Sweden’s legendary death metal masters THE CROWN have published the following statement regarding the recording process for the follow-up to the band’s critically acclaimed album, Doomsday King (2010):
“A lot of things are happening with THE CROWN at this very moment. We are in the middle of recording a true masterpiece. Marko is more or less done with his rhythm guitar work and Magnus has started with the bass stuff. He recorded a bass track for one song today before we all got together and filmed a small ‘jingle’ for our Japanese friends. Only three months until we hit Japan for the very first time. We are extremely excited about this. Hopefully we’ll see YOU there.
Last but not least, we are very proud to announce our new lineup. Yes, we have a new member in the band. His name is Robin Sörqvist and he fits the band more than perfectly. You have probably heard him in the band IMPIOUS before. He’s got the lead guitar skills and the will to kick ass, just as the rest of us.
Please embrace Robin with a big and loud HELL YEAHHHHH!!!!”
THE CROWN 2013 line-up:
Johan Lindstrand – Vocals
