Quebec melodic death metallers KÄLTER, may be Canada’s Best Kept Secret !
This quintet draws from the influences of Scandinavian metal bands like Children Of Bodom, incorporating melodic power riffs, folkloric elements, strong use of keys, and the same style of harsh vocals as their peers.
The music on 'Spiritual Angel' depict Nordic mastery, whether powerful orchestrations like Dimmu Borgir, or heavy use of keyboards, like the splendid synthesizer solos in "Darker By the Day" or "For the Last Time", worthy of Stratovarius.
'Spiritual Angel' is filled with beautiful arrangements ranging from magical guitar solos, brilliant lead keyboard work, progressive inventive drumming, and a stunning and epic vocal performance from UNEXPECT's female singer 'Leilindel' on "Time Out of Mind."
'Spiritual Angel' was recorded in late 2009 at Badass Studio (Neuraxis, Augury, Blackguard, Unexpect) in Montreal, QC and was produced by Jef Fortin and KÄLTER.
Add to that a beautifully designed 12 page booklet, with lyrics, band photos, and album cover artwork by Nicolas Francoeur. (Nordheim)
Get your hands on this epic masterpiece if you like bands like Children Of Bodom, Dimmu Borgir, Kalmah, Wintersun, or Norther. This album is definitely for you !
‘Spiritual Angel’ is full of addictive choruses, catchy vocals, and downright jaw-dropping guitars !
