Bringing You Metal


Boris Karloff once said, “Nature is just as content to destroy as it is to create” and Crowned By Fire are “Prone To Destroy” everything in sight, all in the name of creation!

CROWNED BY FIRE are a ferocious four piece hard rock/metal band from Los Angeles that's been relentlessly crushing American stages since early 2006. Musically, the band is tight and punchy like Slayer, brutally loose like Black Flag, with enough early Sabbath doom riffs to wipe out your enemy planet.

Their full length debut album Prone To Destroy was recorded in Florence, Italy and their forthcoming EP Space Music For Cave People was recently recorded at Zakk Wylde's Black Vatican Studios, mixed by legendary Texan producer/engineer Sterling Winfield and is set for a July 1, 2014 release on Chrome Mountain Records.

"Crowned By Fire are essential Heavy Metal that crosses over everything that is great in metal from Traditional HM sounds to Doom to Sludge to classic Hard Rock. I love this band and seeing them live was a magical experience." -Ed, DOOMMANTIA
