Krallice are a band from New York that has been featured before in this zine and plays a technical and avant garde style of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Ygg Huur" which was released by Avantgarde Music.
A very dark and melodic sound starts off the album and after a few seconds blast beats and grim black metal screams start becoming a huge part of the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the faster sections being in more of a raw black metal direction.
Elements of post metal can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and most of the tracks are long and epic in length and the riffs also get very technical at times and also adds a touch of avant garde to the bands musical style and all of the tracks also remain true to a heavy musical style.
Krallice creates an album that is still in a black metal direction while also getting a lot more technical over the years and they manage to avoid the cascadian style that was present on earlier recordings, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover Esoteric themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Krallice and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wastes of ocean" and "Bitter meditation". 8 out of 10.
