Their original moniker until 1998 was CROWN OF THORNS for the band's first 2 albums "Eternal Death" & "The Burning", which had to be changed due to the U.S.band CROWN OF THORNS threatening legal action. From their inauspicious origins within a very crowded extreme music scene, Sweden's THE CROWN slowly rose to the very top of the Scandinavian death metal class. ''Hell Is Here'' is the 11 track debut album under the new banner from orginal released 1999. 47 minutes of technical, melodic death metal in absolutely inevitable Swedish tradition, with Black & Thrash bonds. If IN FLAMES is too lame and the rest has too much Black Metal, you will certainly be rewarded here.
