Swedish death metal veterans The Crown have announced that they have signed a new record deal with Century media, for their forthcoming new album, "Doomsday King" which will be released in September of this year.

Marko Tervonen (guitar) states: "We are happy as hell to turn a new page in The Crown's history book... and to pick up the journey with Century Media Records supporting us feels great. We can't wait to unleash Doomsday King upon you all!!!"

Jens Prueter (Head Of A&R, Century Media Europe) adds: "Some of the very early Century Media signings have been Unleashed, Grave, Tiamat, Asphyx, Morgoth – the glory days of the first death metal wave. We are still in love with death metal and are more than proud to announce the signing of Swedish death metal legend The Crown. They haven't lost any aggression since the early 90s and are still a guarantee for some death metal holocaust! In case of doubt, go to one of the summer festivals and hear some new songs live before the album's coming out this fall. We will be there as well. Cheers!"

Haven't listened to a full album yet. I think I ran across them on Last.fm and heard a handful of songs, but have some albums in my Amazon wish list (or will soon).

well then Deathrace King would definitely be my personal suggestion to you, my friend. Original vocalist Johan Lindstrand considers it the bands defining work as well.
