Gothenburg, Sweden based blackened death metal act Night Crowned has announced theirs new studio album “Tales”, slated to be released on November 10th, 2023, via Noble Demon.
Night Crowned has emerged as a force to be reckoned with in the heavy music scene. Their debut studio album, “Impius Viam”, released on February 28th, 2020, (Noble Demon), instantly captivated both critics and fans, solidifying its place as one of the year’s most exceptional releases. Comprised of former and current members of renowned acts such as Dark Funeral, Nightrage, and Cipher System, Night Crowned possesses a musical vision that is as haunting as it is clear. With their debut, they have crafted a work of art that exudes rage, melancholy, and pure destruction, resurrecting the dormant sounds of the influential Scandinavian acts and masterpieces from the 90s.
Night Crowned’s rigorous pursuit of musical excellence knows no bounds, as they wasted no time in releasing their highly anticipated follow-up record, “Hädanfärd”, on July 9th, 2021. Inspired by a story penned by vocalist K. Romlin, “Hädanfärd” delves into encounters with death, weaving a far-reaching concept that was meticulously developed during the band’s intense demo process. The album’s nine atmospheric tracks, accompanied by K. Romlin’s written interpretations and explanations, form an infernal and bleak monolith that solidifies Night Crowned as one of Sweden’s best kept blackened death metal secrets.
On November 10th, 2023, the band’s highly anticipated third full-length record will be released, again via the esteemed Noble Demon label, which once again has stunningly beautiful colored vinyls, shirt and Digipak CD bundles on offer. With “Tales”, Night Crowned embarks on a new chapter, pushing the boundaries of blackened death metal to unprecedented levels. Brace yourselves for an auditory assault that defies conventions and redefines the limits of the genre. Night Crowned is a force to be reckoned with, and their relentless pursuit of musical excellence shows no signs of waning. With lyrics in both English and Swedish, Jonathan Thorpenberg’s mixing skills put the band’s sound on full display, while Jani Stefanovic’s mastering ensures that every note is hit with precision.

Listen to the haunting first single “De Namnlösa” below.
Vocalist K. Romlin on “De Namnlösa”:
“I had the title for ‘De Namnlösa’ written down long before the demo was even done. The lyrics tell about an entity called Myling, a ghost of an unbaptized new born child. I really love the story of this entity and that you get that horror touch in the music”.
“Tales” will be coming out on November 10th, 2023, via Noble Demon and is available for pre-order here.
