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 the 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 fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Darker By The Day" "From Now To Eternity" and "Spiritual Angel". RECOMMENDED BUY.
