It’s time for another round-up of what’s been going on in the world of death metal so far in 2015 – Rob McAuslan returns to guide you through the grunting, squealing, roaring, shouting beast that is heavy metal’s br00tal side.
The Crown is a death/thrash metal band formed in Trollhättan, Sweden in 1990. Their original moniker (until 1998) was Crown of Thorns for the band's first two albums, which had to be changed due to another band already using that name.
Their music and lyrics are inspired by death, anti-religion themes (mostly targeting Christianity) and rebellion. They are known to fuse death metal with thrash influences.
The Crown disbanded in 2004. Lindstrand went on to form One Man Army and the Undead Quartet. Read more on Last.fm

Reunions are always shit, right? They basically happen when other projects run out of steam or don’t sell very well and the members run out of cash. Except, for all those that leaves you feeling very cynical (Rage Against The Machine,) or that are great for five minutes before disappearing back into the sunset (At The Gates), there are occasionally those that do it properly. Having gone their separate ways in 2004, Swedish thrashers The Crown got back together last December, and now they appear to be in that small group bucking the trend – this record fucking slays.
