Praised by fans and critics alike for their outstanding 2020 debut album (“Impius Viam“), Sweden’s Night Crowned have unleashed the hotly anticipated & worthy successor, titled “Hädanfärd”!

With nine tracks spanning over 45 minutes, the band’s brand new full-length record is an intoxicating blend of uncompromising blackened death metal, symphonic arrangements and bleak & mesmerizing soundscapes. No surprise here, since the band’s line-up consits of well experienced extreme metal veterans, featuring former and current members of legendary acts such as Dark Funeral, Nightrage and Cipher System!

Thematically inspired by a story by singer K. Romlin, which deals with encounters with death, “Hädanfärd” is an infernal, bleak monolith of an album, one that will most likely see Night Crowned step out as one of Sweden’s best kept blackened death metal secrets.

Vocalist K. Romlin states: “What we made is not just an album, it is a story. A story that has no beginning, nor end. A story that is as old as time itself. This is a story about life given & life taken, this is the tale when I meet death.

Initially planned as a double album (in English, as well as in Swedish), “Hädanfärd” will be coming out in Swedish language only, in order to release the band’s most authentic, as well as honest, work to date. “Hädanfärd” will be coming out on digipak CD, vinyl, digital and in limited Vinyl / CD merch bundles. 

Comments about the album:

“”Hädanfärd is accessible and rousing, but offers a lot of material to discover – fans of melodic black as well as blackened death metal are strongly advised to give it a listen.” [Metal Hammer, DE (5/7)]

Melodic overtones, symphonic terror and above all unremitting exhilaration from start to finish! [Powerplay, UK (9/10)]

“Night Crowned put on the black metal crown with their gigantic album Hädanfärd! [ (10/10)]
