Khiral are a band from Finland that plays a mixture of death and thrash metal along with some elements of hardcore and black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Chained" which was released by Inverse Records.
Clean guitars start off the album along with some heavy riffing being added onto the recording a few seconds later while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them as well as the faster sections of t he songs bringing in a great amount of blast beats.
A great amount of thrash elements can be heard in the guitar riffing while the vocals are mostly death metal growls along with a few black metal screams as well as the mid tempo sections also adding in hardcore style breakdowns and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody,, when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and a couple of tracks also brings in a small amount of spoken word parts and clean singing.
Khiral plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in death and modern thrash metal while the hardcore and black metal elements makes the songs stand out a lot more, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Khiral are a very great sounding mixture of death and thrash metal with some elements of hardcore and black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Stain" "Narcissus In Your Mirror" and "Lichen". 8 out of 10.
