Keep of Kalessin

One of a seemingly bottomless well of Norwegian metal bands, Keep Of Kalessin was formed in 1994, initially as Ildsjaer, and released two commendable old-school black metal albums in the late nineties. Agnen, the latter of those two albums, is pretty typical black metal fare, guitars and drums racing along with the standard vocal style intact. Certainly far from bad, but perhaps lacking a truely unique identity. The original lineup broke up in 2000, but leader Obsidian C was determined not to quit. He joined Satyricon as a touring guitarist, and in doing so was able to recruit legendary Satyricon drummer Frost to join a new version of KOK. Not only that, another big name in the black metal scene, Attila Csihar agreed to become the vocalist. This new all-star trio released an MCD, Reclaim, in 2003. Neither Frost nor Csihar are still in the band, but they continue, released Armada in 2006.
