ROCK CITY BOOKING
November 2015, a few hours after leaving Nightmare, Jo Amore (vocals, former Now Or Never) and his brother David (drums, Archange) decided to start a new project: Öblivïon, an another band, featuring Markus Fortunato, the six string bass maestro, with his wild melodies (Fortunato). Completing the line-up were Steff Rabilloud (former Nightmare, Urgent) and Florian Lagoutte (former-Despairhate) with their powerful guitar riffs.
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 Europe.
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.
So KINGCROWN is born from the ashes of Öblivïon !
Jo Amore said -"We believe that this new name is a perfect fit with the epic and majestic theme of our lyrics and music!"
2020 - 2021, 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.
KINGCROWN, the French Heavy Metallers met in the south of France to resume writing material for their long-awaited third album.
Earlier today the band shared a new photo of the new line up around Jo Amore - Joe Stump’s Tower Of Babel, former Nightmare, Now Or Never & David Amore drummer - Archange, former Nightmare.
At the end of spring 2021, 3 new musicians join the Amore's brothers, with a long experience in studio and on stage :
Bob Saliba on guitar/backing vocals - guitar Rubicon, bass/vocals Galderia former Debackliner, Stonecast -,
Seb Chabot on bass/backing vocals - vocals/guitars Galderia, former vocals Engraved -, finally Ced Legger on guitar/backing vocals - Embryonic Cells, former Headless Crown, Lachesis.
Jo Amore went on to say that KINGCROWN's last writing session on the French Riviera in early July and August went really well.
Jo 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".
"KINGCROWN is back in town and resume his place on his throne, KINGCROWN is dead, Long Live the King ! "
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.
It's the travel of humanity out of an ancient and disturbing world right into a new one, centered on equilibrium, clarity of mind and unity of the souls.
It recounts the challenges that we have to face to change our paradigm of existence and transform our lives for the better.
“𝑾𝒂𝒌𝒆 𝑼𝒑 𝑪𝒂𝒍𝒍” has all the elements that a melodic power metal fan could ask for. It’s the record that perfectly bridges the gap between the Euro power scene with the American power metal titans of the 90’s.
An album that is a true statement for the humanity’s lethargy and the title couldn’t be more fitting : A “𝑾𝒂𝒌𝒆 𝑼𝒑 𝑪𝒂𝒍𝒍” from 𝐊𝐈𝐍𝐆𝐂𝐑𝐎𝐖𝐍 to the world!
