Swedish death metal legends The Crown will release their new album, Cobra Speed Venom, on March 16th via Metal Blade Records. Check out a short message from vocalist Johan Lindstrand:
Produced together with Fredrik Nordstrom at Studio Fredman, the Cobra Speed Venom album promises to be one of the biggest surprises of the year. A return to death metal speed and darkness in full glory. Listen to the album track "We Avenge!" below.
Comments the band on their new album: "We are really looking forward to finally be able to show our fans how damn good this band can be when the circumstances are right. With that I mean to be able to do an album the way we want to do it: creating as a band, rehearsing as a band, recording as a band. You will hear a band performing here, with fierce energy and hunger!"

With their motivation at an all-time high, The Crown spent most of 2017 intensely rehearsing 13 new songs. They eventually entered the classic Studio Fredman with Fredrik Nordstrom to record what would become their new album, Cobra Speed Venom. The sound is massive, brutal and a real punch in the face. Extreme speed and aggression mixed with classic heavy metal and rock n' roll, which really shows that The Crown has no boundaries. The apocalyptic theme of the lyrics and music also fits perfectly with the outstanding artwork of Christian Sloan Hall.
After 27 years, the band is still motivated to create a classic piece of art - and together with Metal Blade Records once again, the vision is real.
