KINGCROW – Eidos Artwork Revealed
April 28, 2015, 5 years ago
As Laser's Edge division, Sensory Records, prepares to release Kingcrow's sixth full-length studio recording, Eidos, the album's cover artwork, track listing and additional details have been revealed.
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.
Sensory Records, who also released Kingcrow's In Crescendo album, will unveil Eidos worldwide on June 23. Music from the album and new tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.
