About this album

The Black Crown is the third full-length album by extreme metal band Suicide Silence, which was released July 12, 2011 through Century Media Records. With anticipation for their third full-length after the release of No Time to Bleed, Suicide Silence prepared recording for The Black Crown on a course of several months starting from the beginning of 2010 with writing ideas and plans before their arrival to the studio for recording in 2011. The album was produced by Steve Evetts and is also the last release by the band required to be issued through Century Media per the three-album deal contract the band accepted to in 2007. The Black Crown sold over 14,400 copies during the first week of its release in the US alone, leading to its debut at position number 28 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Garnering positive reviews, The Black Crown was praised by Rock Sound earning a 7 out of 10 rating with a review headline reading “There’s no more of that deathcore monotony from Suicide Silence…” and went on further to state “blastbeats and breakneck discordant technicality aren’t lacking on the five-piece’s third LP, but nor are they over-prescribed. In fact, to the group’s merit, there’s very little outright and over-used death metal fury, instead it’s partially replaced by modern metal ambiguities and churning, lengthy breaks.”

Metal Underground stated “What really makes ‘The Black Crown’ a worthy listen and elevates it above the dime-a-dozen dreck of today’s deathcore” coupled with the statement “All the familiar elements that make this band are present in spades.”

    Love the Korn influences! Sadly allot of the songs are repetitive and boring, which is disappointing since songwriting/dynamics/arrangements used to be the thing they where really good at.

    nowhere near as good as their first two albums. Not even in the same league. [2]

    I wouldn't call it pop at all. It's just meandering and dull. None of the raucous energy they had before.

    LOL at people thinking this album is like a pop version of No Time To Bleed. This band stayed to their roots with mitch, their is hardly a difference. Ohh and that Nu-metal shit that you guys keep bringing up doesn't exist in their music so fuck off.

    Too much experimentation with nu-metal elements in my opinion. I like the predecessors way better. However, RIP Mitch.

    Really really bad. Reminded me of a slightly heavier Korn.

    I love when trendy deathcore kids get upset that they have to change trends to like this.
