Klone – Here Comes The Sun


Klone – Here Comes The Sun
Sonic Rendezvous – 2015
Metal, Prog, Rock
Rated: ***

The sound of Duplicate, their doom metal debut from 2003, has slowly but steadily changed into something much for proggy, elaborate and dark. We are referring to Klone, the French rock formation that has just released their fifth album Here Comes The Sun. It has done away with the howling and screeching and has chosen to carefully tread upon a path that is treacherous and meticulous. It has turned them into a highly melodic and colorful rock force which can just as easily implore grandiose synthesizers as copper sounding brass. As if they intend to do a danse macabre on the very edge of the horizon, casting somber shadows and summoning saddened specters. Not in the least thanks to a vocalist that knows what restraint is and knows exactly when to let things go and go up in flames. There’s no denying the fact that the Klone of the past is no more, but there’s a new Klone, a better one perhaps. A tinkered and tailored version of everything they did so well before and even better now…
