Biography

Rome, Italy (1996 – present)

The following details are straight from the Intromental website and made need further editing.


BIOGRAPHY

The band was originally founded in Rome, Italy, by Diego Cafolla (guitars) and Manuel Thundra Cafolla (drums) in 1996 under the name of “Earth Shaker”. Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s poem “Raven” and driven by a will of change, the band’s name was soon altered into Kingcrow. Together with Stefano Tissi (vocals), the first promo CD Eyes Of Memories was published in 1997. The second promo CD, Hurricane’s Eye, was released in 2000, and served as the proof of Kingcrow’s evolution into progressive atmospheres performed with a subtle hard rock and metal approach. This stylistic choice was finally consolidated in 2001 with the first official studio album, Something Unknown. In the same year Ivan Nastasi, a guitarist of the classic hard rock / heavy metal style, joined the band. In 2002 Stefano was replaced by Mauro Gelsomini (vocals), who contributed to the songs with his deep and emphatic approach. In June 2003 Kingcrow recorded a 3-track promo CD entitled Matzmariels. Ready for the next step, Kingcrow decided that the next release should be a conceptual album, and thus Insider became reality. Kingcrow noted, “We see this album as a continuous flow of emotions narrated by music”.

During 2004 and 2005, Kingcrow built their own recording studio in Rome. A new album, Timetropia, (heralded by media and fans as a true rock opera along the lines of Tommy, “Jesus Christ Superstar” or even Operation Mindcrime), was recorded and published worldwide by Lucretia Records International.
