about

In Crescendo is the fourth studio album from this Italian progressive band. While originally working in a purely metal direction, the band has expanded the scope of their sound to encompass elements of progressive rock as well. There is a very strong atmospheric component similar to Riverside, Porcupine Tree, and Opeth but the technicality of Dream Theater is clearly present as well.

"2013 has really kicked off in style thanks to stellar new albums like this one from the progressive band Kingcrow. In Crescendo is the fourth release from the Italians, this is quite an atmospheric recording which sounds crystal clear thanks to the excellent production that heightens the attraction values.

Kingcrow's choice of progressive music is an engaging fusion of metal and rock, you can hear the inspiration from others that Kingcrow have taken on board and style wise Kingcrow aren't that distant from celebrated progressive groups like Porcupine Tree and Riverside. Porcupine Tree actually sprang to mind when I heard "The Drowning Line" which as it kicks off sounds as though it was based on the Porcupine Tree song "Deadwing", and like that memorable song this is also a great number.

In Cresendo has Kingcrow opening with a powerful song called "Right Before" allowing the members of Kingcrow to display their technical prowess. " This Ain't Another Love Song" is a musical chameleon of sorts that shifts from a tranquil song to rock then metal and back closing in a more peaceful state. That soft music continues into a totally captivating song "The Hatch" which is also quite diverse and has so much to offer. "Morning Rain" is a slow gentle composition that builds up to a powerful performance from the band while "The Glass Fortress follows a similar pattern allowing their drummer to get animated and unleash some double kicks. "Summer '97" features more engrossing music which then leads us to the finale, title and longest track "In Crescendo" where Kingcrow bring this album to a triumphant conclusion with so much great and complex at times music and as with the other seven songs the vocals are also very inviting.

Watch out for Kingcrow's In Crescendo as I am sure this wonderful new album will receive loads of favorable approvals. In Crescendo is one album that really lifts your spirits, and isn't that a great thing when you find a quality release that has such a truly positive effect." - Seaoftranquility.org
