Crannk Interviews Crownshift-Daniel Freyberg

With members hailing from some of Finland’s most renowned and universally beloved metal bands, including Nightwish, Children Of Bodom, Wintersun, Finntroll, and Mygrain, Crownshift has finally unveiled their self-titled debut album May 10th via Nuclear Blast Records, and I recently caught up with Daniel Freyberg(Children Of Bodom, Bodom After Midnight) to discuss the album and all things Crownshift.

CROWNSHIFT – born as a longtime idea of four friends, is a new high-standing metal act from Finland. The members are from the ranks of Finland’s finest export titans like Nightwish, Children Of Bodom & Wintersun, are thrilled to start a new journey together and spread their authentic sonic print across the globe. Covering seamlessly a diversity of styles, the quartet has a unique signature on their modern sound. Hypnotizing melodies paired with ripping riffs, from moody mid-tempo songs to a fierce prog-death-metal opus, CROWNSHIFT was born to be a master of all trades. The debut album is a showcase of relentless ambition that will take you through a wide musical spectrum with no compromises or boundaries, assuring the band is on a quest to put a massive mark on the map.
