Fall is officially here, and that means it's time for metal to start bringing the gloom! Your first thought might be atmospheric black metal, but that's not the direction we're going today, as Northern Crown shows that music can be gloomy and still have great licks and discernible vocals.

The newly formed doom outfit pays homage to those who have come before in approach to riffs, organ use, and pacing, but doesn't let the old school ways of doom define it.

“...Doom, specifically, is about alienation,” main songwriter and guitarist Zachary Randall explains. If other acts can be said to be the trees of the forest, Northern Crown is the velvet fog unfurling through them.

Today you can experience that sense of alienation, as we have teamed up with the band to stream all the tracks from new EP "In The Hands Of The Betrayer." The EP is officially due out October 14th, but you can now check out all the songs below - including the band's cover of the Candlemass track "Crystal Ball."

Randall notes that, “this is easily the most personal art I've ever created...both musically
and lyrically.” Listen in below and let us know what you think of the release! For more information on the band, head over to the Northern Crown website here.
