Kielkropf - "Ignorance Is Bliss" (2018)
For fans of: Crowbar , Eyes Hate God , Pro-Pain
In European folklore, the Kielkropf is a changed child, that is, it is the offspring of a legendary creature - usually fairies or trolls - that was left secretly in exchange for a human child. In the metal world, the name refers to this Austrian quartet who has just released his second work. In "Ignorance Is Bliss", Jerry (vocals), RF (guitar), Andi (bass) and Schmidi (drums) continue to make the soundtrack for those who have given up hope, no longer want to fight and who only has to wait for death . That is, that Sludge Metal urgent, desperate, as if he were fighting a battle against his own inner demons.
If I look at six strings, what you hear is a wall of riffs there Crowbar - for me, the great reference of the above-mentioned genre -, the voice, in turn, heads towards the Thrash Crossover, so that to understand what is being sung becomes a virtually impossible task - but until then the Neves died, because I also do not understand a single word of what Chris Barnes says and I continue to adore the 1988-1995 Cannibal Corpse. There being no words of power or minutes of wisdom behind the sonorous atrocity, simply bang as if there were no tomorrow. If there is content worthy of reflection, nevertheless, you prefer to bang. If you are a rambler, go listen to U2.
