Born as the long-time idea of four friends, Crownshift are a new high-standing crossover metal act from Finland. The members, who come from the ranks of Finland’s finest metal exports, are thrilled to start a new journey together and spread their authentic sonic print across the globe.

Seamlessly covering a diversity of styles, the quartet has a unique signature to their modern sound. Hypnotizing melodies paired with ripping riffs, from moody mid-tempo songs to fierce prog-death-metal opuses, Crownshift were born to be master of all trades.

Their forthcoming self-titled debut album consists of eight contemporary melodic death metal anthems with a progressive edge and captivating choruses for the ages. Crownshift’s members are or have been involved in some of Finland’s most renowned and universally beloved metal bands, including Nightwish, Children Of Bodom, Wintersun and Mygrain, and it shows. On their first album Crownshift have managed to combine their collective experiences and have crafted a modern metal masterpiece that sounds distinctively Finnish and offers stellar songwriting and excellent production.
