Deathrace King

Rated 4.26/5 (85.22%) (23 Votes)

Yet another band I wish I had discovered earlier!  With Deathrace King, The Crown presents a very strong album with no song that can really be considered weak, although I found Dead Man's Song was not exactly up to par with the others, but still excellent.  If you're scared of Satanic lyrics, you might want to stay away from this album, since every song makes some reference to Satan.  Don't let that scare you though, because you'd be missing one of this year's best metal offerings.  Songs such as Vengeance and Rebel Angel just kill, as does the last one, Killing Star (Superbia Luxuria XXX), which has a great instrumental intro.

Beside Dead Man's Song, the album is very fast-paced from beginning to end, and you'll find yourself having a hard time taking it out of your CD player.  Highly recommended.
