You read the headline, right? So, you understand we’re not talking about Swedeath mainstays the Crown? Just Crown, no definite article. K, great. The three French gentlemen above bring a very different kind of noise on forthcoming second full-length Natron, due out August 14 on Candlelight. The PR depiction of their approach is accurate (“hissing electronics, charging guitars, and splashing cymbals of a minimal yet completely effective drum machine”), but leadoff track “Serpents” is all about That Riff. We’re talking Isis Celestial-level slow-bang, people. Turn this fucker up and get hurt.
