Funeral For A King
Epic, massive doom with nods to Candlemass, Bolt Thrower, My Dying Bride and Iron Maiden! Los Angeles doom crew Stygian Crown returns with their long-awaited sophomore album, Funeral for a King, a formidable LP built upon the foundation of epic doom and death metal. The members of Los Angeles-based epic doom metallers Stygian Crown found themselves with the luxury and subsequent burden of time when composing the material for their second studio album, Funeral for a King. It was a luxury because the band now had the opportunity to comb over their tracks with a fine-tooth comb, removing and improving upon their ideas. It was a burden because months, then years, flew by before Stygian Crown was finally happy with the finished product because of their attention to detail and unwillingness to compromise. However, it was all in the name of avoiding the dreaded "sophomore slump," something Funeral for a King annihilates with a resounding hammer blow of doom.
