Into The Voight This is amazingly crafted music, ranging from all kinds of genres.

This actually would deserve much more attention than Lifelover, IMO. Favorite track: Eld.

coryjk Heartbreaking, dark, and brooding. I'm so upset I slept on this album when it came out, having only checked out a song or two. This is the kind of album you lie in bed and blast when you feel absolutely defeated and need to let it all out. The painful wailing of black metal, with distant and atmospheric twists of post-metal, with saxophone weaved into the very DNA of the album. Post-Black Metal at its finest. Favorite track: Fall.

Obstacle of Affliction This is superb black 'n' roll with the finace of jazz and a jam band feel. The result is a unique and enjoyable musical journey Favorite track: Fukta din Aska.

about

Kall - "the Velvet Underground of black 'n' roll" according to Cvlt Nation - have come a long way. It has been six years since the successors of depressive black metal pioneers Lifelover released their self-titled debut, and while the ghost of their former band floats above three of the members, their second full-length "Brand" is a paean to self-empowerment and rigorous individualism.

"We are basically still dealing with past abuse and angst," the group states, β€œonly in a more constructive way with the same sincerity." The raw-sounding, yet refined compositions mirror the emotional purity their creators wanted to maintain. The title "Brand" ("fire") refers to the song 'Eld' as a tale about a violently cathartic experience at a forest fire, making the primordial power of nature a recurring theme.

In this sense, the album is a call to overcome suffering by facing it right on, using the idioms of Scandinavian black metal, shoe-gazing post rock, saxophone-fueled psychedelia and the saddest of pop to get the message across. Break the shackles of society and let go of any preconceived notions while keeping in mind that you are not special, find your purpose in life to be as free as you possibly can.

Or - to use the Swedes' own plain words: "Kall, like Lifelover, shows its collective middle-finger to any scenes. The more they conform, the more we will set ourselves apart from them …"

"Brand" is available as Digipak CD, gatefold double LP with etching (black, limited neon orange transparent).
