Characterised by a slow seductive rhythm section with a heavy, groove laden bass sound, layered with dark vocals and tough guitar lines, Katie Kruel’s music marks influences of the Melvins’ style of sludge, as well as stoner and  doom rock.

The themes of the lyrics and (mostly) warm, laid back style of singing, might show Gothic Americana elements, but you better forget the stifling atmosphere of the U.S. South: Katie Kruel’s realm is firmly set within the oppressive heat of Northern Europe’s darkest urban underbelly!

So… sludge, stoner, doom or even gothic Americana….whatever influence: Katie Kruel creates its own contemporary unique sound that will pull you through your hidden fears.
