Klogr - 'Make Your Stand' EP Review






Italian Alternative metal quartet Klogr return with follow up to their album, 'Black Snow' with new EP, 'Make Your Stand'..

The EP kicks off with, 'Breaking Down' which hits hard from the off with it's thrash inspired instruments, interesting dynamic time signatures and Rusty's varied powerful vocals, which are both demanding and melodic. Rusty's vocals perfectly compliment the changeable flow of the complex structure of emotions exhibited through the instruments, which are well executed and demonstrate the bands collective talent and unity!

Next we have the title track, 'Make Your Stand' which features endless intelligible and bouncy guitar work keeping things energetic and memorable. Rusty again shows off his vocal capabilities, going from stand out clean melodic to fierce growls, which adds extra depth and emphasis. To see us out we are graced with more impressive guitar work accompanied by mean grunts and pounding drums, all making for a very catchy title track, which could well be a fan favourite!

To bring the EP to a close is, 'Breathing Heart' which shows off their softer side in this powerhouse ballad, which still packs a punch with it's progressive elements, strong riffs and sinister yet pleasing melodies and sounds! Not to mention one hell of a guitar solo, which you come to expect from guitarist, PQ with the aid of Rusty as back up, he is quite the guitar virtuoso! This last song is the most surprising, and in my opinion is the stand out song of the bunch, showing more emotion, diversity and maturity.

This is a striking EP, fuelled by excitement, creativity, passion and sheer talent! They have a brilliant fresh inspired sound which combines alt rock, metal, thrash and progressive elements, making them a innovative force to be reckoned with! This EP will certainly satisfy existing fans, and is bound to expand their presence and new followers also!
