Keep Of Kalessin : Kolossus,альбом, рецезия, трек-лист, mp3, тексты песен. I became a fan of Keep of Kalessin when my friend lent my a copy of 2006’s ‘Armada’, their previous album to this. They had a solid sound in comparison with many black metal bands that seem to enjoy recording their albums in a cave or something. Raw black metal is good, but there’s differences between sounding necro and sounding just plain bad. Thankfully, KoK possess a thicker sound, each note can be clearly heard, and the band possess a formidable album in ‘Kolossos’, their latest outing.

Kolossus is Keep of Kalessin's fourth studio album. It was released on June 6, 2008, in Europe and on June 10 in the . A music video for the song Ascendant was made.

Even though I believe that Vyl is one of the more talented drummers in the extreme metal scene these days, he definitely overplays on this album. The technical abilities that he displays here simply demonstrate the rather sizable gap between him and the rest of the band members in terms of talent, causing the band as a whole to suffer greatly. There are passages where he simply decides to play blast beats over the rest of the band for minutes on end, which is definitely obnoxious.

Keep Of Kalessin was formed in 1995 and has throughout the years only released 4 studio albums and 1 EP due to personal disputes and a very bumpy road for found. er and songwriter Obsidian C. But with the release of "Armada" in 2006 the band took the much deserved step into the ranks of the top metal bands from Norway. The album "Kolossus" was released in May 2008 and the band was touring extensively for a couple of years including support for Dimmu Borgir and Behemoth on their US tour in 2008.

This is actually Keep Of Kalessin’s fourth album, but they didn’t really hit it big until their third release Armada surfaced. The name Keep Of Kalessin is taken from Ursula Le Guin’s Earthsea books, where the arch-dragon and bearer of the Earthsea world is called Kalessin. They formed in 1994 under the name Ildskjær, but quickly changed their name into Keep Of Kalessin. Their Epic Extreme Metal is very much present on Kolossus. There are also instruments on this album that you don’t usually hear on a Black Metal album, like the keyboard lying in the background of the most extreme parts on most of the songs, or the massive piano mid-part on The Rising Sign along with what sounds like a violin. Taking that part into an extreme Black Metal part where you can find the insane double kick drum play, courtesy of Vyl, really pushes the boundaries for the epic parts of this record.

This is a really good album, but it suffers from the same thing as Emperor's Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk - namely, it's a revisitation of an album the band in question had already made, albeit in a slightly more refined and mature presentation. Emperor's Anthems was very much In the Nightside Eclipse v., and in the same way, this one is very much Armada v.
