It was five experienced gentlemen from the Aarhus metal scene who formed Crocell in early 2007, and the pace was high from the start. Thus, the debut album, “The God We Drowned,” was recorded the same year, and almost simultaneously with its release in 2008, Crocell was named “metal talent of the year” at the Danish Metal Awards. 

It was the beginning of a respectful underground career for the Danish collective, featuring members that are and were active in other bands such as Illdisposed, Urkraft, The Petulant, Mordax and Demolition Inc., among many others. The following years were spent playing sweat-soaked gigs, travelling the Danish roads and abroad and releasing five full-length albums and two EPs.

Danish metal has seen one band after another flare up and die out, but after 17 years, Crocell continues undeterred, having long established itself as an indispensable player in the Danish metal scene with almost seven releases under its belt and over 100 concerts in over ten countries. 

“Of Frost, Of Flame, Of Flesh” will be released on Gatefold LP (black vinyl, limited to 300 copies), 8-panel digipack CD and digital formats on June 28th, 2024 via Emanzipation Productions.
