Bryan As someone who came of age at the turn of the millennium, hearing bands like Thrice and Rise Against scrape against the ceiling of indie success, I can't help but hear a similar crossover appeal in Gravity. Don't get it twisted: Black Spirit Crown has the hesher intensity of High On Fire and the murky melodicism of Monolord, but this seems like a band aspiring to more than Xeroxing the same old stoner-sludge riff-salad. Call 'em a gateway band if you must, but there's no denying the craft here. Favorite track: Orb.

Andy K. This is a kick ass album. Great production. All the instruments sound so good. Took me a few months to get turned onto this banger but I’m sure glad I did. Thanks

Nuno Lourenço Now here is a style I don't usually listen to, but minds can be changed when confronted with such quality and focus. This is a fantastic display of Doom/Stoner, played perfectly. The riffs are superb and the singing is just top notch!

Doomstar 08:10
Demon's eye shines in the night, polestar of the damned Fickle rays, no guiding light, close to darkness I stand Herald of catastrophe, I'll be Ruled by chaos, eternally... under Doomstar Bringer of tragedy Doomstar In radiance I shall be I was born beneath this gaze, Omen of the left hand Cursed to maddened, dreary days, shadows cover the land I'm the whisper of treachery in your mind Clarity you'll never find... under Doomstar Bringer of Tragedy Doomstar In radiance I shall be Raise up your eyes To faithless skies In the house of bones Your fate is yours alone Honor means nothing... under Doomstar Bringer of Tragedy Doomstar In radiance I shall be

Saga 06:19
Sing to the gods Conquer the world in their name Drink to your foe Proving your strength with their blood Life for the fight Conflict the measure of man Die without shame In battle with sword in your hand Let them come! Though we die tonight We'll drink in Asgard As is our right With hammer and sword Battle the giants of frost Berserkers arise Claimed by the valkyrie's song Thunderer calls Dragonships course through the night Winter wolf howls Chained by divine sacrifice Let them come! Though we die tonight We'll feast in Asgard As is our right ODIN! You heed the call of thunder You feel earth's serpent writhe Allfather's eye upon you You know you're gonna die Answer the call! Stand fast in the shieldwall Jotun must fall Ragnarok comes for us all You heed the call of thunder Now heed the call for blood.

Orb 08:59
Stars align, storms of ice We didnt heed the warnings See the Orb from the stars rain fire down on Impact zone, megaton lays waste to monuments and burn the flesh, strip away Illusion of body Traveler of Time and Space Projected to this distant place Living Orb collides with atmosphere Arrives the liquid metal sphere Stars align, storms of ice We didnt heed the warnings See the Orb from the stars rain fire down on Impact zone, megaton lays waste to monuments and burn the flesh, strip away Transcending matter Ancient signal beamed to outcast Earth Agent of Order brings rebirth Reflected light of our unrighteous past Reveals the truth to man at last

Teutates 05:00
And thou shalt name me "Be Of The Tribe" That I might claim the, taking thy life Bear my flame across the land Before my altar spill blood and ale To drown apostates, we will prevail! Wear my ring upon thy hand Write my name across the sky In lines of fire 10 miles high Within my coma you will be Held eternal I hold the world in iron hands, I travel pathways not meant for man Erratic though my journey be The astral vault spins before my eyes, Plunging headlong (I) burn through the skies No White Ship to carry me Write my name across the sky In lines of fire 10 miles high Within my coma you will be Suspended dormant, eternally Formed of stone My path across the sky will Lead you home Pay me in blood Be of the Tribe Give up thy life You've bought my aegis with your blood By ring you've named yourself beloved But still the deep calls out to me I must escape this Gravity I'll write my name across the sky This trail of fire drawing nigh A Megalithic tragedy Suspended dormant, Immortality

Gravity 21:09
Orbit decaying Touch down on wanderer Hibernation receding We stand cold on ragged stone Alone Stellar wind waning Escape velocity overcome Systems shutdown, converging Wide awake under silvery stars Underneath this alien sky (They) brought us here, now it's time to die Human cargo left behind Sentenced death by a robot mind Un-sustained by mothership Ends our million light-year trip A.I. future now is first A.I. future universe Beneath the fading light This Gravity Is killing me

Black Spirit Crown Cleveland, Ohio

From the heart of America’s Rust Belt comes Cleveland, Ohio’s Black Spirit Crown.

Out of a shared need to create a textured and deep wave of sonic obliteration, Black Spirit Crown formed in late 2015. Occupying a smoky space between doom, stoner, and heavy metal the members seek to craft thunderous journeys through space and time. ... more
