Frank would like to thank:
My metal maven/producer/wife extraordinaire Stephanie Rosenblatt, the doom maestro Zach Randall, the beastly beat machine Josh Brown, my best buddies in the band Dark Hound (www.dark-hound.com), my mother Patricia and my supportive family on both sides, Doug Gibson & Ty Arthur at MetalUnderground.com, and Ibanez/Fender guitars and amps.

Josh would like to thank:
I would like to thank Zach Randall for asking me to be a part of this musical journey, Frank and Stephanie Serafine for being a part of this as well as opening up their home and allowing me to eat their food and drink their beer, my other band mates in Dark Hound, and my wonderful parents! I would also like to give a shout out to Tama Drums, Pearl Drums, Zildjian, Remo, Axis Percussion, and Vic Firth. Those companies never cease to make products that give me the sound I’m looking for!

Leona would like to thank:
The other guys in NC, especially Mr. Randall for getting me involved in the project and giving me feedback about all the bass parts no matter what it was! We made a record! Maybe next one we can do in the same room! Additionally, I’d like to give a shout to my friends in Faethom, David, Mariela, and Daniel, and also Mr. Floyd Carinci. Hail and Kill to my bandmates in Weaponlord! If Yamaha wanted to toss me a bass endorsement, that’d be cool too!

about

Northern Crown Florida

As modern torchbearers in the dark halls of heavy metal, Northern Crown pays homage to doom bands past but doesn’t let the old ways define it entirely. Northern Crown is the sound of realization and reaction, with a touch of smoke & mirrors. Equal parts austere and ostentatious, but heavy all the way through. ... more

Track Name: With Malicious Eye
(solo: Zachary)

With every word, she lied
Casts a short glance
Of revealing intent
Taking my place alongside

Gazed upon with malicious eye
Striking, unforgiving
Tempting, unsagacious
Brief and precious

From whence she came, obscure
Slight glimmer of hope
Or a foolish wish
I remain of her, unsure

(solo: Zachary)

In despair, I turn to her
In the stars I saw
The end, already written
I now fear her love unpure

Gazed upon with malicious eye
Striking, unforgiving
Tempting, unsagacious
Brief and precious

With every word, she lied
Casts a short glance
Of revealing intent
Taking my place alongside

Gazed upon with malicious eye
Striking, unforgiving
Tempting, unsagacious
Brief and precious
Track Name: Surreality (The Tell-Tale Mind)
(solo: Leona)

Slowly start to wake
And live amongst the stars
Experience sidereal ecstasy
Seeing cosmic bazaars

I see the colors you don't see
Running down the wall
Infinity between spaces
Unfamiliar sights enthrall

But now I start to wonder
Do the others know
Will they persecute me
For the power I have grown

I see the colors you don't see
Running down the wall
Infinity between spaces
Unfamiliar sights enthrall

Reality changing
Rearranging
Courage waning
Madness reigning

You can see me
But won't come near
Can you hear me
I can smell your fear

You'll never know
When I draw near
You softly breathing
See your dreams quite clear

(solo: Zachary)

They'll never find me
But they'll never try at all
Dead body lying
The soul beigins to crawl

(solo: Frank)

If you know my secrets
Then in blood you'll drown
If you choose to defy me
I'll bring my hammer down

I see the colors you don't see
Running down the wall
Infinity between spaces
Unfamiliar sights enthrall

Reality changing
Rearranging
Courage waning
Madness reigning
Track Name: No One Came To Mourn Me
No one came to mourn me
Nights of obsession
And endless decades
Wasted on frivolity

I never saw those who loved me
Myopic from ambition
A life without respite
Unaware of coming tragedy

(Solo: Frank)

I missed those who sought me
Often lost and never found
But from the fate
I did not flee

Under the oak tree
Forlorn and alone
He wipes a tear
As no one came to mourn me
Track Name: Apostate
Contemplating loss of faith
And waxing upon matters of fate
Ready for the longing to abate
All shall be well, the lady sayth

Time to abandon wishful lies
Will not recant, no desire to try
The wishes of the divine, I defied
When I witnessed truth in her eye

In times besieged by conflict
Life, death, the ascent, the fall
After time erodes and driving winds
Who will succumb, who stands tall

Craving war is in our blood
But the wise ones will choose their battles
While the brave and foolish
Will surely fall

(Solo: Zachary)

How many times have I stood before
On this unhallowed field
Draw into a harried maelstrom
From the anger that I wield

(Solo: Vincent)

As I settle into the fog of war
Bloodlust overtakes me
Hear only the death rattle
Full depth of rage unsealed

Today will I choose
To die upon this hill
My deadliest enemy
Is my dying will
Track Name: Les Autres
(Solo: Frank)

A torment for me, realized
Burns bright and won't subside
Did you that hell is The Others
I now know that hell is The Others

In an empty room
With barren walls
Risen again and standing tall
A tiny feat, yet not so small

Brave enough to face the world again
But we both know how this will end
A glimpse of joys beyond reproach
They escape as I approach

As I try to explain
How my life and soul it drains
The Others, inhumane
And indifferent to the pain

(Solo: Frank)

A puzzled look arrives
And I begin to sigh
As you dare to ask why
I want to die

The bile rises in my throat
cuts off air, I begin to choke
From this pain there grows no love
As no hand ever came from above

My mind goes blank
My vision turns red
And comes the violence
That I most dread

Feral and uncaged
And blind with rage
is this the time
I go too far

Take a deep breath
And begin to regain control
Hijacked by extreme passion
But I can control my actions

But I see a glance
Another, not by chance
The Others judging gaze
Perception becomes crazed

(Solo: Evan)

Hell is The Others

(Solo: Evan)

Hell is The Others

And my Hell is You

(Solo: Frank)
