Camel A surprisingly good release of blackened prog DM that will surprise you and keep you enthralled. Mutatis Mutandis is a strange and powerful LP that will leave you hungry for more. Favorite track: Of Being.

Colin M. Heavy of atmosphere and of riff. A sludgy, blackened miasma that carves out a bleak niche of its own. Favorite track: Utopia Planitia.

Ippocalyptica It is not as if the atmospheric sludge / post-black metal sub-genre is bursting at the seams with entries, but 2020 has seen its fair share of excellent albums in this style, and KEVEL have just taken the crown with Mutatis Mutandis. This boils down to KEVEL being as heavy, crushing, and hypnotic as their peers, but with a more kinetic and riff-forward approach that gives Mutatis Mutandis so much more depth and replay value. Greece strikes again, and this one is a real contender in 2020! Favorite track: Arecibo.

Terraforming 11:20
Creation through destruction Progress through assimilation Irrelevance of life We're dominators of the Terra Re-animators of sould long lost We're dominators of the Terra Creation through destruction Progress through assimilation Irrelevance of life We're dominators of the Terra We're salvagers of planetary tombs We're dominators of the Terra Vampires of resources Vampires of all that is energy Vampire of resources Harvesters of our ingenuity Survival through expansion Ignoring Shaping our fates by action Erasing any obstruction

You will never be alone Because you'll never be whole Divine reality Will bend Though negations Transcend Outer searching Look inside Aware of nothing Deaf and blind Acquisition Of blank mind Aware of nothing Space inside

Arecibo 07:08
Ones. Zeros. Paint. Existence On canvas of silence Solar appraiser ignores Inequitable. Inequitable auction On display for millennia Uncalled for Humbled Arecibo Fake bidders Crop circles deride us Clueless Arecibo Light years away Light years unclaimed The hammer never falls Inequitable auction Collusion of the hosts Inequitable auction
5.
Apex of the triangle So perfectly set Designed collision On course The sign of infinity On a black ball awaits Cosmic domination Concealment of fates Puppets act on ignorance The hits serve the plan Chaos unravels. All staged The sign of infinity On a black ball awaits Cosmic domination The cue of the fates
6.
Dry. Isolated In a desert where each grain of sand flies Light years. Away Kept on stargazing High. Fixated that someone stares back One way mirror Utopia Planitia

___________________

Located in Athens, Greece, KEVEL create unconventional yet coherent sonic boulders, extending away from the specific rules and stylistic barriers of the many metal sub-genres. If the 2014 self-released debut of “Hz of the Unheard” was mainly an instrumental album of progressive sludge, “Mutatis Mutandis” explores other musical paths, combining black metal, post-metal, progressive elements and spacey soundscapes, for the first time also adding vocals and synths to the band's formula.

KEVEL's music embraces the listeners with deep, enveloping atmospheres; then it slowly crushes them by inducing a dark and deadly trance thanks to stratified sounds and hypnotic, cold melodies. All the songs are geometrically built on the perfect interlocking of ultra-heavy riffs, hammering rhythms and oppressing vocals that create majestic mantras of desolation, alienation and pain. The pain of living in a vast, indifferent and inhospitable universe, without a purpose or a reason to be.

Mastered by James Plotkin and magnificently illustrated by Kuba Sokolski, “Mutatis Mutandis” pushes KEVEL to an uncanny cosmic journey, spewing growls of reason and madness. From fission to fusion, from humble beginnings to interplanetary domains, from birth to death. Trying to answer the question of what it means to exist and whether, if given the chance, humanity will be able to dominate everything across its path, while still not knowing what it really is.

A life of body eternal, an eternal death of the mind.
