The Crown - Hell Is Here
This is my favorite album by the Swedish death/thrash metal band The Crown. It was released back in 1998 on CD and I was listening to the album alot when it came and it have been played quite alot during the years after it was released.
it is some kind of “dirty” sound, a mix between death metal nad thrash metal with lots of catchy melodies and for time to time quite fast and aggressive.
In March 2017 Metal Blade Records re-released this album and “Deathrace King” (2000) on vinyl. It was released on regular vinyls and limited versions. Re-mastrered for vinyl.
This version of the album is the limited red vinyl with black marble, limited to 200 copies worldwide. The sleeve is a 400g heavy cardboard spine (inside out print), 60x60cm two-sided artwork posters and 250g inserts with lyrics and also lots of small photos of the band. The actual artwork may be a bit too much, fire, pentagram & the metal horns all at the same time, but it looks nice and you can´t miss what this is about.
