Eidos, the anxiously awaited sixth studio album from Rome, Italy-based progressive metal champions, KINGCROW, is out today, a priority title for Sensory Records. In celebration of the album’s official release date, the grand, explosive album is now playing in its entirety through a stream at Heavy Blog Is Heavy.
KINGCROW‘s Eidos is a colossal, conceptual album which sees the sextet exploring new territories and pushing the band’s sound to more ill-omened realms. Boasting over an hour of material which closes the path-of-life saga of their prior two albums — Phlegethon dealing with childhood, and In Crescendo about the end of youth — Eidos carries a more foreboding, ominous edge than KINGCROW‘s prior releases, enhanced in part by guest saxophone provided by Stefania Bentivoglio and piano by Fred Colombo of Spheric Universe Experience. 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. In commemoration of its official release, Heavy Blog Is Heavy champions Eidos with a full stream of the album.
