Crowned Unholy is a seventh studio album by Swedish melodic death metal band The Crown. It is a remake of the band's fifth studio album, Crowned in Terror, with re-recorded vocal tracks by Johan Lindstrand, re-recorded bass tracks by Magnus Olsfelt, a new version of the intro (originally written by guitarist Marko Tervonen) now programmed by drummer Janne Saarenpää, drum sound digitally enhanced by Janne, and synthesizer-enhanced parts, all programmed by Janne.

The album also contains a free DVD entitled The Crown Invades Karlsruhe, a professionally recorded show in Karlsruhe, Germany on November 11, 2003, while on tour performing Possessed 13.

Reception[edit]

In a March 2007 interview, The Crown frontman Johan Lindstrand was asked if he felt re-recording old tracks for the album was actually the right decision. "I think it was the wrong decision", revealed Lindstrand. "Having said that, it was also a chance for the diehard fans to have all the albums with me, the original singer, on all of them.[1]
