An MP3 of KEEP OF KALESSIN drummer Vyl "rippin' it up" during the band's appearance at the the Trondheim Jazzfestival on Friday, September 1 has been made available for download at this location. KEEP OF KALESSIN performed a one-time, unique show together with the duo MONOLITHIC in what was described as "a concert where extreme metal meets jazz at an insanely high tempo."

Commented KEEP OF KALESSIN's Obsidian C.: "First we thought about showing the jazz audience that we are capable of playing much more than extreme metal, but after having it up for discussion we came to conclude that if we're really going to blow their mind we'll have to do what we do best — and that's doing everything ten times faster than normal!"

KEEP OF KALESSIN's latest album, "Armada", entered the Norwegian national album chart at position No. 20 upon its release earlier in the year. The CD is the group's first with vocalist Thebon, who made his live debut with the band during their live shows in 2005, including the Eastern European tour with EXODUS and HYPOCRISY in December.
