CROWORD release their first uncompromising single “Crimson Gaze”, which is also the title track of the EP to be released on September 03, 2021, via NRT-Records. The single is accompanied by a technically and musically perfectly produced live video. Backed by melodic and precisely placed guitars, the song with harsh vocals describes how fear and hatred give way to sheer brutality and the border of sanity tears. The Austrian Melodic Death Metal band, consisting of mastermind and bass player Lukas Rappitsch, Johannes Eder (drums), Adrian Schattovits (vocals), Julian Schattovits and Dino Sulic (guitars), gives a fresh impulse to the scene with its intense sound strongly inspired by the Gothenburg Death Metal of the 1990s. With influences from Rock, Jazz and Classical music, CROWORD let a unique Melodic Death Metal symphony resound.
The Viennese metalheads have been attracting attention for several years now with their brute and technically sophisticated Melodic Death Metal. The new EP consists of four brand-new songs inspired by the works of painters such as Egon Schiele and Arnold Böcklin, who dealt with the abysses and peaks of human nature about 100 years ago. The harbinger of the second album planned for 2022 has been recorded at the Austrian Kochplatte Studio and Elophos Hill Studios. Andreas Koch has been responsible for the mix of the EP and none other than Jens Bogren (Fascination Street Studios), who already worked with Opeth, Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy and many others, has been won over for the mastering.
The music video for the title track also gives a perfect preview to the live session, accessible via secret link in the CD booklet as a bonus, which was produced with raw emotion and a lot of sweaty passion in the premises of the Austrian University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna. Here, the CD buyer is rewarded with eleven additional songs from the live session “Live Is More Than Just Breathing”, which contains live versions of the four new songs and also comes with the last years’ best-of tracks. Until the CD is in stores.
