Svart Crown release first single from forthcoming new album

Check out the video from Svart Crown for their new single ‘Thermageddon’, the first to be taken from new album Wolves Among The Ashes.

The album is released on February 7, via Century Media Records, and singer JB Le Bail said: “We are again pretty excited to reveal the first track of our new album Wolves Among The Ashes. It was the first track we wrote for this album, and it shows a certain desire to come back to the blackened death metal we loved in the late 90s: uncompromising, direct and with no superfluous element.

“But we cannot ignore that some doors were opened on our past releases and I am pretty sure that everyone is going to be surprised by what will happen next… This time, too, everything has been under the supervision of our Nganda “Francis Caste”, who captured our best sound production to date.Last but not least, Dehn Sora gave us the perfect post apocalyptic vibe that this album needed.”

The extreme French metal outfit have undergone some lineup changes before the release of their fifth studio album. This new set of songs promises a deep and introspecting journey, from freezing black metal vibes to post-modern apocalyptic death metal.

Across tortured and bleak landscapes, the quartet is exploring the most sombre and psychotic traits of humanity, from the telluric plea of ‘Thermaggedon’ to the powerful vision of their new monolith ‘Living With The Enemy’, slithering through sexual innuendo on ‘Art Of Obedience’ or channeling spirituality on ‘Down To Nowhere’.

With its message both poignant and thoughtful, Wolves Among The Ashes is a true devil in sheep’s skin and a new exciting milestone in Svart Crown’s history. The band will hit the roads of Europe early in the New Year with GosT, with a London date at The Underworld confirmed for 15 March.
