K.L.L.K are a band from France that has been featured before in this zine and plays an atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 ep "Le Brasier des Mondes" which was released by Caligari Records.
Field recordings start off the ep along with some ambient style synths a few seconds later as well as some drones and after the intro the music goes into more of a heavier and melodic musical direction as well as adding in some death metal growls and black metal screams and a few of the tracks are also very long and epic in length.
At times the music gets very atmospheric along with the elements from the intro also being mixed into the heavier sections of the songs and there is also a brief use of angry shouts and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard along with the tremolo picking also giving the songs a more raw black metal feeling.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very distorted yet melodic fashion while some of the slower riffs add in a touch of doom metal and as the ep progresses the music starts getting more experimental and avant garde along with a brief use of spoken word samples and melodic chanting and some songs also bring in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and there are also a couple of instrumentals.
K.K.L.K creates another recording that is also in the experimental and atmospheric style of black metal with this ep, the production sounds very dark and r aw while the lyrics cover Indo Europeanism, Celtic Rituals, Comologies the writings of Julius Evola and Mithraism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from K.K.L.K and if you are a fan of experimental and atmospheric black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Le Souffle Primordial" "L'eveil du Ble D'or" and "Le Braiser des Mondes". 8 out of 10.
