Well this band have the distinction of having both a ridiculous name, and a pathetic album cover. I won't lie, I put off listening to this for a little while, as I had far more appealing releases for review. Eventually I got around to listening to this, and I can safely say I won't be listening to this again after reviewing it.

Klynt basically sound like Iced Earth, which in itself isn't a bad thing at all. Unfortunately their singer is fairly poor, and it has a catastrophic effect on the music which was average to begin with. He sounds a little like the singer out of Dark At Dawn – if he had a throat infection. It would be unfair to say this was completely without merit though, as there are some cool riffs here and there. However this isn't nearly enough to keep my attention and this album afloat amidst the sea of other bands playing this style.

I should also mention that "Hell is Home" has some vocal lines that are dangerously close to that of Judas Priest's "Between the Hammer and the Anvil". So close that at first I actually thought it was some sort of shoddy cover. There isn't much in the way of standouts here as the album is all of a particularly meandering quality. Overall there isn't a lot left to say, this is fairly sub-par and I can't really recommend Of Klynt and Man to anyone.
