Death Is Not Dead marks the first full-length to feature original front-man Johan Lindstrand since 2003’s Possessed 13. Formed as a primitive garage act in 1990, THE CROWN has come a long way since their humble beginnings 25 years ago, having toured the world with the likes of CANNIBAL CORPSE, NILE, ENSLAVED, and many others over the last two decades. The band parted ways with drummer Janne Saarenpää and a statement is issued here about his departure. No replacement has been named yet.
THE CROWN line-up:
Johan Lindstrand – vocals
Marko Tervonen – guitars
Magnus Olsfeld – bass
Robin Sörqvist – guitars
