"While they still retain some black metal tendencies, their music mixes avant-garde, classic rock, progressive metal and progressive rock with everything from black, to death, to clean vocals to create a style that sounds like no one else. Kekals last album, 1000 Thoughts Of Violence, was easily their best release yet. And this new album, Acidity, while maybe not being quite as aggressive as a whole, perfectly matches the brilliance of 1000 Thoughts while maybe even surpassing it (I've still not made up my mind on that point). Kekal continues to impress with their fine musicianship and creative song writing." -The Whipping Post

This is one of the best and most consistent CDs I have ever heard! I now have all the available Kekal CDs and they all rock, but this is definately the most creative and the most masterful! Buy it if you are a fan of Opeth (different sound but same eclectic concept), Between the Buried and Me and melodic black metal. This is also probably less black metal than their previous work, but it's incredibly melodic and catchy while still being both heavy and metal. Take it from a guy who has been a metal fan since 1991: this one is worth any money! This is also the last "metallic" album from kekal. Two years later, they will depart into a totally new area of musical creativity on "Habit of Fire". One of the most creative, weird and talented bands in heavy music ever.

I've heard a little bit of music from these guys, and I can say positively that, they have evolved into a rather unique sound. Great band!!!

This band is all over the place. Kekal started out as mainly a black metal band but on their last couple of albums have branched into many different styles. I even think I heard ambient and hip-hop moments. Give it up to these guys to be creative and yet stay extreme. Be brave and give these guys a try if your into power, death, black, or metalcore.
