Pennsylvania death metallers BLACK CROWN INITIATE release their new album, "Selves We Cannot Forgive", via Entertainment One Music. "Selves We Can Not Forgive", the band's sophomore album with Entertainment One, is a lean and focused collection that jettisons the extraneous fat found too often within ambitious metal bands, striking a balance between fearless adventurousness and methodical might. It follows "The Wreckage Of Stars", which together with their self-financed "Song Of The Crippled Bull" EP introduced BLACK CROWN INITIATE's unapologetic exploration of everything from Friedrich Nietzsche and Greek Sophist Gorgias to Hinduism, Buddhism, and indigenous mysticism, with a pragmatic skepticism.
2012 release, the fifth album from the British Hard Rock band fronted by vocalist Skin. Black Traffic, the band's follow-up to the critically acclaimed 2010 album Wonderlustre, was recorded in London and co-produced by Chris Sheldon (Foo Fighters, Biffy Clyro, Pixies) and mixed by Jeremy Wheatley and Adrian Bushby. "We've wanted to be charge of our own destiny for many years, the doom & gloom merchants may whine about the music industry but we've seen it as a positive chance to re-invent how we work and take more control over our art form. With our new album Black Traffic and new label we are really excited with the future of skunk, this is my personal favorite as an album, even better than Wonderlustre which spawned some great songs. We're back and f**k me we're gonna enjoy every last minute of it!" "We got back together because we have a strong chemistry," says Skin of the band's return. "We're very proud of our past work, but what drives us is the future".
