Biography

(1) Crown of Thorns was a Thrash/Death Metal band from Trollhättan, Sweden. They released two demos (Forever Heaven Gone [1993], Forget the Light [1994]) and two albums (The Burning [1995], Eternal Death [1997]) under this name. They later were forced to change their name to The Crown.


(2) Crown of Thorns were a blast of melodic rock fresh air when they crashed onto the scene in the mid 90’s. The dynamic pairing of vocalist Jean Beauvoir and former Shalamar guitarist Micki Free.

AOR melodic rock band Crown of Thorns featuring Jean Beauvoir. Toured with Bon Jovi and Van Halen.

(3)Crown Of Thorns was one of the forerunners of the “disco/synth” influenced techno sound, albeit with a “punky” edge, that would become all the rage a decade later. They made their first album appearance on the Illegal Records collection The Defiant Pose in 1983 with “Gone Are The Days.” Their debut EP followed in the US later that year.

In 1984, five more songs appeared in the UK only, in various 12” and 7” combinations: “Kingdom Come”, “Guns In The Name Of God”, “World Radio”, “Diamond Jim” and “No Man’s Land”. The band’s output seems, abruptly, to have ended there. An anticipated debut album never materialized and the band soon faded from memory, reduced to nothing more than an entry on William Orbit’s resumé…

    The "disco/synth" (3) post-punk band is great, reminds me of Danse Society

    personally crown of thorns/the crown are one of the best melodic death metal bands ever. 90% of nowadays MDM bands i simply cannot stand,especially that shit mix between power metal/death metal that are so popular now.

    This reminds me of Incubus.... very much so. Both bands forced to change their names because some shitty mainstream band with a big-ass label decided they wanted the name.

    "Crown of Thorns was a Thrash/Death Metal band from Trollhättan, Sweden.

They later were forced to change their name to The Crown." Can we please merge these albums into the correct artist The Crown? Couldn't care less for the gay christian "rock" band losers who forced the real metal band to change their name. Like borelee said, it's totally ridiculous to have a christian band share page with an antichristian band...
