Initially attracting attention for featuring in its ranks guitar wizards Mick Barr (Ocrilim, Orthrelm, etc.) and Colin Marston (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia, Behold... The Arctopus, Byla, etc.), Krallice surpassed their reputation as a "side-project band" with the release of their unique 2008 self-titled debut. Black metal at its core while also incorporating progressive tinges and references to its members' other works, the album caused a sensation in the scene, landing on "Year-End Best Of" lists in many major metal publications and media outlets like Decibel, Terrorizer, and Pitckfork. It even inexplicably seeped over into the mainstream consciousness: SPIN Magazine placed Krallice in their "Top 5 Metal Bands You Should Know," and singer/songwriter Ryan Adams gave them the number two spot on his Best Albums of 2008 list (alongside Metallica, Coldplay, and Mariah Carey!). In the meantime, the band honed their guitar gymnastics on the live front, touring with the likes of Wolves in the Throne Room.Krallice's much-anticipated sophomore album offers the intensity of its predecessor, multiplied tenfold. A transcendental experience, Dimensional Bleedthrough is a surging 77-minute epic where insane counterpoint rhythms battle it out with melancholic, layered melodies under a progressive, blackened shroud. Adding more of everything, Krallice pummels the listener into submission with their overwhelming musicality and skill.Dimensional Bleedthrough is the album that will solidify Krallice's position as one of the most important bands in metal today.
