As Sensory Records prepares for the release of The Persistence, the new LP from Italian prog outfit KINGCROW, the band has issued the album’s first video single. The video for the song “Father” has been premiered through an exclusive at PROG Magazine as the band prepares to begin their European tour supporting Pain Of Salvation this week.
The video for “Father” was filmed by Devilnax, directed by Devilnax and KINGCROW’s Diego Cafolla, With the premiere of the new song, Cafolla offers, “This is a song that was written very quickly. I had the whole first part written with just a basic drum machine loop and Thundra came up with that hypnotic drums pattern, which I liked a lot. It’s a pretty dark song and the only one we already played live in a show in Rome and it worked beautifully. I think it shows very well our interest in both trip hop atmospheres and heavy stuff and I like that a lot of things happen in less than five minutes, from the atmospheric first part to the heavy, proggy ending.”

KINGCROW’s upcoming third album for Sensory Records, The Persistence closes a three-year gap since their acclaimed Eidos album. Describing KINGCROW today is quite a difficult task, but one could state that the influence of different kinds of music; progressive rock, alternative rock, ambient music, metal, and more are all present in the band’s songs. With each release, they take a step further away from their original roots and is regarded today as one of the most exciting bands that Italy has to offer. Recorded at Sound Under Pressure, The Persistence was produced by KINGCROW’s Diego and Thundra Cafolla, mixed by Giampiero Ulacco, and completed with the photography and design of Devilnax, all the same as the album’s predecessor. Fans of Steven Wilson, Riverside, and Dream Theater, this is required listening.
