Norwegian Extreme Metal pioneers Keep of Kalessin have crafted new album Katharsis which captures diverse influences while staying extreme. The album arrives on March 24th, 2023 and will be available as a Limited Edition Grey and Black splatter Double Album, jewelcase CD, and cassette.
The band see the album as the beginning of a new era after facing many lineup challenges. The new lineup created the upcoming album together with a goal of appealing to fans of “the entire spectrum of the Metal genre.” Band members include Arnt Obsidian on vocals, longtime bass player Wizziac and YouTube-notorious drummer Wanja “Nechtan” Groeger.
As an album, Katharsis is:
…A life journey explained, battling both outside challenges and inner emotions. All this set in epic otherworldly surroundings. It is the rebirth. The resurrection. The purgation. The battle of leaving the old and embracing the new. It is the musical embodiment of you against you!
