For those not in the know; in the 1990s, CORONER caused quite a stir within the music industry with their progressive and technically sophisticated sound. All over the world, CORONER was considered one of the most unconventional, avant-garde metal bands,attracting the attention of global greats like Metallica. Today, CORONER is highly respected by not only by musicians such as Max Cavalera (Sepultura), Franz Treichler (The Young Gods) and Mille Petrozza (Kreator), but also by metal fans throughout all genres of metal. After the release of Grin, CORONER unfortunatelycalled it a day, which saw their best-of album, Coroner, being released two years later. Then, in 2011, Tommy Vetterli, Ron Broder, and the then drummer and founding member, Marky Edelmann returned to the stage. At the time, the members of CORONER were almost certain that they would not be able to find the time for a new studio album. “Almost” being the key word here.
