Review: Vikrit - The King in Exile



Vikrit is a band from India that has been active since 2010. They released their debut EP titled “The King in Exile” in early 2018, bringing a mix of a catchy progressive metal and hard/alternative rock sound which circles around melodeath in some parts, then turns back again where it takes its roots. The EP includes five songs. Both lyrically and musically the album is built around emotional fields covered with anger. 

“The King in Exile” knows how to satisfy one's ears. Great guitar melodies, mostly brutal vocals in a combination with cleans, lots of “anger” that helps in expressing the song vibes. This album is a great familiar tune from the very known and loved bands such as In Flames, Mastodon, Tool, and Opeth. 


“The King in Exile” is an interesting take on the mentioned genres; technically it is very professionally built. Hopefully we won’t wait too long for its follow-up. A must-listen of the year.
