Following their recent addition into the ranks of Sensory Records, Italian prog metal act Kingcrow have released the first full single from their pending fifth studio full-length - In Crescendo.
The opening track to the nearly hour-long In Crescendo, “Right Before”, wastes no time in letting you know exactly what the members of Kingcrow are about with this newest creation. Right Before is available for your listening pleasure via PureGrainAudio. Sensory Records, a division of The Laser’s Edge, will release In Crescendo in North America on February 12th. Stay tuned for further updates as the new album nears release, and as Kingcrow takes to the road.
Having evolved from a mostly progressive metal direction, Kingcrow have increasingly expanded the scope of their sound to encompass elements of rock. Nowadays, their sound features strong atmospheric components similar to Riverside, Porcupine Tree and Pink Floyd; but also bearing a heavier, metallic semblance to Opeth and Dream Theater. Over the past two years Kingcrow has expanded the band’s fanbase through European tours in support of both Redemption and Jon Oliva, in addition to performances at ProgPower Europe and ProgPower USA. Plans for a U.S. tour are being devised for 2013 in support of In Crescendo.
In Crescendo was produced by the band’s own Diego and Manuel Cafolla at Sound Under Pressure in Rome; the album was then mixed by Giampiero Ulacco and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music.
