The Bavarian Formation KromleK was founded in Góa 2004 after the line-up has been completed by Hrím and Hrísdólgr. With the new possibilities in both sound and style the former BM-Combo became a more epic oriented Viking Metal Band. Because of the mixture of Norse folk and bombastic Viking Metal, combined with a constant urge to experiment [Arabian melodies connected with Finnish Humppa etc.] and an obvious epic vein KromleK has meanwhile liberated itself from the inappropriate stamp ‘another band riding the Pagan-wave’ and rose up to a name well-known not only in Bavaria but whole Germany’s Pagan/Viking Metal-scene. The content of the lyrics written in three languages [German, English & Swedish] is located somewhere between Norse/Teutonic mythology, folk influenced, philosophical fairies and humorous stories from the realm of the Trolls. As such one should see the last ones because especially those texts that handle with Troll warriors and trollish warfare should not be taken for too serious, there’s always a little smile with them. The main reason is that one cannot underline or even support serious, deeply philosophical lyrics with Humppa music. KromleK is not an ‚evil’ band, not a formation of ‚true’ Black purists but a combo of innovation with a delicate sense for when to be humorous and when to be serious.
