Review


The only other Wyrd album I have is their debut album Heathen from 2001, and so I have missed the progress of this band since then. Heathen was an album with one 51-minute track that ran the gamut from ambient neo-folk to Black Metal and back again, so it comes as no shock that Kalivagi is essentially the same, only not as good.

There are six tracks here, but they all sound more or less alike, with little to make them into individual efforts. There is much more of a post-metal sound at work here, with that dry, scooped guitar sound that has come to exemplify the genre. I think a lot of the heavier guitar parts on here are pretty good, and would sound even better with a real recording job, but the keyboardy folk melodies are just kind of lame, with a very Mr. Casio sound that makes them sound amateurish rather than primitive. The melodies themselves are repetitive and not that interesting, and after many spins I find this album more irritating than involving. A disappointing album.

  1. Verisurma
