Candlelight Records will be releasing Crown's "Psychurgy" on June 18th, 2013 as part of the label's Cult Series. Candlelight also comments:
"Touching on early Isis, Godflesh, Floor and even Killing Joke, Crown explores the depths of slow tempos through sheer exuberant heaviness.
"The duo’s depth-charging guitars and buried melodic tendencies on latest offering, Psychurgy, snake around hissing electronics, a tribal/military percussive thwack, and the splashing cymbals of a minimal-yet-completely-effective drum-machine.
"Their sound is further emboldened by a massive bestial roar, heavy and oppressive, leading to an abyss of nothingness…. Crown's Psychurgy is dark, spiralng, and obscure and a music trip you won't soon forget."
