The Crown was a death/thrash metal band from Trollhättan, Sweden. Originally, they used the name "Crown of Thorns" but were forced to change their name due to another band already using that name. Their music and lyrics were inspired by death, antireligious themes (mostly targeting Christianity) and rebellion. They were known to fuse death metal with thrash influences. The Crown disbanded in 2004. After that, Lindstrand went on to form One Man Army and the Undead Quartet. Tervonen formed Angel Blake, named after a song by Danzig; and was joined by Saarenpää on drums. Sunesson is in a band called Engel. Olsfelt is also in a band called Stolen Policecar.
