2013-02-28 Robin Sörqvist joined The Crown and Album News



A lot of things are happening with The Crown at this very moment.
We are in the middle of recording a true masterpiece. Marko is more or less done with his rhythm guitar work and Magnus has started with the bass stuff. He recorded a bass track for one song today before we all got together and filmed a small "jingle" for our Japanese friends.
Only 3 months until we hit Japan for the very first time. We are extremely excited about this. Hopefully we´ll see YOU there. Cheers!

Last but not least. We are very proud to announce our new line-up. Yes, we have a new member in the band. His name is Robin Sörqvist and he fits the band more than perfectly. You have probably heard him in the band IMPIOUS before. He´s got the lead guitar skills and the will to kick ass, just as the rest of us. Please embrace Robin with a big and loud HELL YEAHHHHH!!!!

See you around!
/Marko, Janne, Johan, Magnus, Robin

2008-08-01 The murder is out.
New Singer of Dobermann (The 4/5 The Crown Project) is: Mr.Andreas "Whiplasher" Bergh.
Read what Marko wrote at the Angel Blake myspace blog:
"Here´s more info about "the new band featuring 4/5 The Crown members".
The band has been named Dobermann and Mr.Andreas "Whiplasher" Bergh completes the line-up as Mr.Andreas `Whiplasher` Bergh the singer.
Not many people noticed when The Crown released the Possessed 13 album, that Andreas actually wrote the lyrics to the song Deliverance. Also 2002 when The Crown was without a singer Andreas was supposed to fill in for a US tour (featuring Kreator and Destruction) with us, but logistics got in the way so we cancelled the tour. So he..s definitely not a stranger to us...
Ok, you might have figured out that Andreas is the singer of Deathstars and also the former singer of the Death Metal band Swordmaster.
- "I'm totally hyped about finally writing songs with this act of 666% nitroglycerin, he says. Dobermann is just genius".
And to give you a little hint of where we..re going musically, I guess the simple "pure adrenaline, insanely good death/thrash.' has to do it for now… ;-)
Ok, More details to follow…"
