Boris Karloff once said; “Nature is just as content to destroy as it is to create” and Crowned By Fire are “Prone To Destroy”everything in sight, all in the name of creation!

Crowned By Fire ignited in early 2006 in Northern Los Angeles by founding members vocalist , John Fitterer (owner and operator of Southern California’s Just Passing Thru Body Piercing) and guitarist, Justin Manning, former guitar tech and personal assistant to the burliest guitar god ever to strap on a 6 string battle axe, Zakk Wylde. Musically, the band is tight and punchy like Slayer, brutally loose like Black Flag, with enough early Sabbath doom riffs to wipe out your enemy planet. Lyrically, think Motorhead’s Orgasmatron and Black Sabbath’s Symptom of the Universe while throwin’ back a cosmic cocktail with Aleister Crowley during a Charles Bukowski bar fight… In early 2011 bass player, Chris Breedlove and drummer, William Liermann came aboard to fill out the lineup.

In 2007, Crowned By Fire released their self produced Ep ‘As The World Burns.’ The Ep not only defined their sound, it gained the band international acclaim and set up their full length debut, Prone To Destroy.

    Heard Prone To Destroy after accidentally finding them, wow, what a pleasant surprise! I agree with Rocco44--Heavy, groovy, and I hear some Thrash in there as well!

    I saw these guys with Saint Vitus, and they were pretty sweet. Heavy, groovy, doomy, metal. The vocals are top notch.
