The fury has been building for years. The exciting sounds of black metal’s newest son slowly nurturing its molten, raw metallic bite. Their two recordings for Italian label Avantgarde Music have found their way to the hands of the curious ears that could not resist the power. Now,
finally, in 2006 the world braces for its official introduction to Norway’s Keep of Kalessin. Armada, the latest chronicle from the black metal militia, is an explosive recording that lives up to its high expectations. Founded by guitarist Obsidian C (Satyricon), the album celebrates over two years of work and already is finding much acclaim. A video for album track “Into the Fire” will be completed in March, prior to the worldwide album release and the band already are a confirmed performer for the annual Infero Festival. Formed in 1994, Keep of Kalessin have been an underground sensation that has found early mainstream metal interest. Their 2004 ep, Reclaim, featured 1349/Satyricon drummer Frost and Mayhem vocalist Attila Csihar - recruitments that triggered even further interest in the band. Now with a solid line-up, also featuring vocalist Thebon, bassist Wizziac
and drummer Vyl, Keep of Kalessin at long last find themselves upon the world stage - and all eyes and ears await their arrival.
