Klogr are an Italian rock/ metal project which came together in 2010
under the watchful eye of frontman Gabriele “Rusty” Rustichelli who
appears to have had a hand in several alternative projects in Italy.
This album is part of a larger project involving 10 video presentations
of the band’s sound.
Musically the band are less leftfield than the arty project may
suggest and they produce some interesting solid rock The album is based
on a rather complex concept based on a controlling society and starts
off with ‘Live Dying’ which has a driving riff and strong vocals from
Rusty, bringing to mind a mix of Soundgarden, Tool and Alterbridge.
Songs of the album for me though are ‘ Bleeding’ which is possibly the
heaviest track on the album with a strong, low down and dirty detuned
guitar, the result is a corker of a metal track and ‘Silted Memories’
which has a great melody line and soaring chorus, fine stuff.
If I was being critical and, let’s face it, that’s what I am here
for, the songs do tend to sound a bit repetitive over the course of the
album. Having said that though, there are moments of greatness here and
if the afore mentioned mix of influences had you salivating at the
thought then you would definitely get a lot from this release.
