12" Heart Of Lead #67698
Release Date: February 15, 2019
Gatefold LP (black vinyl)
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.
