Band Contact


...is a metal band from Umeå in northern Sweden who are not afraid of crossing genre boundaries. With influences from powerful bands like Pantera, Devin Townsend, Meshuggah and Sepultura this five-piece mixes everything from thrash/death metal, rock and punk to ambient and acoustic music, delivering a progressive layer of fast, slamming and brutal metal riddled with soaring and haunting melodies.

Crowdburn has prior to their debut album 'Ignition' already made some impressing achievements. In just two weeks after getting a full line-up they reached the finals in the Swedish radio station competition Bandit Unsigned with their song 'Pictures'. Thereafter the band kept their pace up, simultaneously doing shows around Sweden and writing new material. In 2011 they officially released the mini CD 'Confronted' which was very well received by both fans and reviewers. The song 'Burning Crowd' was featured in UK magazine Metal Hammer's 'New Guard CD', proving that they now were one of the 15 hottest new metal bands. They were also played nationwide by Bandit Rock and P3.

Crowdburn are also known for their music videos. Both songs 'Confronted' and the cover 'Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites' are great Youtube successes. Together they have close to half a million views and Scary Monsters topped the Swedish charts during the week it was released.

"Ignition" will be released on October 11th by Swedish record label Discouraged Records (fame of bands like: Plector, Abandon, Moloken, Terrortory, System Annihilated, This Gift Is A Curse, etc).
