The THE CROWN debutalbum ''The Burning'' from orginal 1995 had been out of print for a long time. The first edition, which still ran under the original name CROWN OF THORNS, of course, too. The then very young troupe from Trollhättan landed hereby a direct hit, which probably didn´t come because of the then density within the Swedish elk death scene not completely to the fore. Without exception, the 11 tracks stand for technically flawless and varied Death/Thrash Metal, which come to their own thanks to a powerfully precise production. The crisp sound of Berno Poulsen, u. a. Also responsible for AMON AMARTH, GOD DETHRONED, is doing his part, which is why this re-release in digipack has a clear justification.
