A SMASHING ALBUM!
Progressive death metal akin to the world’s best! An instant buy!
Finally, a high-quality progressive death metal album that lifts you up to grasp hope in Jesus rather than searching for your way in disbelief amidst the riffs of life.
Epic, heavy, and somber describes the moments as you are taken on an emotional journey, engulfed in a wall of sound and atmosphere. Layer upon layer of interweaving melodies fuse together with bombastic 8-string guitars, fretless bass, piano, atmospheric acoustic guitar, soaring leads, and choirs which give way to intense guttural vocals and passionate vocal harmonies. Crowned in Sorrow crafts its own sound with a nod to influences such as Swallow the Sun, Shape of Despair, Amorphis, Paradise Lost, Paramaecium, Opeth, Schaliach, and November's Doom. In addition, fans of Vials of Wrath, Scar Symmetry and progressive death metal will LOVE this heartfelt and powerful creation! The mastermind behind Crowned in Sorrow, weaving together the talents of well-known artists such as DC Milles (Vials of Wrath) and Luke Renno (Crimson Thorn), is Derek Corzine also known for his death metal albums under the name Blood Thirsty.
Lyrically, this album takes a faith-based approach and deals with death, grief, and loss as every song is about someone or something in my life that has died.
