France’s CROWN will release its new album, “Psychurgy”, on April 22 viaCandlelight Records.
Check out the CD cover artwork below.
CROWN is two men and a machine who tune their neutron guitars to the Richter scale, and deliver the sound of a molten universe collapsing. Touching on early ISIS, GODFLESH, FLOOR and even KILLING JOKE,CROWN explore the depths of slow tempos on their début album, “The One”, and their split EP with ST VALLEY through sheer exuberant heaviness.
The duo’s depth-charging guitars and buried melodic tendencies snake around hissing electronics, a tribal / military percussive thwack, and the splashing cymbals of a minimal-yet-completely-effective drum-machine. Their sound is further emboldened by a massive bestial roar, heavy and oppressive, leading to an abyss of nothingness…. Welcome to the dark, spiralling, and obscure experiments of CROWN.
