Kylver (pronounced – Kill-ver) are a four piece instrumental progressive rock/metal band that have crafter their take on the progressive genre by mixing slow and heavy doom riffs, odd time signatures, atmospherics of post-rock and Hammond tones of the 70’s with a classic rock and metal sound.
Kylver released their first album ‘The Mountain Ghost’ in May 2015 – a forty minute concept album consisting of four tracks that follow the fictitious tale of a spirit who inflicts torment on the residents of a village that lies in the shadow of his mountainous home.
Kylver released their second album in the summer of 2016, ‘The Island’. Like the first, it is a concept album that follows the story of a ship that sets sail in search of a mythical island that is said to be a portal to another world. Both albums have been supported by a string of live performances around the country and have received praise from the likes of Echoes and Dust, Prog Magazine, Progressive Music Planet and Metal Injection.
