Latest Crown the Empire News
Below is our complete Crown the Empire news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
If some of this stuff is too “scene” for you, or if you live nowhere near Florida, then share this information on social media for your friends. The further we spread it, the more ticket giveaways we can launch elsewhere, perhaps for YOUR favorite bands. You elitist prick.
Otherwise, for those able and willing to make it, fire an email to email@example.com with one (or both) of the headlining bands in the subject heading, and your full name matching your ID in the message body.
Now, on to this week’s topics. Co-hosts Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) and Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) discuss some disappointing news: the impending hiatus of long-running Massachusetts metal crew Shadows Fall. After seven albums and over a full decade of worldwide touring, various factors have compelled the guys to hang up the spurs indefinitely.
Next, a happier subject, if murder, cruelty, and icepick lobotomies are your idea of a good time. If not, then you can always ignore the outrageous lyrics and enjoy the musical brutality, because death metal classics Cannibal Corpse are returning with a new album, “A Skeletal Domain,” the band’s thirteenth. Mike received an early promo and is eager to tell you all about it.
Finally - and you probably knew this was coming, so shut your trap and listen if you don’t like it; you might learn something - we discuss the latest Slipknot news (actual news, not gossip). The Iowan progenitors of the “American New Wave” of heavy metal have at long last revealed all pertinent details of their upcoming album “5: The Gray Chapter,” as well as unleashed a new single, “The Devil In I.” Stay tuned for our variety of personal reactions to these developments.
We may be the Metalunderground.com Official Podcast - the operative word being “metal” - but that doesn't mean we’re above shamelessly promoting some “FedoraCore” when it suits our interests.
That’s right, boys and girls: this week we’re launching another ticket giveaway for Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, FL. In addition to The Black Dahlia Murder, Suicide Silence and friends on Monday, October 13th, we invite you to check out Attila, Crown The Empire, and Like Moths To Flames on Friday, November 14th.
If interested, submit an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with one (or both) of the headlining bands in the subject heading, and your full name matching your ID in the email body. Listen in with bated breath as co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) fills in the rest of the details.
Next, co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) offers a gushing sneak-peek reaction to one of the year’s most anticipated metal albums: “The Singularity (Phase I - Neohumanity)” by Swedish death-prog powerhouse Scar Symmetry. He’s convinced it will monopolize many a year-end favorites list, and urges fans (Kevin included) who may have lost interest after the loss of former superhuman vocalist Christian Alvestam to reconsider. The latter incarnation of Scar Symmetry has truly come into its own. The first of a planned concept trilogy, “Neohumanity” drops in North America on Tuesday, October 14th.
Finally, in another round of his “Miami Metalhead Problems” saga, Kevin relates an epic personal concert misadventure involving the bands Erra and Reflections. We’ve all had them, we’ve all struggled and bled to make it to see our favorite bands, and every now and then, something unique and memorable occurs along the way that we wouldn’t have traded for all the well-timed, well-organized shows in the world.
