The band was originally formed back in 1990 as a primitive garage act. And it was first in 1992 that they made their first public appearance on a local compilation CD. In 1993 the band records the now infamous "FOREVER HEAVEN GONE" demo with its´ dark & brutal sound, then the second Demo "FORGET THE LIGHT":

Now the band had grown into better songwriters and musicians and the result was a very brutal, intense and evil Death Metal but with a lot more feeling and melody to it, some ´zines wrote that it was the perfect mix between the American and the Scandinavian sound… This led to a deal with the new Swedish Metal label "Black Sun Records". The debut CD "THE BURNING"

In 1996 the band once again entered the studio to record their second album entitled "ETERNAL DEATH"

In July 1997 the band is forced to cut their name short into just THE CROWN, due to pressures made by a Christian glam-pop outfit also called CROWN OF THORNS.

THE CROWN was ready for the third album: "HELL IS HERE"

The 4th album gloriously entitled "DEATHRACE KING" was recorded during winter 99 in the new-built Studio Fredman.

In early 2001 singer Johan Lindstrand decides to leave after 11 years down the line and Tomas Lindberg is recruited as the new singer. After destroying some summer festivals in 2001 their 5th album "CROWNED IN TERROR" is recorded, to be released in March, 2002!

In April 2002 The Crown and Tomas Lindberg have parted ways due to personal differences.

In March 2004 The Crown quits.

In Dec 2009 the Reunion take place, THE CROWN 2009 is:
* Jonas Stålhammar (GOD MACABRE, MACABRE END, ABHOTH) - Vocals
* Marko Tervonen - Rhythm Guitar
* Marcus Sunesson - Lead Guitar
* Magnus Olsfelt - Bass
* Janne Saarenpää - Drums

Doomsday King, their long awaited follow up to Possessed 13 is released 2010.
