Swedish Death Metal legends The Crown have returned to Metal Blade Records for a multiple album deal! Comments The Crown on the agreement: "We are very honored to be back working with the label that supported us through many albums. The biggest 'steps' during our career have been thanks to Metal Blade. We have always had a strong mutual will to make the best possible albums. Now let's fire up this Death Metal engine again!"
The Crown have just finished recording their new, currently untitled long-player at Studio Fredman, and the record promises to be one of the biggest surprises of the upcoming year. A return to Death Metal speed and darkness in full glory!
