Biography

Trollhättan, Sweden (1990 – 2004, 2009 – present)

The Crown is a death/ band formed in Trollhättan, Sweden in 1990. Their original moniker (until 1998) was Crown Of Thorns for the band’s first two albums, which had to be changed due to another band already using that name.

Their music and lyrics are inspired by death, anti-religion themes (mostly targeting Christianity) and rebellion. They are known to fuse death metal with thrash influences.

The Crown disbanded in 2004. Lindstrand went on to form One Man Army and the Undead Quartet. Tervonen and Saarenpää formed Angel Blake, named after a song by Danzig. Despite having broken up they made one last release as a tribute to their fans. A triple DVD set containing live shows, and bootlegs.

The Crown reformed in December 2009, without vocalist Johan Lindstrand. Jonas Stålhammar of God Macabre is the new vocalist.

As of September 9th 2011, Johan Lindstrand has resumed vocal duties in The Crown.

    New album should be rad with the return of Johann. Doomsday King was their most mundane and boring effort, hardly any shredding leads, and lackluster vocals. Johann is the true voice of The Crown (hence how I love Crowned Unholy with the vocals re-recorded even though Thomas did a great job on Crowned in Terror).

    First two albums were great, nothing else by them really ever clicked for me though

    I'm here because of Tomas Lindberg. I don't care the complete discography, only Crowned In Terror.

    I second Skathi. A few years ago I was desperately looking for some, without any meaningful results. I guess there are shirts circulating, but they're old and used, no new stuff has been pressed for ages?
