The Crown are now streaming a new music video for their single, “Motordeath” off the upcoming album, Royal Destroyer. The record drops March 12th via Metal Blade Records and bassist Magnus Olsfelt commented on the sound of the LP:
“It is our album number ten, so now we are in the big boys club. I think it in some ways is our crowning achievement, and it encompasses our sound across all albums on one defining record. It’s got it all – the early 90s death metal stuff, the haunting melodies, the thrash, the punk, the grind, the heavy metal and the more epic and doomy stuff.”
He also mentioned setting the bar high for this record:
“It surely set the bar up high for a follow up. But it’s more inspiring than daunting. We have a real good vibe in the band, so we know we are capable of creating great stuff if we all just put our hearts to it and work hard.” Confident, they pushed ahead, with the idea of making a sequel to Cobra Speed Venom – a sequel meaning “more of everything”.
The Crown worked with producer Fredrik Nordström at Gothenburg’s Studio Fredman and pushed themselves to their limit:
“We push ourselves to the limit, really trying to make everything as good as it can get, trying to make every song as impactful as possible. We have some of the most intense stuff ever, like one song is about one minute long, and we also have a ballad!”
The video was directed and edited by Christoffer Tönnäng.
