Crowned Unholy = 2 CD / DVD = (CD)
So apparently The Crown was very unhappy with how Crowned in Terror turned out, in terms of it's production. It didn't help matters that their were issues between new vocalist Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates) and the rest of The Crown. This caused the band to walk away from the record with a bad taste in their mouths. Later, original vocalist Johan Lindstrand returns to the fold and The Crown records 2003's Possessed 13. At this time, Michael Trengert (Metal Blade Records) offers the guys an opportunity to revamp Crowned in Terror. They pounced. So a number of changes are made. The record gets completely remastered. Johan's fucking monstrous vocals replace Tomas completely. New bass tracks are recorded (the lack of low end on the original bass tracks had been a major source of dissatisfaction). Every drum beat is painstakingly enhanced, one by one. Add in some keyboard flourishes and a some changes to the intro, and there you have it. Crowned Unholy is (re)born. And what was a killer death metal record to begin with is elevated to classic status. Accompanying the CD is a DVD of a live show in Karlsruhe, Germany. It sounds really good, and the band pulls out a slew of dandies from throughout their entire career. However, the most interesting thing about the DVD for me is how un-death metal Johan looks on this particular evening. The guy looks like he could be singing cover tunes (or performing magic) in Vegas. But then he lets loose with these ungodly growls...fascinating.
