|KELDIAN’S 4th studio release "Darkness And Light" CD includes all 8 songs composed and produced by Keldian recorded and mixed by Arild Aardalen. All the drums tracks were done by our good friend Jørn Holen. Fans will not be dissapointed by the new studio release by Keldian. President of Perris Records Tom Mathers is quoted "This is the best release to date by Keldian, This is a masterpiece that will be enjoyed by many for years to come". Keldian is a Norwegian metal band that made their mark with their first two albums on Perris Records: Heaven’s Gate (2007) and Journey Of Souls (2008). Their music is a blend of classic 1980s melodic rock and symphonic metal. Outbound (2013) is their latest release, and it is now issued on CD for the first time through Perris Records. To mark the occasion, Perris is also reissuing the previous two records on CD, featuring remastered audio that was previously only available as digital downloads. The new Keldian CDs also include new concept art and liner notes by the band. Keldian is a studio project formed by Christer Andresen (guitars and vocals) and Arild Aardalen (synthesizers). Among the many contributors to their albums are the drummers Per Hillestad (a-ha) and Jørn Holen (Vreid / Windir). Keldian produce their own records and have garnered a worldwide fanbase with what many now call sci-fi metal, since their lyrics often deal with issues of space exploration, spiritual journeys and humankind’s destiny among the stars.
Keldian draw on influences from Iron Maiden via Europe to Pink Floyd to create a unique style of hard rock and metal, characterized by heavy riffs, uplifting melodies, sophisticated synthesizers and soaring vocals. Perris Records was proud to release all three Keldian albums: HEAVEN’S GATE , JOURNEY OF SOULS and OUTBOUND in 2015.
