We could review Kal-El‘s new album, Dark Majesty, in the usual manner (brief history of the band, breaking down the songs, comparisons to bands that came before them etc etc) but there would be very little point in doing so.
Kal-El play stoner / doom so you know what to expect and as a genre, much like the majority of black metal, there’s precious few ‘new things’ to say.
Suffice to say, Dark Majesty soars into the stratosphere on the back of planet-shaking grooves, spacey vibes and universe-sized riffs.
So far, so predictable.
However, when it comes to Kal-El, this band ‘do’ stoner/doom better than virtually everyone else. So, go lose yourself in Dark Majesty‘s heaviness and revel in the power of the almighty riff.
Kal-El have made it easy for you.
Just hit play.
Kal-El are fast becoming the preeminent stoner band on the planet. Don’t sleep on them now. 9/10
Kal-El‘s Dark Majesty was released on 27th August, 2021 via Majestic Mountain Records.
