Norwegian epic extreme metallers KEEP OF KALESSIN have entered the Norwegian charts at #2 with their new album, Reptilian.

Commented mainman Obsidian Claw: “We're very happy with the #2 position on the Norwegian charts and especially the fact that no other metal band in Norway, except DIMMU BORGIR, has had a better position than this. It is always great to be appreciated in your home country and it gives the band a solid ground to build from throughout Europe and US.”

Reptilian is scheduled for release in North America on June 8th. The tracklist is as follows:

‘Dragon Iconography’

‘The Awakening’


‘The Dragontower’

‘Leaving The Mortal Flesh’

‘Dark As Moonless Night’

‘The Divine Land’

‘Reptilian Majesty’

Reptilian is the follow-up to Keep Of Kalessin’s 2008 release, Kolossus and was recorded once again at their own studio in Trondheim, Norway. Mixing duties were handled by Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, BEHEMOTH, IN FLAMES).
