Kevel are a band from Greece that plays an instrumental mixture of sludge, progressive and post metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Hz Of The Unheard".
A very dark, melodic and heavy sound starts off the album along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and a good portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and also remain true to a slow or mid paced musical direction while also bringing in a great amount of melody.
One of the songs brings in a small amount of spoken word samples and the songs bring in the heaviness of sludge metal while also having the melody of post metal and the instrument skills of progressive rock and you can also hear quite of a bit of an improv feeling or jam session atmosphere throughout all of the tracks and a couple of the later songs also brings in a brief use of blast beats, clean playing and melodic guitar leads.
Kevel plays an instrumental style that is mostly rooted in the more melodic side of sludge metal but they also mix in a quite a bit of post and progressive metal to create a musical style of their own and the production also sounds very powerful for being a self released recording.
In my opinion Kevel are a very great sounding mixture of sludge, post and progressive metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Siphon Of Sin" and "Hz Of The Unheard". 8 out of 10.
