Stéphane Gallay Kingcrow propose ici un métal progressif qui navigue élégamment entre « métal » et « progressif », avec des incursions vers la pop contemporaine – celle qui ne fait pas honte quand on l’écoute. Ce n’est pas forcément très brutal, ni très complexe, mais ça joue avec élégance de l’alchimie entre les deux styles. Favorite track: Open Sky.

Hardo A really great step forward. Not prog really, but very impressing melodies and arrangements. Favorite track: Adrift. Favorite track: Adrift.

Dann 'the djentle giant' «In Crescendo», the previous album of this Italian band was good. Not impressive, but good. But this one is totally awesome! I can't say something negative about that, except that I'd want some more. The album is too short, one single hour is too short to solve my craving... Whatever, Kingcrow will surely surprise me with a their next opus. I'd give it a 9 out of 10. Favorite track: The Moth.

about

Following the success of their In Crescendo album released through Sensory in February 2014, Rome, Italy-based progressive metal sextet, KINGCROW, returns with Eidos, a conceptual album about choices, consequences, dealing with regret and disillusion. As their Phlegethon album dealt with childhood, and In Crescendo about the end of youth, Eidos can be considered the third part of a trilogy about the path of life. Musically it sees the band exploring new territories and pushing the extremes of its complex soundscape with a darker atmosphere and a more progressive attitude.

Eidos was recorded at Sound Under Pressure in Rome, with the production handled by Diego Cafolla and Thundra Cafolla. Several guest appearances help create the album’s new atmospheres, including saxophone provided by Stefania Bentivoglio on the track, “Slow Down,” and piano by Fred Colombo of Spheric Universe Experience for the track, “The Deeper Divide.” Mixed by Giampiero Ulacco and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music in New York, the stunning production of the album is matched by visionary artwork by Cristian Nastasi/Devilnax. With over an hour of new material, Eidos is the next logical progression in the evolution of KINGCROW, and will open the next doorway for whatever lies ahead.
