The Crown

This Swedish band was formed in 1990 and recorded two albums in the mid nineties under the name Crown Of Thorns, before legal pressure from a Christian band of the same name forced the name change to just The Crown. The style here is a frantic, ferocious blend of thrash, death, punk, and a bit of Motorhead, with the latter two influences in particular giving the later albums a death rock feel not unlike a faster version of latter-period Entombed. By March 2004 the band had had enough of poor touring conditions and lack of income from playing, and they broke up. Several members formed new bands, including Angel Blake, Engel, and One Man Army And The Undead Quartet, all of which are still active. In 2008 four of the five members hooked up with Deathstars vocalist Andreas Bergh to form a band called Dobermann, but upon Bergh's replacement in December 2009, that band decided to become The Crown, and so this band is active once again.
