Kalter/Spiritual Angel/Maple Metal Records/2012 CD Re-IssueReview


  Kalter  are  a band  from  Quebec  City,  Canada  that  plays  a  very  symphonic  form  of  melodic  black/death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2010  album  "Spiritual  Angel"  which  was  released  by  Maple  Metal  Records  in  2012.

  Drums  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  playing  with  not  much  in  the  way  of  fast  drumming  or  blast  beats,  while  the  keyboards  have  a  very  atmospheric  and  symphonic  sound  to  them  with  some  progressive  rock  elements,  as  for t he  bass  playing  it  has  a  very strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  riffs  that  combine  melodic  black  metal,  death  and  traditional  metal  together  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  and  progressive  sounding  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads,  as  for the  acoustic  guitars  when  they  are  utilized  they  use  finger  picking  and  full  chords  to  add  another  dark  dimension  to  the  music.

  Vocals  range from  high  pitched  screams,  deep  growls  and  clean  singing  male  and  female  vocals,  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark  themes,  as  for the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy  and  professional  sound  where  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

  In  my  opinion  Kalter  are  a  very  great  sounding  symphonic  melodic  black/death  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a f an  of t his  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Darker  By  The  Day"  "From  Now  To  Eternity"  and  "Spiritual Angel".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
