5.0 out of 5 stars All Hail the Crown, 3 Sept. 2012
By 
This review is from: All Hail the Crown (MP3 Download)
For those who are familiar with the work of Shawn Smith, he reprises his role as frontman to a `heavy rock' band. Those who picked up the From the North record will have some idea of what to expect, but it's clear early on that Day and Hommell add a real sense of power to Wood's heavy, often sludgy riffage (check out English Rule).

At times the band sound like a marriage of Alice in Chains and Steve Vai, while there's also moments that sound (like From the North) like Jimi Hendrix channeled through Tony Iommi. Smith's vocals and sense of melody often trip wonderfully against the band's rhythm (particularly on From the Swamp to the Stars and Colossus).

All Hail the Crown is an outstanding record which I expect to be in the stereo for quite some time. The band have taken the chemistry and formula of From the North and taken their cosmic jams to the swamp. Cranking the levels up a notch and introducing themselves in fine fashion.

Trust me, if you like Alice in Chains or Soundgarden, I imagine you'll be just as taken All Hail the Crown. Here's hoping that they feel like treating us to a second record.

All Hail the Crown indeed.
