The progressive metal aficionados at New Jersey-based Sensory Records
have announced the pending release of the newest album from Italy's KINGCROW
, "In Crescendo"
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
Over the past two years, KINGCROW
has expanded the band's fanbase through a European tours in support of both REDEMPTION
and JON OLIVA'S PAIN
, 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"
. Sensory Records
, a division of The Laser's Edge
, will release "In Crescendo"
in North America on February 12. "In Crescendo"
