BLACK CROWN INITIATE have released ‘Vicious Lives’, the third single off their new albumSelves We Cannot Forgive, out July 22nd via Long Branch Records / SPV. The final track on the record and one of the most atmospheric and darkest songs the band has ever recorded, it’s a perfectly fitting final movement for Selves We Cannot Forgive.
Black Crown Initiate have worked their way into the heavy music community’s collective consciousness with steady determination. Likeminded supporters who made the thrilling discovery of songs like ‘A Great Mistake’, ‘The Fractured One’, and ‘Withering Waves’ are rewarded in kind by the continued evolution on Selves We Can Not Forgive.
As Black Crown Initiate continuously proves, heavy metal and heavy intelligence don’t have to be mutually exclusive. These men are conjuring an awe inspiring body of work that is as unstoppable as it was inevitable, like existence itself. This is high-minded art delivered with a guttural growl.
On top of all, the pennsylvanian progressive metallers BLACK CROWN INITIATE will join BORN OF OSIRIS, VEIL OF MAYA and VOLUMES on the Sumerian Alliance tour across the UK and Europe.
