Groove/Death metal gods "Crownaside" presents "Mud To Ashes"


Crownaside2 Hailing from Murcia, Spain, CROWNASIDE sprang to life in 2013. Combining strengths of groove metal, death metal, and even progressive metal, Crownaside’s crafts have always crossed the bar of one single style. They released the self-titled debut EP in 2015, composed and recorded by the original members. Inconstant lineup has encumbered the progression of the band’s full length, but currently the unit is stronger than ever as a four-piece.

Crownaside has performed regionally alongside a raft of great local and international acts such as Lude, Vendetta F.M., Meadows End, Pray for Locust, Mente Devil, Gravecrusher, etc.).

Impending debut album, From Mud To Ashes,is a concept album that recounts the history of Maya peoples and the way they were tortured by the Spanish visitors. The first three tracks narrate the creation of Maya (according to the description of the cultural narrative “Popol Vuh”) and the final four tracks recall the arrival of the Spanish tormentors and how brutally they slaughtered the indigenous people and inhumanly imposed their own religion. The album features guest vocals from Drew (The Ritual Aura, Ur Draugr, Obed Marsh) and Johan (Meadows End).

“From Mud To Ashes” is due for release on April 24th, 2019 digitally and on CD format.
