.... Candlelight rds sign French massive beast : CROWN !!!

Candlelight sign C R O W N ! what an amazing news :) In less than two years, with a brillant debut EP in support, this blistering french duo from Colmar has succeeded a real tour de force : after having played numerous dates in Germany and Switzerland last year (with their fellows and now label-colleagues of Zatokrev for the most part), being included on next Roadburn's line-up, they're now signed on Candlelight rds,  a highly competitive label !!! 

For those who don't know them yet, read this small presentation of their identity and sound : 

"Hailing from France, C R O W N, are 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, C R O W N 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 C R O W N."

(+ evenutally the interview I did with them about a year ago : here)
Their 1st full-length album is already recorded and the date release will be soon announced  along with Tour dates !!! Entitled "Psychurgy", it will feature Freddy from Zatokrev as guest-vocalist on two songs...
Watch out for more infos soon, meanwhile listen "The One" (EP) and their split EP with S:T VALLEY (side project of Stéphane -guit/voc)...
