Kells is a French symphonic alternative gothic metal band.

Kells originally formed in 2001 with Virginie (vocals), Patrick(guitar), and Fabrice (keyboards). In 2004, the line-up was increased to 5 with Jérémie (Bass/flute) and Guillaume (Drums).

Combining various musical influences to create a sound combining pop, electronica, metal and classical music, Kells released their debut album “Gaia” in November 2005 through indie label AVFP.

Kells then began to perform first in their Rhone-Alpes region, then they took to the road to play all around France, Belgium and Luxemburg: playing 55 shows in less than a year, sharing the stage with famous French and international artists such as Apocalyptica, Epica, Aqme, Magica, Paradise Lost, Eths, L’Esprit du Clan, Tripod, Deportivo, Dub Incorporation, Kaophonic Tribu, etc… In March 2007, Guillaume left the band.

KELLS Anachromie

Album · 2012 · Gothic Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Time Signature
Asphalt...

Genre: modern metal

Kells are normally categorized as a symphonic metal band, and perhaps their earlier releases are symphonic (I dont know because this is the first Kells album I've heard), but this one is not symhponic at at all. The style on "Anachromie" falls somewhere between alternative metalb and metalcore with groove and melody being the key components.

And, I think it is a quite good release, fronted by Virginie Goncalves' powerful and expressive vocals, ranging from soft singing over rock belting to harsh screaming - I especially like it when she goes off into oriental territory as in the introduction of 'Illusion D'Une Aire'. The sound is slightly minimalist at times, and also quite unpolished, which I actually think is a plus.

As mentioned above, there is a lot of emphasis on groove, and these guys are very good at coming up with groovy and hard rocking riffs - which go well together with Goncalves vocal lines; the choruses are typically quite melodic, so there is some potential for commercial appeal, too. I also quite like the way that the rhythm section works in terms of groove and dynamics (there really is a tight chemistry between the drums and the bass).

There's lots of groove on this album, and fans of both groovy metal and melodic metal should check it out.
