Launches video for “Iron Crown”

Swedish death metal legends The Crown have announced their new album, Cobra Speed Venom, for a March 16th release through Metal Blade Records. Produced together with Fredrik Nordstrom at Studio Fredman, the record promises to be one of the biggest surprises of the year. A return to death metal speed and darkness in full glory!

The Crown comments: “We are really looking forward to finally be able to show our fans how damn good this band can be when the circumstances are right. With that I mean to be able to do an album the way we want to do it: creating as a band, rehearsing as a band, recording as a band. You will hear a band performing here, with fierce energy and hunger!”

To watch the video for the first single, “Iron Crown”, please visit: metalblade.com/thecrown – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:


–ltd. first edition Digipak-CD with 2 exclusive bonus tracks
–180g black vinyl
–viole(n)t blue marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
–pale lilac marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–purple red splattered vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 100 copies)
–dusk blue splattered vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 400 copies)
–white/purple splattered vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 100 copies)
–limited boxset [including ltd. edition Digipak-CD/exclusive 7″ with both bonus tracks/exclusively colored album vinyl (opaque rose/black marbled)/exclusive back patch/hand signed photo card – limited to 300 copies]
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

With their motivation at an all-time high, The Crown spent most of 2017 intensely rehearsing 13 new songs. They eventually entered the classic Studio Fredman with Fredrik Nordstrom to record what would become their new album, Cobra Speed Venom. The sound is massive, brutal and a real punch in the face. Extreme speed and aggression mixed with classic heavy metal and rock n’ roll, which really shows that The Crown has no boundaries. The apocalyptic theme of the lyrics and music also fits perfectly with the outstanding artwork of Christian Sloan Hall.

After 27 years, the band is still motivated to create a classic piece of art – and together with Metal Blade Records once again, the vision is real.

Cobra Speed Venom track-listing:
1. Destroyed By Madness
2. Iron Crown
3. In the Name of Death
4. We Avenge!
