    Suicide Silence's third full-length maintains the visceral brutality that has characterized their output, even as it builds upon their unsettling strengths. [Aug 2011, p.120]

    Although there are storming successes amongst the album's 11 tracks (such as 'Slaves To Substance' and 'You Only Live Once') The Black Crown falls a fraction shy of the pack-shedding statement it needs to be.

    This is the first suicide Silence album where each song has an identity of its own, and the first suggestion that true greatness is within their reach. [16 Jul 2011, p.51]

    So far, the best album from this band besides their first one. The Guitar and bass match seamlessly with the drums and the lead singers voice really makes every song come alive. Probably one of the best hardcore albums to date. Expand
