Kehlvin – Orchard of Forking Paths

Top-notch post metal that feels a lot like Callisto’s True Nature Unfolds (I’m still waiting for ANY band, Isis excepted, to write a song that encapsulates post-metal as perfectly as Callisto’s Blackhole).

A nice alternative to the many darker sludge-based offerings that have carried the genre’s flag for the past few years. The massive natural force of OoFP’s slow rhythms is leveraged for passages that feel positively inspiring. And sometimes releases to peaceful moments. The structural iteration of the songs is addictive and hypnotic in exactly the right way.

If you want to feel like you were transported back to 2004, the golden age of the genre, pick this up!
