DEMISE OF THE CROWN
Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Were from Montreal Qc. The band's sound has developed from progressive to a heavy metal band that has a pop format structure to the music in order at times to lure people into the realm of metal. The bands official line up came through many years of playing music with different people in the Montreal metal scene and slowly forming the official line up in 2014. Each of us have spent time paying dues in the local community and now we have banded together with the same goal and vision which is to shake the foundation of power metal, and give it a fresh sound.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
Melodic, heavy, dark, and fluid. There are some elements of power metal mixed with hard rock and even death metal. A wide range of bands have greatly influenced us, if I had to list some of them now, I'd say: Nevermore, Opeth, Van Halen, Decapitaed, Faith No More, Asking Alexandria, Queensryche, Pantera, Avenged Sevenfold, Mozart, Escape The Fate and MANY MORE…too many to list.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
Because were trying to raise an awareness about a genre of metal thats lacking these days, not just musically but vocally as well. There is nothing wrong with "cookie-monster" vocals, we love bands with screamers, but its all starting to sound the same and were trying to bring a breath of fresh air to the scene and mix things up a bit. What we do is genuinely what we like and were not trying to rip anyone off. After many years of hard work, we have found and created our own sound as a result of all our biggest influences. We put love into each track, give it a nice structure, good musicianship and catchy choruses. Basically, we try to avoid writing filler songs just for the sake of having more songs that no one cares about.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
As of now we have released our first official music video. We did an exclusive premiere with Revolver Magazine and our self-titled LP drops March 4th. So far the feedback has been great, metal fans are reacting well to it, just goes to show you, you don't need 8000$ to make a video that will intrigue people.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Yes, the shows are getting bigger and better and now that the video is out, and an album is going to get released, it helps a lot in terms of promoting our shows and getting more people interested.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We are a new band and we are very hard working. We just released our first music video 2 days ago through Revolver Magazine, were getting amazing feedback, a lot of shares and likes. Our debut album drops March 4th.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Apart from playing as many shows as possible and promoting the album release, we have 11 new songs in the final stages of pre-production. Were going to record a single with the well renowned Glen Robinson, which will be the track for our next music video release. We are extremely excited for this.
Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
Online stores such as: Spotify, Amazon, iTunes, Google play Deezer and Youtube Art tracks
