Krakel – ‘999, No Luck’   1 comment

Launched on November 6th, 2020, Swedish rock/metal band Krakel announce their new 2 track single, ‘999, No Luck’. Available online.

‘999’ is a very dark track, featuring text from Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’, with the greatest focus on the Witches sections.

‘No Luck’ is a track about gambling addiction. With these 2 latest songs, Krakel have attempted to up the heaviness factor.

A female fronted set-up, Krakel’s sound combines light and heaviness, with a strong melody and equally powerful lyrics, performed in a full-bodied, hard-rock delivery.

The band have been well received, around the world, by the rock press and have already amassed quite a following, internationally.

999 – Very space-rock, sci-fi intro, gradually emerging, into a powerful sound, featuring strong power screams. Enthusiastic sinister witchy vocals, from ‘Macbeth’, proving how easily contents of such different creative worlds can work together. Very strong sound, with lots of plausibly ethereal themes. Ominous, yet exhilarating. The classical sections combine so well with the metallic melodies and it just increases the buzz of the riffs. A carefully and intelligently constructed track.

No Luck – A very different extreme here, but those classical, orchestral sounds still linger, in the background. Now, though, it’s a much more metal vocal sound. A very competent one, aswell. A powerful, Gothic edge adds a little more pizzazz and variety. There’s a sharp point to the riffage, while the vocals work through a diverse range, succeeding, at every aspect. It’s an interesting track, with the casino sounds and consistent drum beat in the background. Returning to the opening gambling scenes, at the end.

Overall – A fresh, vibrantly unusual sound, with much diversity to offer and a very proficient band, performing. It’s a good example of the many and varied roads rock can go down and how effective and enlivening the sound combinations can be.

8/10 ********

For fans of Deja Doom, Space Parasites, White Crone, Lita Ford.
