Kingcrow premiere new video for Father with Prog


Italian proggers Kingcrow have premiered their new video for Father with Prog.

The track is taken from the band's seventh studio album, The Persistence, which will be released on Sensory Records on September 7.

“This is a song that was written very quickly," guitarist Diego Cafolla tells Prog. "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.”

The Persistence is Kingcrow's first album since the completion of their "life" trilogy of albums, namely Phlegothon (2010), In Crescendo (2013) and Eidos (2015). It features a guest appearance from Pain Of Salvation's Daniel Gildenlow on the track Night's Descending.
