4 stars You may call it hip, trendy, state-of-the-art maybe. We do have a lot of bands underway currently which are blending prog metal, alternative and heavy art rock with differing intention. Particularly hailing from Italy. Some of them have recorded mediocre albums, some have failed more or less going this way, KINGCROW though convince me with their new rounded production. I mean, they actually are able to trigger great delight. More than ever it depends on the song writing skills of course. Guitarist Diego Cafolla turns out to be the main composer, he wrote about 3 hours of music in total, finally ending up into 'The Persistence'. Hereby the approach was 'to step a bit outside of our comfort zone and refresh our sound'.

Well, I'm sure this is not meant to assign the past albums with any negative hint. In some way this is just another comfort zone I would say. What exactly convinces? They are providing melodic heavy rock songs which are appealing. Everybody and everything is running on the right track here. The production is simply flawless. And, no filler, they are keeping up the high level from the first to the last minute. Be it the smart ballad Night's Descending or the wonderful masterpieces Closer and Father. That sums it all up to something extraordinary. Great album featuring hints of Porcupine Tree, Soul Doubt, Opeth, Pain Of Salvation.

Rivertree | 4/5 |
