William Crispin Initially thought it might be a bit close to 90s hard rock and bit far from doom for me. I find it gets multiple listens thought...... Maybe not deep but nicely polished/produced. Favorite track: Light Ov The Voodoo Star.

CROWNED BY FIRE - LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
JOHN FITTERER (VOCALS) ANECDOTES AND SONGS EXPLAINED TRACK BY TRACK
Recording at The Black Vatican:

There were 2 actual surreal moments I experienced while recording at the Black Vatican. One was hanging in Vatican kitchen with Tommy Victor and drinking Valhalla Java Coffee while writing down a verse of my lyrics to our song Buried Away for Tommy to sing on, then watching him perform the part while Zakk frequented the room with words of sarcastic encouragement. The next was a complete Spinal Tap moment as I walked into the Vatican to lay down vocal tracks with Adam Klumpp and find Zakk throwing down about 10 takes of the lead guitar on the song Space Music For Cave People. He was schooling Justin on playing a blues lead over the tune. Fucked up thing, both mine and Justin’s iPhones were frozen in limbo uploading new IOS software (in a cell phone dead zone) in the hills of the infamous BLS compound, so none of this was documented at all, and worse yet, no thumbs up to use the boss’s lead on the album, ha!!

Track 1: Buried Away
Buried Away is a tale of terror with a foot in the grave and an open eye into the abyss, kinda like a classic Horror-Sci-Fi burrito smothered in ROMERO sauce.

Track 2: Light Ov The Voodoo Star
Light Ov The Voodoo Star is a blatant tribute (lyrically) to one of my all time vocal heroes Lux Interior R.I.P. The title of the song is a lyric from the Cramps song Voodoo Idol off the album Psychedelic Jungle, hopefully his undead corpse is rollin’ over in his grave!

Track 3: Crowned By Fire
The very first time me and Justin jammed together in the Summer of 2006, he broke out this heavy swampy blues metal riff and I immediately started singing this thing I’d written called Crowned By Fire. The lyrics were inspired by the classic science fiction movie The Illustrated Man based on short stories by Ray Bradbury. The riff and lyrics came together so organically we were both blown away. A month or so later we agreed this was the best name for the band. 

Track 4: Something In Her Blood
I wanted to try my hand at a love song. Something In Her Blood is a mix of Roger Corman’s adaptation of Poe’s The Pit And The Pendulum and Danzig’s Her Black Wings, at least that’s what I was going for…

Track 5: Space Music For Cave People
Space Music For Cave People is a 2 fisted salute to what CBF stands for, keeping the music grounded and pure!! Like our forefathers Black Sabbath, Motorhead, AC/DC etc.., We are Crowned By Fire, and we play Rock’n’Roll!! Somehow this story spewed out of me under the influence of Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. I always dug the dawn of man intro scene, the secrets of the black monolith and the extraterrestrial eye monitoring the existence of mans life, purpose and function on earth and beyond… 

Track 6: Burnin’ For You
Drove to a CBF rehearsal cranking a BOC cd in my car, told Justin we should do a cover of Burnin’ For You with heavy guitars and straight forward blues punk vocals. Seemed to work. . All of the vocals and most of the music on this track was recorded in Florence, Italy at Larione 10 Studios during the Prone To Destroy recordings in the winter of 2008. Was killer having Sterling Winfield re-open the tomb of this tune and throw down his magic upon the mix.

Track Name: Buried Away(featuring Tommy Victor)
BURIED AWAY

HOLLOW HILLS BEYOND THE GRAVE
SALT AIR CRASHING WAVES
BRING YOUR WEAPON AND WALK REAL SLOW
DAWN WILL RISE ABOVE THE STONES
LIGHT THE TORCH AND WATCH YOUR STEP
THE WRETCH IS WICKED ON THE CLIFF
BEAST MAKER OVERTAKER
DIVINE CREATION ABOMINATOR

RISE ABOVE WITH BLOOD AND PLEASURE
ELECTRICAL IMPULSES MEASURE
SHAKE THE BONES AND HOIST THE CHAINS
OPEN THE SKY OF THUNDER AND RAIN

BURIED AWAY BURIED AWAY
TOMBSTONES ABOVE DECAY
BEHOLD THIS MASS DESTRUCTION
UNDEAD ILLUMINATION

THE SERPENTS SLITHER IMMINENT DOOM
THE CREATURE LURKS IN THE BLACK LAGOON
HEAVY BREATHING LIGHTS THE AIR
BEWARE THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS
ROCKET SCIENCE OF A DIFFERENT MIND
YOU TAKE YOURS AND I’LL TAKE MINE
EYE FOR AN EYE BLACK COSMIC LIGHT
THE DEVIL’S WORK UNDER THE KNIFE

RISE ABOVE WITH BLOOD AND PLEASURE
ELECTRICAL IMPULSES MEASURE
SHAKE THE BONES AND HOIST THE CHAINS
OPEN THE SKY OF THUNDER AND RAIN

BURIED AWAY BURIED AWAY
TOMBSTONES ABOVE DECAY
BEHOLD THIS MASS DESTRUCTION
UNDEAD ILLUMINATION
Track Name: Light Ov The Voodoo Star
LIGHT OV THE VOODOO STAR
 
BEFORE TIME WAS EARTH THE SKY RAINED BLOOD
THROUGH THE TOWERING EYE BUBBLED OCEANS OF MUD
THERE WAS A GOD WITH THE DEVIL’S EYES
A LITTLE HAND REACHING THROUGH OPEN THIGHS

OUT CREPT A DEMON WITH ANGEL WINGS
WITH A VOICE OF GUITAR AND A CHURCH BELL RING
DEMONS OF THE FIRE GODS OF THE SEA
WHAT DOES THE FUTURE BEHOLD FOR ME

THE INVISIBLE VOICE 
AT THE END OF THE BAR
LIGHT OV THE VOODOO STAR
THE BLOOD SOAKED SCREAM
IN THE BACKWOODS NIGHT
IN THE LIGHT OV THE VOODOO STAR
THE EMPTY WHISKEY BOTTLE 
THE VISIONARY SIGHT
LIGHT OV THE VOODOO STAR
I'M JUST BLEEDING IN THE DARK 
IN AN EUROPEAN PARK
IN THE LIGHT OV THE VOODOO STAR

SHE WAS AS PERFECT AS A HEADHUNT AT DAWN
DEEP IN THE JUNGLES ON A PSYCHEDELIC LAWN
THE SKYS WERE BLACK THE EARTH TURNED BLUE
THE HERBS BURNED GREEN THE NATIVES MADE STEW

EVOLUTION BREWED WHILE THE OCEANS ROARED
UNDER MASSIVE MOONS THE PREDATORS SOAR
ALL IN ALL AS FOR WHAT ITS WORTH
NOT OF THIS WORLD NOT OF THIS EARTH

THE INVISIBLE VOICE 
AT THE END OF THE BAR
LIGHT OV THE VOODOO STAR
THE BLOOD SOAKED SCREAM
IN THE BACKWOODS NIGHT
IN THE LIGHT OV THE VOODOO STAR
THE EMPTY WHISKEY BOTTLE 
THE VISIONARY SIGHT
LIGHT OV THE VOODOO STAR
I'M JUST BLEEDING IN THE DARK 
IN AN EUROPEAN PARK
IN THE LIGHT OV THE VOODOO STAR
Track Name: Crowned By Fire
CROWNED BY FIRE 

HERES TO THE SKYS AND YOUR EYES WIDE OPEN
HERES TO THE ONLY ONES LEFT FOR DEVOTION
YOU HELD IT IN YOUR HANDS AS YOU WHISPERED THE SPELL
THOSE UNDER THE SKIN LIVING IN YOUR HELL
AS I LAY IN THE PLACE OF YOUR TORTURED SPACE
YOU WILL NEVER FORGIVE THIS NEGATIVE FACE
ISLANDS ON THE MOON STARS SHOOTIN' DOWN HORIZONS
LASHING AT THE SQUEALS OF A THOUSAND SIRENS

CROWNED BY FIRE THOSE WHO DESIRE
LET THE BLOOD FLOW AS THE FLAMES GROW HIGHER
CROWNED BY FIRE THOSE WHO DESIRE
LET THE BLOOD FLOW LET THE BLOOD FLOW
LET THE BLOOD FLOW

SUCKED INTO THE VORTEX HEXING YOUR FIND
MUTTERING THE WORDS CLOUDING THE MIND
PULLING LIKE A RICKSHAW SLIDING TEETH OVER BONE
SACRILEGIOUS OVERTURES NO PLACE LIKE HOME
WELL I HELD IT IN MY HANDS AS I WHISPERED THE SPELL
BLOWING LIKE THE WINDS OF MY OWN PERSONAL HELL
YEAH I HELD IT IN MY HANDS AS I WHISPERED THE SPELL
BLOWING LIKE THE WINDS OF MY OWN PERSONAL HELL

CROWNED BY FIRE THOSE WHO DESIRE
LET THE BLOOD FLOW AS THE FLAMES GROW HIGHER
CROWNED BY FIRE THOSE WHO DESIRE
LET THE BLOOD FLOW LET THE BLOOD FLOW
LET THE BLOOD

LET THE BLOOD FLOW AND THE HATRED SHOW
WRITE IT ALL DOWN LIKE EDGAR ALLAN POE
SIPHONING SERENADES OF INCOMPASSIONATE MOANS
FEEL THE HUNGER OF YOUR OUTER SPACE AGE CLONE 

CROWNED BY FIRE
Track Name: Something In Her Blood
SOMETHING IN HER BLOOD

I BREATHE THE FIRE OF THE RAGING SUN
THE BLOODY SABBATH AND THE KINGDOM COME
DISTANT SCREAMS IMPLY MY DESTINATION
TOOLS OF TORTURE SICKNESS OF OBSESSION

SOMETHING IN HER BLOOD
THERE’S SOMETHING IN HER BLOOD

THE UNDEAD OF THE RISING SUN
STATUES OF THE CHOSEN ONES
THE FRIGHTFUL EDGE OF DESTINY
THE SPIRIT OF LOW FREQUENCIES

I BREATHE THE FIRE OF THE RAGING SUN
THE BLOODY SABBATH AND THE KINGDOM COME
DISTANT SCREAMS IMPLY MY DESTINATION
TOOLS OF TORTURE SICKNESS OF OBSESSION

SOMETHING IN HER BLOOD
THERE’S SOMETHING IN HER BLOOD

THE FAILURE OF IMPENDING DOOM
THE SOLITUDE IN A HAUNTED ROOM
GHOST LIKE IMAGES UPON THE WALLS
SLEEPING IN SAFETY WHILE THE PENDULUM FALLS

THE UNDEAD OF THE RISING SUN
STATUES OF THE CHOSEN ONES
THE FRIGHTFUL EDGE OF DESTINY
THE SPIRIT OF LOW FREQUENCIES

I BREATHE THE FIRE OF THE RAGING SUN
THE BLOODY SABBATH AND THE KINGDOM COME
DISTANT SCREAMS IMPLY MY DESTINATION
TOOLS OF TORTURE SICKNESS OF OBSESSION

SOMETHING IN HER BLOOD
THERE’S SOMETHING IN HER BLOOD
Track Name: Space Music For Cave People
SPACE MUSIC FOR CAVE PEOPLE

EARTH BONE AND STONE
WE HAVE NEVER BEEN ALONE
I DRAW YOU PICTURES UPON THE WALLS
I’VE SHOWN YOU HOW THE SPACE MAN CALLS
THE GREAT SPIRIT IN THE SKY
ILLUMINATING MICROSCOPIC EYES
HIS TELEPATHIC TELEPHONE
UPON THIS EARTH SAND BONE AND STONE

SPACE MUSIC FOR CAVE PEOPLE
WE HAVE NEVER BEEN ALONE
SPACE MUSIC FOR CAVE PEOPLE
THE EARTH IS NOT OUR ONLY HOME

BENEATH THE WATERS THROUGH THE SEWERS
CHASING DREAMS LIKE BEERS IN THE COOLER
WHEN THE LIGHTS COME SHINING THROUGH
THESE MOLECULES WHICH EMBODY YOU
NOTHING VENTURED NOTHING GAINED
TWO LANE HIGHWAY DOWN IN FLAMES
ANOTHER DOSE OF MEDICATION
APOCALYPTIC AMPLIFICATION

SPACE MUSIC FOR CAVE PEOPLE
WE HAVE NEVER BEEN ALONE
SPACE MUSIC FOR CAVE PEOPLE
THE EARTH IS NOT OUR ONLY HOME

CAN’T YOU SEE THE WRITINGS ON THE WALL
DRINKING FROM THE BLOOD OF ROCK AND ROLL
CAN’T YOU READ THE WRITING ON THE WALL
I BELIEVE I BELIEVE IN ROCK AND
THY KINGDOM COME THERE WILL BE ROCK AND
DRINKING FROM THE BLOOD OF ROCK AND ROLL

SPACE MUSIC FOR CAVE PEOPLE
WE HAVE NEVER BEEN ALONE
SPACE MUSIC FOR CAVE PEOPLE
THE EARTH IS NOT OUR ONLY HOME

STONES ARE THE BONES OF THE EARTH
BLOOD BONE FIRE DEATH REBIRTH…
