Sweden’s death metal maniacs THE CROWN are back! Supported by massive media acclaim the band’s much anticipated new album “Doomsday King” is now available all across Europe (it will be released on October 12th in North America). THE CROWN’s Marko Tervonen is more than happy about this return:
“Hell yes!!! Today is the release date of our comeback album "Doomsday King". Should I say some grand words to get you all fired up? Well, I guess you all know by now that we have always kept the "hype" on the "we'll let the new music do the talking" level. Once again we feel comfortable in that mindset.
This album will reveal where our hearts are in 2010, and that is to deliver the best possible Death Metal that is within us. Death Metal is strong in us 2010! That's for sure!!!! I hope you'll find the time to give "Doomsday King" a couple of spins. Trust me, it's addictive!“
The Limited Edition Digipak also includes a 4-track bonus CD containing the following tracks: “Die Before Dying (Valcyrie-cover)”, “In Bitterness And Sorrow” and “Kill 2010” (both re-recorded tracks from ‘97’s “Eternal Death” album and the new track “Falling 'neath The Heaven's Sea”.
