Svart Crown aren’t a band that I’ve been aware of until now. I feel guilty about that because these bad lads bring the motherfuckin’ ruckus. Hailing from France, they describe themselves as blackened death metal – I’d say that’s pretty much spot on. If you’re into the heavy shit then check them out, for fans of Behemoth and Nile. They come out swinging with some straight up metal bitch slaps to the face. There’s more to them than just that though, adding some more gothic influences which brings some more depth to their songs.
Kevin Paradis displays his technical ability in this drum play-through for “Transsubstantiation”. There’s some absolute death metal drum trickery going on here. Unlike some drummers we feature on here, Kevin looks like he fully means it, head banging while blastbeating and double-kicking the living hell out of his kit. There’s even some candlesticks for that added gothic vibe. His footwork is on-point and his consistency of his hands is next level.
The full length album Abreaction is being released on March 3, 2017 through Century Media and is available for pre-order here.
