The Crimson Armada is an American metalcore/deathcore band from Columbus, Ohio. The band initially formed in Westerville, Ohio in 2007, but after several live shows and demos the band went on hiatus. After pressure from the local music scene, the group reformed a year later. According to Allmusic, the band has found itself "on a meteoric rise through the extreme metal world." Although the band's lyrics contain Christian themes, the band does not consider itself a Christian band.
