CROWNING / SWALLOWS NEST: Split: 7”

From opposite ends of the globe, Crowning and Swallows Nest each play a mix of black metal and screamo that had me in touch with my inner emo nihilist. Of the two bands, Crowning’s three tracks on the A Side held up better after repeat listens. If you’re ready to watch the world burn, and be sad about it, this will definitely be part of your end of the world playlist. –Paul J. Comeau (Zegma Beach/IFB, [email protected])
