Album review: KLOGR – Blacksnow

Klogr - Blacksnow

Zeta Factory (Release date – Out now)

Blacksnow is the second album release by Italian alt-rockers Klogr. Their first album, ‘Till You Decay’, was released back in 2011 and gained some good press. Since then the band have been touring extensively in Europe and the USA.

The album opens with ‘Zero Tolerance’ which was written in support of the sea wildlife organisation Sea Shepherd of which the band are active campaigners. Musically it is like being cast adrift on rough seas with waves of riffs crashing around and vocalist Rusty screaming to be heard above the heavy swell.

To continue the ocean analogy the album ebbs and flows through its 12 tracks from the full on metal of ‘Guilty and Proud’ to the calmer waters of ‘Ambergris’.  All tracks are well constructed and are reminiscent of Tool at their best. This is an album that reveals more with every listen. On first listen I did find it a bit repetitive but after a few spins the nuances of each track became evident as did the high calibre musicianship of the band.

Klogr may not be to all tastes but they have the talent to float to the top in their chosen genre and  this second album should launch them well on their way.
