Los Angeles doomers Stygian Crown have released the second single 'Two Coins for the Ferryman' from their forthcoming self-titled debut album. Stygian Crown will be released on June 26 on CD and vinyl via Cruz Del Sur Music. The digital version will be released on June 19.

Stream 'Two Coins for the Ferryman' below:

ClawHammer PR states:

"Sheer death metal heaviness and doom collide on this earth-moving debut!
On their self-titled debut album Stygian Crown introduces the sound of "Candlethrower" to the world: A devastating combination of doom and death metal, topped off by classically-trained vocals!

They call it "Candlethrower". It conjures up images of doom-dancing and rolling tanks; doom-on-death; death-on-doom; Candlemass and Bolt Thrower melded together. Considering the background and sizeable résumés of its members, it wasn’t by accident Los Angeles’s Stygian Crown happened upon this sound. On their debut self-titled foray, Stygian Crown offers something few bands have in their arsenal: An album tuned to B, with a 26” bass drum and a singer who doesn’t need auto-tune."

A promo video for the album's first single, 'Up From The Depths' is available below.

Stygian Crown tracklist:

1. The Hall of Two Truths
2. Devour the Dead
3. Up from the Depths
4. Through Divine Rite
5. Flametongue
6. When Old Gods Die
7. Trampled Into the Earth
8. Two Coins for the Ferryman

Great news!


The demo was epic doom and now the band pivots to doom/death? Interested to see how this goes.

Except maybe in the strength of some riffs, I don't hear death metal in these two tracks, I believe it may be embedded in some of the other songs.

The PR statement is the cringiest thing I've ever read.

And yeah, gotta agree with Notrap here. The death metal elements are suspect at best. It's a very mild death metal presence in what is essentially just generic sounding doom.
