I watched the video – Kehlvin new Blockbuster 😆 – only to see if the dude at the end smash off his guitars to the rocks. He didn’t and honestly I was quite disappointed. 😆 😆 😆 Fun, but talking seriously, not such a great way to promote a new band nowadays if you want to be taken seriously by fans and the industry.
Formed back in early 1999 by five friends in La Chaux-de- Fonds, Switzerland, Kehlvin is delivering a slow grinding and Doom inspired, contorted and gloomy Metalcore with blending of both post-Hardcore and post-Rock/Metal elements. After the release of their first acclaimed album, “The Mountain Daylight Time” on Division Records and some shows across Europe with the likes of Burst, Will Haven, Mono, Red Sparowes, Knut and Unsane, the members of Kehlvin have collaborated with their friends from Rorcal in order to record a split album called “Ascension.”
It consists of one song of 30 minutes with the two bands playing simultaneously, written and recorded in 4 days. Since this monolithic masterpiece, the band has recorded an EP called “Holy Cancer”, which was released with a live DVD. In order to promote this piece of savage aggression Kehlvin has toured across Europe with the bands Celeste and Junius.
Their second full length entitled “The Orchard of Forking Paths”, consist of 8 tracks will rip your head off and tread you into the ground. Disturbing and grinding, Kehlvin find their own – sick – way of making Metal more edgy and dark, building up their own style and future sound.
