Klehma / Press

“Old school melodic metallers Klehma last year released their self-titled debut EP, and whilst you might be forgiven for presuming that a band who cite such an eclectic spectrum of influences might just end up sounding like an directionless non-entity, I’m glad to report that this is certainly not the case with the US’ Klehma. Instrumental opener Dead Hand sets the mood pretty comprehensively with riffs peppered with old-school, Maiden-esque harmonies and melodic lines, perfectly complemented with occasional doses of vertebrae-obliterating crunch. Vocals are introduced with Into The Abyss, and could be fairly accurately described as the three-way sonic lovechild of Mikael Akerfeldt, Johann Hegg and Lars Petrov, and they sit beautifully over the slightly more ‘classic’ metal-flavoured guitar work – indeed, the riff leading into the last third of the songs can only be described as immense.

“Klehma (Klee-muh) remember that name. I get a feeling that we will be hearing a lot more of these guys in the future. The guitar play that both Jesse (guitar) and Johnny (guitar/vocals) put on is simply amazing. Klehma just started playing at venues this year, and all I can say is, its about time you started. The years that these guys have played shows in their music. I was so captivated in watching the guitars doing battle, I realized I was not taking pics. That is how mesmerizing this group of guys can be. So I say again, remember the name Klehma.”
