Viking Crown

In the mid to late 90's, Phil Anselmo (credited under the pseudonym Anton Crowley) joined forces with keyboardist Stephanie Opal Weinstein (credited under the pseudonym Opal Enthroned) and vocalist Frank Pucci (credited under the pseudonym Killjoy). The twisted trio released original music in the vein of both first wave Black Metal and its Symphonic counterpart, while at the same time paying homage to grainy horror films such as William Peter Blatty's The Exorcist or F.

In the mid to late 90's, Phil Anselmo (credited under the pseudonym Anton Crowley) joined forces with keyboardist Stephanie Opal Weinstein (credited under the pseudonym Opal Enthroned) and vocalist Frank Pucci (credited under the pseudonym Killjoy). The twisted trio released original music in the vein of both first wave Black Metal and its Symphonic counterpart, while at the same time paying homage to grainy horror films such as William Peter Blatty's The Exorcist or F. W. Murnau's Nosferatu.

All of which is made apparent through the bands assumed intention of conveying affliction through varied lo-fi production , ominous textures, occasional synth layers, and keyboard arrangements (courtesy of Stephanie Opal Weinstein) coupled with a pragmatic yet belligerent attitude.

Viking Crown released a debut EP: Orthodox Steps of Ritual (1999), 2 LP's: Innocence From Hell (2000) and Banished Rhythmic Hate (2001), and one Split EP: Draped in Treachery (2005). All of the productions were released through Frank Pucci's own Baphomet Records.
