SALT THE WOUND is back with their original line up to bring the world their 3rd release on Rotten Records, "KILL THE CROWN". After over 3 years since his departure, front man and founding member, Kevin Schaefer, has returned with a vengeance. Writing more powerful lyrics than ever and strong vocal hooks in every song, Schaefer is confident that the group has written their best installment yet. Following a grueling tour schedule that covered over 20 countries in 3 years, these road warriors were used to writing and recording their own brutal brand of metal on the road. The group took a new approach to writing their third release, taking almost an entire year off of the road to focus on writing and revising "KILL THE CROWN" into the most crushing and brutal release the band has ever composed.
