Metal can be great. We all know that. Almost any kind of metal is great, with the exception of black-metal, which is not great. It is bad. The cover of Canora’s first album hinted at black-metal. Therefore I was moderately pleased when Kelvinator turned out to be a good metal album with no songs about church burnings or members named Gormarsloth or the like. At times Canora sounds like classic nu-metal, at times heavy-rock and at times like metal influenced pop. It is melodic and interesting. The lyrics, which are in English, are very metal which is fitting but won’t win any awards. Basically it boils down to this: Kelvinator is a solid metal album – the kind boys will like but girls won’t but all should. Why it’s named after a refrigerator is a puzzle.
