Mick Barr (of Orthrelm and Ocrilim) and the equally well-appreciated axeman Colin Marston (of Behold... The Arctopus and Dysrhythmia), Krallice are an immensely technical -- yet somewhat restrained, compared to some of Barr's other endeavors -- black metal project whose music harks back to the early days of Burzum, Gorgoroth, and Ulver, names that helped build the black metal style in its formative years. Their debut, Krallice, was released in 2008 on Profound Lore to high critical praise. Dimensional Bleedthrough followed in 2009 (earning similar praise as well as appearances on end-of-the-year best lists), and Diotima appeared in 2011. The band elected to release subsequent albums Years Past Matter, Ygg Huur, Prelapsarian, Loüm, and Go Be Forgotten independently, and while those efforts continued to mine the artisanal emissions of their early work, they delivered a more expansive sound due to an uptick in production values.
