Italian prog rock/metal outfit KINGCROW has issued a new single from their impending new album, The Persistence, set for early September release through Sensory Records. The new track, “Night’s Descending,” features a guest vocal performance by Pain Of Salvation’s vocalist Daniel Gildenlow. This is a extra special pairing as KINGCROW will tour across Europe supporting Pain Of Salvation in conjunction with the release of The Persistence.
Offers KINGCROW‘s Diego Cafolla with the new single, “‘Night’s Descending’ holds a special place in my heart for personal reasons and I love the sense of drama that permeates the song. As soon as I wrote the vocal melody I thought that it sounded perfect for the voice of Daniel Gildenlow from Pain Of Salvation. I talked with our singer Diego Marchesi about the idea and when he heard the song he totally agreed with me, so I contacted Daniel telling him I wrote a song that I thought it was perfect for his singing. Luckily Daniel liked the song quite a bit and told me he was going to making it. When we heard Daniel singing on ‘Night’s Descending’ for the first time I was impressed by his incredibly emotional performance and I thought we definitely made right choice.”

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.
