school metal. The band seemed to evolve creatively with each new record. Their split was announced today via the band’s Facebook page:
Today we are sad to say that a long journey has come to an end. Crucified Barbara were our dream and you all, made it come true!
The times we’ve had together as a band and shared on (and off) stage with you guys, leaves memories that no time can kill.
Our lives have parted and we need to move on. The last years have taken its toll on all of us and the joy of playing together got lost somewhere along the way.
But we are musicians at heart and the last chord is not taken for any of us, so we will probably see each other again, under different circumstances and in other variations.
Thanks to everyone we worked with during the years who believed in us when no one else did.
But without you, our fans, we wouldn’t have seen the beauty and the strength of what rock music can do.
Thank you again for making our dream come true!
All the best and biggest respect!
Mia, Klara, Nicki, Ida
