CD acheté après avoir plongé seulement une petite dizaine de minutes dans cet album.
Excellent Prog BM sur lequel planent les ombres d'autres pontes du genre et d'autres. J'y retrouve du Opeth, du Rebirth of Nefast, du Apocalypcicist... Après un tel sans faute, comment ces deux maniacs pourront-ils bien aborder l'écriture d'un nouvel opus ?
Favorite track: Neurodelirium.
KALEIKR was born in Reykjavík, Iceland in early 2016 in order to create progressive and experimental music straight from the heart. Emerging from the ashes of promising black metal group DRAUGSÓL, KALEIKR make the absurdity of human experience palpable through a next-level synthesis of melancholy, intricacy and aggression.
‘Heart Of Lead’ is a phenomenal debut album. Structured as a journey from sadness through despair to total mental collapse, the album begins at a sunrise coloured with the reflective purity of viola, gradually becoming darker and stranger with each following song as it builds towards a never-ending sunset.
KALEIKR use the riff-complexity and clarity of progressive Death Metal, sparing bursts of emotive Black Metal dissonance, forlorn Hellenic leads and section transitions worthy of prime OPETH or ENSLAVED - all coated in a translucent layer of preternatural psychedelia - to augment lyrical themes of self-contradiction, despondency and delirium.
‘Heart of Lead’ possesses the depth of feeling present in the finest Icelandic black metal; that particular sense of the saudade, a longing for something missing, absent and just out of reach.
One of the best death metal albums I've ever heard. This LP combines elements of old school death metal with prog and experimental metal to create a truly unique sound. There is a noticable level of technicality in the composition, however not to a degree that detracts from the melody of the sound. The attack is consistent in it's brutality, but isn't in a mind numbing, grindy sprint and has no qualms with lowering the pace while maintaining aggression. This is album needs to be on your radar. camelhouse7
New Zealand technical death outfit Ulcerate have often been praised for their innovative genre approach—but six albums into their discography, there's even greater strength in their consistency. Bandcamp Album of the Day Dec 20, 2016
