The Crown is back with an album that will be liked by all the fans that loved 'Possessed 13'. In 2004, after 6 albums they threw the towel in the ring. About a year later they re-united, but due to circumstances it took some years to release this new album. One of them was that they needed to look for a new singer. With Jonas Stahlhammer they found a perfect follow up for Johan Lindstrand.
Jonas played in a band called Utumno and his sound and style doesn't differ a lot from Johan's. 'Possessed 13' was already a death/thrash granite and on 'Doomsday King' these Swedes continue with that style. You could probably say that there are even more thrash influences involved here. Slayer is a band they definitely are inspired by. More brutal thrash, less blast-beats, but still fucking heavy and overwhelming. Jonas vocals are rough aggressive thrash ones with an occasional grunt; they fit perfectly to the music. You could probably say that there is a bit more melody in the songs too.
"Angel of Death 1839", "Blood O.D." and "Soul Slasher" are songs that will give every death/thrash fan a hard one. The Crown is back and with this album they put themselves on the throne again and they deserve it to be the Doomsday Kings. A very welcome reunion.
