Formed back in early 1999 by five friends in La Chaux-de- Fonds, Switzerland, KEHLVIN is delivering a slow, progressive and metallic hardcore. After the release of their first acclaimed album, THE MOUNTAIN DAYLIGHT TIME on Division Records and some shows across Europe with the likes of Burst, Will Haven, Mono, Red Sparowes, Lightning Bolt, Knut and Unsane, the members of khlvn have collaborated with their friends from Rorcal in order to record a split album called ASCENSION. It consists of one song of 30 minutes with the two bands playing simultaneously, written and recorded in 4 days. Since this monolithic masterpiece, the band has recorded an ep called HOLY CANCER, which was released with a live DVD.
In order to promote this piece of savage aggression KEHLVIN has toured across Europe with the bands Celeste and Junius. Nowadays the band is currently looking for shows to support their second full length entitled THE ORCHARD OF FORKING PATHS, a new master piece of tortured sludgin'prog metal. With this new album, we find the band diving ways further in its own personal musical approach and thus developing unexpected schemes which give birth to an original vision of how heavy music should sound.
