During last spring’s European Tour with Prong, Italian alt-metal band KLOGR had goPRO cameras on stage, in addition to having the band’s official photographer, Nico Cagarelli, film their shows backstage and on-the-road. The resulting footage will end up on a live/documentary DVD, to be released next year! Watch a teaser here for an upcoming full concert “Live in Hamburg” to be released next week in support of the upcoming DVD:
That’s not all – KLOGR have more news in store for their diehard fans, which will be announced later this year.
For now, you can enjoy an amazing preview of what’s to come via KLOGR’s new video for ‘Failing Crowns’, one of the most appreciated tracks off of the band’s latest release, Black Snow. Watch the video, directed by KLOGR frontman Gabriele “Rusty” Rustichelli, bassist Joba, and photographer Nico Cagarelli, here:
Although it’s not the most straight-to-the-point track, it is one of the more representative songs of the band, with its progressive groove and smacking riffs. The ‘Failing Crowns’ single is available digitally via iTunes as part of a special package, including the original album version, a live version recorded in Hamburg, and a live version of the track ‘Draw Closer’, also recorded in Hamburg.

See what the press is saying about KLOGR:
“KLOGR has poured out their hearts on this effort, with a mix of raw rage, and melancholic, beautiful melodies. Their message is to promote awareness of the destructions of the world through our own hands, and demanding that we all pitch in and do something about it… This is definitely not an album you want to spend your summer without.” – MOUTH4MUSIC
“An alternative hybrid that draws from its roots with integrity and innovation” – TERRORIZER
“’Black Snow’ shows off an arty flair with the depth of lyrical output marrying abstract to real life emotion. It’s both heavy and chunky with moments of refinement and will please most fans of in-your-face, dark and moody Metal.” – METAL TALK
“…hearing the advancement between …Decay and Black Snow suggests KLOGR really know where they’re headed.” – SEA OF TRANQUILITY
“KLOGR have delivered a thought provoking body of work that has been cast and influenced from the ash ridden, suffocating polluted planet we call Earth.” – METAL-TEMPLE
“These guys had us at ‘Italian alt-prog metal band to release environmental awareness concept album.” – DETROIT METRO TIMES
“KLOGR: a band that has made the decisive breakthrough. Black Snow, the turning point album.” – ROCK HARD
“KLOGR is definitely a metal act that is going to win over metal fans new and old.” – SHAKEFIRE
KLOGR is a massive force to be reckoned with. Recognized around the globe for melding their heavy alternative and progressive influences, the band captivates fans with a fresh sound currently missing from the metal world. An immense anathema against the destructive acts operated by human kind, the band’s new album Black Snow delivers colossal tunes supported by flawless production. The album is a powerful work of raw rage— reaching towering and aggressive points while leaving room for beautiful, charismatic melodies and hypnotic atmospheres. The lyrics on Black Snow are about a broken world where a prompt reaction is mandatory and there’s no room for hesitation, faking or excuses.
