Crowned In Earth - Metempsychosis
Label: Sonic Mermaid Records
Campaign Ended 12.04.15
Crowned In Earth first came into being in 2008, the earthly manifestation of the musical vision of Kevin Lawry. Kevin had already made a name for himself with his one-man, epic doom entity, Silent Winter, but under the Crowned In Earth banner he gradually began to spread his wings.
The debut EP, Welcome To The Brotherhood Of The Crown was released in 2008 and whilst it underlined Kevins affinity for and mastery of the doom metal genre, it also showed the first indications that Crowned In Earth were to possess wider musical horizons. The full length debut, Visions Of The Haunted, released in 2010 on Shadow Kingdom Records, saw Kevin joined by Falcon
drummer Darin McCloskey whose natural, powerful style added another dimension to the Crowned In Earth sound. The duo then took a huge leap forward with 2012s A Vortex Of Earthly Chimes, a masterful album that blended truly progressive thinking and musicianship with their doom roots. With this album Crowned In Earth shook off all the shackles of expectation, leaving them free to really take flight into the wonderful multi-coloured dreams of Metempsychosis...
bassist Pug Kirby now added to their ranks, Crowned in Earth have become a complete entity, with the power and vision to explore bright and brilliant new musical worlds. Metempsychosis is an album without borders, a listening experience without limits, a feast for the imagination. Slip beneath the surface of this latest and greatest creation from Crowned in Earth and let it carry you on a journey youll never want to end...
