Demise of The Crown are possibly Montreal’s best kept secret, combining hard-hitting songwriting and headcrushing riffage with blinding shred, but never tastelessly and always seamlessly. An original harsh vocal style the likes of which I have never encountered gives way to angelic singing at times and the guitar solos seem effortlessly composed and executed. They’re like an amalgam of every style of modern metal without sounding like a mish-mash – impressive.
“Black Rain” is Demise Of The Crown’s new single mixed and mastered by Chris Donaldson at The Grid 2016, and today we bring you the premiere of the music video for that song, directed by Carlos Guerra. The new single is mixed and mastered by Chris Donaldson of Cryptopsy at The Grid and follows the band’s debut self titled album released this past March that was produced by Kevin Jardine (Uplift Studios, guitarist of Slaves On Dope) plus mastered by Joao Carvalho (Protest The Hero, Alexisonfire, Rush). Get their debut album directly from them on Bandcamp.
