Krownn are a band from Italy that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very traditional and epic form of doom metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Magmafrost" which was released by Taxi Driver Records.
Clean yet distorted psychedelic riffing starts off the album and after the intro the music goes into more of a heavier doom metal direction and the riffs also get very melodic at times and when vocals are added into the music they are all done in a clean singing fashion and the music is very heavily rooted in both the 70's and 80's.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and you can also hear movie samples at times and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses mid paced sections and 70's rock style guitar leads can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and one track also brings in a small amount of bass guitar leads and the album closes with a very symphonic and epic outro.
Krownn creates another epic doom metal recording t hat is very heavy, retro and melodic bringing in the 70's and 80's styles of the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Norse/Celtic Paganism and Fantasy themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Krownn and if you are a fan of retro or traditional doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wyvernking" and "Forge of Crom". 8 out of 10.
