Swedish death metal legends and old schoolers THE CROWN are back yet with another upcoming album ‘Cobra Speed Venom‘, due out on March 16th via Metal Blade Records. Produced together with Fredrik Nordstrom at Studio Fredman, the record promises to be one of the biggest surprises of the year. This is their return to new music after 2015’s ‘Death Is Not Dead‘. Drummer Henrik Axelsson (Implode) joined the band in the beginning of 2015, replacing Janne Saarenpää, and this will be his very first record. A return to death metal speed and darkness in full glory!
With their new album release looming around near, the band has released their second single off the album, which also happens to be the album title track. Take a look at the video below.
The band comments, “A 5 minute Death Metal Grindcore Opera! Take a deep breath before the plunge – This will drag you down into the deep Waters!”
Comments THE CROWN on their new album ‘Cobra Speed Venom‘: “We are really looking forward to finally be able to show our fans how damn good this band can be when the circumstances are right. With that I mean to be able to do an album the way we want to do it: creating as a band, rehearsing as a band, recording as a band. You will hear a band performing here, with fierce energy and hunger!”
The sound is massive, brutal and a real punch in the face. Extreme speed and aggression mixed with classic heavy metal and rock n’ roll, which really shows that THE CROWN has no boundaries. The apocalyptic theme of the lyrics and music also fits perfectly with the outstanding artwork of Christian Sloan Hall.
After 27 years, the band is still motivated to create a classic piece of art – and together with Metal Blade Records once again, the vision is real.
