Swedish death metallers THE CROWN have returned to Metal Blade Records for a multi-album deal. The band has just finished recording its new, as-yet-untitled album at Studio Fredman, and the record promises to be one of the biggest surprises of the upcoming year. A return to death metal speed and darkness in full glory!

Metal Blade will release “Iron Crown”, the first single from the upcoming album, as a limited seven-inch single on January 12.

A video teaser for the song can be seen below.

The B-side features the exclusive new song “Ride The Fire”, which will not be featured on the long-player.

The “Iron Crown” seven-inch single will be released in these colors: black (300 copies), silver (200 copies), red transparent (100 copies).

Comments THE CROWN: “We are very honored to be back working with the label that supported us through many albums. The biggest ‘steps’ during our career have been thanks to Metal Blade. We have always had a strong mutual will to make the best possible albums. Now let’s fire up this death metal engine again!”
