Norwegian super-duo studio project Keldian has the dubious honor of being one of my favorite sources of music. And like so many of my “favorites,” they’re only power metal in an occasional/secondary fashion – though that remains the sub-genre of heavy metal to which the band is most easily marketed. Their albums frequently dip into space rock, symphonic rock, AOR, and now, even Eurobeat in varying measure to round out a sound that, love it or hate it, is utterly unmistakable. The release of 2013’s Outbound was a lance of brilliant solar energy that ignited the band’s fan-base and whipped long-timers and newcomers alike into a frenzy.
