Kvöl  are  an  international  duo  with  members  from  the  United  States  and  United  Kingdom  that  plays  a  very  epic  and  atmospheric  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2022  album  "In  Similitude  Of  A  Dream".

  Fire  sounds  start  off  the  album  along  with  some  epic  drum  beats  and  battle  sounds  a  few  seconds  later  before  adding  in  some  acoustic  guitars  and  elements  of  folk  music  before  going  into  a  heavier  musical  direction.  Vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  and  synths  are  also  mixed  in  with  the  heavier  sections  of  the  songs  at  times.

  Clear  vocals  can  also  be  heard  in  some  parts  of  the  recording  while  the  riffs  also  add  in  a  decent  amount  of  melody.  Blast  beats  and  tremolo  picking  can  also  be  heard  in  the  faster  sections  of  the  songs  which  also  gives  the  music  more  of  a  raw  feeling  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  album  also  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.

  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  also  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  along  with  the  synths  also  adding  in  a  variety  of  many  different  sounding  keys  which  also  add  in  an  orchestral  touch  at  times.  Throughout  the  recording  you  can  also  hear  a  decent  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  some  of  the  tracks  are  also  very  long  and  epic  in  length,  female  vocals  and  spoken  word  parts  can  also  be  heard  briefly.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  fantasy  themes. 

  In  my  opinion  Kvöl  are  a  very  great  sounding  epic  and  atmospheric  black  metal  duo  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "The  Looming  Black"  and  "Bestorm  My  Night".  8  out  of  10. - OccultBlackMetalZine
