Kingcrown announce the release of their new album “Wake Up Call”

Kingcrown’s upcoming album “Wake Up Call”  will be released on March 25, 2022 via ROAR! Rock Of Angels Records!

The powerful melodic metal band Kingcrown present their new masterpiece “Wake Up Call”. After an album titled “Resilience” under their previous name Öblivïon and their 2019 “debut” album called “A Perfect World” under their new name, Kingcrown, it was time for the band to make their second album under that name! “Wake Up Call” is an album that touches the theme of the awakening of human consciousness.

At the end of 2015, a few months after leaving Nightmare, Jo Amore (vocals, former Now Or Never) and his brother David (drums, Archange) decided to start a new project, an another band, a new adventure featuring Markus Fortunato, the six string bass maestro, with his wild melodies (Fortunato, Archange). Completing the line-up were Steff Rabilloud (former Nightmare, Urgent) and Florian Lagoutte (ex-Despairhate, ex-Fenrir, ex-Forsaken World) with their powerful guitar riffs.
Thus, Öblivïon was born in 2015 as a powermetal band composed of experienced musicians.
At the end of 2018, after recording an amazing first LP called ‘Resilience’, which was praised many times in the metal media (released by our label, Rock Of Angels Records), the band played many shows all around the world.
However, after a lot of thought, some extensive discussion and the agreement of the record label, the band has decided that it will grow stronger than ever under a new name.


And so Kingcrown is born from the ashes of  Öblivïon !

Jo Amore says “We believe that this new name is a perfect fit with the epic and majestic theme of our lyrics and music! Kingcrown stands strong and is ready to fight on the metal planet, face-to-face, eye-to- eye.
The adventure continues!”

During this difficult period of world pandemic, the envy left some members of the band, leaving Jo and David Amore to continue the adventure alone.

Jo Amore went on to say that Kingcrown’s last writing session on the French Riviera in early July and August went really well.
He said -“The best thing, we’re not killing each other, but we’re working really hard with this new line up, we’re having a lot of fun, we have about ten or 12 things ready to go and at this point, we think we have a great album, maybe the best one of our career, the first demos are very good and encouraging, in our humble opinion, we will record it”.
