|Spawned in France by guitarist/vocalist J.B Le bail, Svart Crown was born in 2005 with the idea to push the boundaries of extreme music, and create a new dimension of brutality and blackness. Following numerous tours in his native land, Svart Crown released its first album, Ages of Decay in early 2008. The band has been promoting this first effort since then, with countless shows and two European runs.
Around J.B. Le Bail, guitarist C. Frandrois, bassist L. Veyssière and drummer G. Barthélemy (also known for his works with Diabolic, Drowning, Balrog and Antaeus) complete the line-up.
Svart Crown has now finished the new album: Witnessing The Fall marks a new and significant step in the history of the band. The sulphurous and oppressive atmosphere are emphasized by an organic sound crafted by Sébastien Tuvi (Antaeus, Hell Militia, Aosoth) and Francis Caste (Kickback, Arkhon Infaustus, Phazm) at St Marthe Studio.
Svart Crown has successfully mixed an old school feeling with various modern influences. Witnessing The Fall is simply the new face of the band; a black beast, full of anger, a symbol of humanity in perdition.
