Skipping This New Black Crown Initiate Song Would Be A “Great Mistake”


When Reading, PA’s Black Crown Initiate released Song of the Crippled Bull last year, they were riding high on the hype train. When I first heard it I just couldn’t get into it. Something about it just didn’t click with me for some reason. A few months later, the intro to “The Stench of the Iron Age” was constantly getting stuck in my head and I decided to throw on the EP. What the heck was wrong with me when it came out?? This band shreds.

Anyway, they have a new album called The Wreckage of Stars coming September 30 on eOne Music, and they’ve just put up the opening track, “The Great Mistake”, on SoundCloud. Check it out below:

Pretty great right? I don’t know what it is, but phrygian dominant melodies = never not awesome. Randall Thor said “it’s like if all the wanky tech death noodly woodly bands stopped and actually wrote a song“.
