Defunct Swedish thrashers THE CROWN have announced plans to issue a posthumous three-disc DVD set in the near future. According to a posting on the group's web site, the upcoming set will be "a colossal damage to head and eyes!! This magnificent hail to the fans will take you on a dangerous rollercoaster-ride deep within the halls of hell. Forget everything you`ve heard. You have it all on tape here — the true story of THE CROWN. The final chapter, written in blood, sweat and tears on a shiny silver plate out to kill (the priest) one last time. WATCH OUT!!!!"
THE CROWN recently issued a posthumous CD, "Crowned Unholy", featuring a free bonus DVD, entitled "The Crown Invades Karlsruhe". The DVD, which is not to be confused with the above-mentioned separate release, is a full live show filmed professionally on THE CROWN's last tour in Karlsruhe, Germany on November 24, 2003.
"Crowned Unholy" is a remake of the band's fifth album, "Crowned In Terror", with re-recorded vocal tracks by Johan Lindstrand, re-recorded bass tracks by Magnus Olsfelt, a new version of the intro (originally written by guitarist Marko Tervonen, now programmed by drummer Janne Saarenpää),drum sound digitally enhanced by Janne, and cool synthesizer-spiced parts, all programmed by Janne.
