5.0 out of 5 stars All hail the new kings of thrash! June 11, 2002
Format:Audio CD
With thrash originators like Metallica, Slayer, Sepultura, and Megadeth having long since modified their sounds (I'll avoid using the word "sellout," as that is a matter for another discussion), The Crown stand poised to lead the genre through the new millenium. "Crowned in Terror" is an unbelievably intense and well-constructed album from this Swedish outfit. The ripping riffs and blastbeat drumming that open the title track after a brief intro promise a roaring good time, and the album never fails to deliver. Tomas Lindberg's voice hasn't changed much from his "Slaughter of the Soul" days with At the Gates, but he seems more committed than ever to lacerating his larynx to please the crowd. The guitars pile on one devastating riff and blazing solo after another, relentlessly pounding out aggression. The rhythem section is among the tightest I've ever heard, led by Jaane Saarenpaa's mindblowing precision and variety on the drum kit. But perhaps most importantly of all, this album is an unmitigated blast to listen to. The Crown imbue their thrash with a fun and energetic spirit that hearkens back to the days of such albums as "Kill 'Em All" (Sure, I was only four in 1983, but I can imagine). However, despite that fact that music like this has been done numerous times before, the Crown take their influences and turn them into a sound that is all their own. In a thrash genre that has now existed for about two decades, they are retro without being derivative, and that may be their most remarkable feat of all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Damn! February 12, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I just bought this cd today and I love every song! From start to finish this cd smokes! That's a rare feet in my eyes. I am new to the death/black metal scene, and this is by far the best cd I have bought (Death's "the sound of perseverance" a close 2nd.).

If you are just getting into this type of music also, and want something that will blow you away!! Check this cd out. I promise you want be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let me explain. May 23, 2003
Format:Audio CD
No, this is not like Slayer. And no this is not entirely like At the Gates. It is far more brutal then either of those bands, and Tomas' vocals are more intense then his days in At the Gates, perfect, if you ask me. Yes, it does have some At the Gates sounding stuff, becuase of course they are both Swedish bands. Although that is so, it actually has an even divide of Gothenburg and American sounding parts, while the American parts are not as "grindy" (as I put it), as most American death metal. All of the songs are some what "melodic" sounding ... exept for "Death Metal Holocuast" which is an all out American style death metal song.
With all that said, this is a phenomenal peice of work. No filler. No half baked songs. This is an entire album of brilliantly blended Swedish and American fury. This CD still kicks my butt every time I put it in the CD player. The drummer is insane, though he tends to repeat his fills a lot, but we'll let that slide, becuase the fact that he can do steady fills in between his high speed (and always precisely on time) blast beats, is good enough. The guitar work, is very good, switching on and off between the American leads, and the "melodic" Gothenburg leads.
Once again, I give this the highest recommendation, it's a great CD, no filler, just great death/trash the whole way though ... buy it!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Death Metal... July 24, 2002
By Pablosa
Format:Audio CD
When I listen to albums like this, I'm really proud of being a metal fan...This album is awesome.The vocalist is Tomas Lindberg(At The Gates, Grotesque, Infestation, LockUp, Disfear, The Great Deceiver, Skitsystem) most known as "Tompa". He doesn't match his work in At The Gates 'cause he doesn't force his voice that much, but he does a great job in this album...The Crown is pure chaos...Violence, aggression, speed and chaos combined in a perfect mixture of death metal (what would you expect from songs entitled "Death Metal Holocaust" or "Crowned in terror"?). The Crown plays death metal, that can be called sometimes melodic, or sometimes just pure old-school death metal...But these guys rock. This album is really intense and dinamic. They combine AtTheGates, Slayer, Motorhead or even faster and extreme, with lots of fresh, new and intelligent ideas, making the difference with bands of the same style. Lots of combinations of riffs, different drum speeds, cool solos, chaotic vocals (combined together with a great sound!) won't let you rest while you're listening to this album. It seems these guys have their finger on the pulse of heavy metal. This album rocks!! For any heavy metal fan!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the genre's Crowning achievements, for sure December 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Quite a while ago, I bought "Crowned In Terror" without hearing anything off of it first, and without even know for sure what kind of music The Crown played. But once I popped this disc in and heard the second song (which is the first real song; the first track is just an orchestral intro), I was absolutely hooked.

This album has everything I love about thrash/death/melodic death metal: catchy, almost brutal songs composed of big, lumbering riffs, quick, cracking drums, and gruff, raspy (somewhat high pitched) death metal vocals. (Original vocalist Johan Lindstrand sat out during the recording of this album, The Crown's fifth, and the frontman from the godly, seminal melodeath band At The Gates stepped in, in his place.)

The title track (which is the aforementioned second track, but first real song on here) combines deft, walloping drums beats with crushing riffs. "Under The Whip" starts out with a catchy, skipping rhythm and powerful, machine gun double bass drumming, but then segues to become a strong, churning (almost steamrolling) rhythm. "World Below" is another highlight (it features fast, chug and churning guitar hooks and a winding, ascending and descending solo), as is the blisteringly fast eighth track, "(I Am) Hell", which boasts a fiery, almost blinding guitar onslaught. One can't help but pay special attention to the three, back-to-back guitar solos on "Death Is The Hunter," and the album closer, "Death Metal Holocaust", is an ultra heavy rocker which is backed by buzzsaw riffing and very busy double bass drumming.

But "Crowned In Terror" isn't all-out mayhem. "The Seed Of Darkness" features well-placed spots of clean (almost spoken word), backing vocals, and songs like "Out For Blood" are more mid-paced and restrained.
