Guest review by
The Crown, also known as The Crown Of Thorns, is a Swedish death/thrash outfit. They're mainly known for their warp speed thrash metal with the indistinguishable death growling of Johan Lindstrand. They also make sure to implement death influences like blastbeats, "evil" riffs and macabre lyrics, fulfilling their Death metal part of the band. They also occasionally use melody to give the listener some breaks from the killing. It's worth a mention that their two first albums reminded me much more of melodic death metal and that they were a pure death metal act in their demo days. I guess they've picked up experiences along the way and ultimately evolved into what they are today, never forgetting their roots or love for extreme metal. Let's conclude the introduction and move on to the album.
