The Mystery of Kły

Who are Kły? A trio, apparently, but no one knows for certain, or at least that’s what they claim. They are signed to Pagan Records, that’s a part of the story we can confirm.

Kły were established in 1997, and yet this mysterious band only released their first demo last year, and it went by title Taran-Gai. Their first full length release, Szczerzenie, was recorded at the turn of 2017/18 with Nihil (Furia, Morowe etc.) handling production and mixing duties at Czyściec studio in Poland.

Szczerzenie is available on CD, digitally and as a digipack.  It features f six tracks that are difficult to categorise under one genre. At the roots of the album lies melancholic Burzum-like black metal richly interwoven with different sounds. The band themselves compared those different sounds to the music of Hypothermia, Lifelover, Austere, Grey Waters or even the early works of Ulver, Unholy, Katatonia or Anathema.

However, Kły claim a broad spectrum of musical influences, and aside from black metal, nature and shamanism are held as totems towards their driving force. If that sounds your cup of herbal tea with a dash of arsenic, check out Szczerzenie through the Pagan Records label.
