The Skinny: The progressive metal aficionados at New Jersey-based Sensory Records recently announced the pending release of the newest album from Italy’s Kingcrow, In Crescendo. Not only are we excited to heat the new disc, but we're thrilled to bring you this exclusive new taste of what's to come. Hit up our player (or SoundCloud page) to stream the brand new song "Right Before", and be sure to check out the track listing and album cover art below. Sensory Records, a division of The Laser’s Edge, will release In Crescendo in North America on February 12th.
While working in a mostly progressive metal direction in the earlier days, Kingcrow has increasingly expanded the scope of their sound to encompass elements of rock, nowadays rounded-out in a culmination of strong atmospheric component similar to Riverside, Porcupine Tree and Pink Floyd but also bearing a heavier, metallic semblance to Opeth and Dream Theater. This is boldly present on the band’s fifth studio full-length, In Crescendo, the new album encompassing nearly an hour over eight epic movements. Produced by the band’s own Diego and Thundra Cafolla at Sound Under Pressure in Rome, the massive album was then mixed by Giampiero Ulacco and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music.
