"The heavy, harshly abrasive sound on which they forge their songs is clearly a must-hear for metalheads" - UNXIGNED

"The track is a crushing dark oddessey of murderous intent in vengeance lyrically with a swirling plague wind of atmosphere and an undercurrent of meloncholic tones sonically (not to mention Ossoway’s larynx troubling unclean vocal tones which are pure Evil) that is mirrored in the video itself" - Metalnoise

"With hard chest thumping drums and bass, and ferocious riffs, Sean Ossoway snarls and growls his way through each song, looking all the while like some grim reaper" - Drew Scott, Moshville Times

"The Ward is a lot of things but the over-riding one is… brilliant." - Carl 'The Disc' Fisher, gbhbl

Kvilla are five-piece metal band from Manchester, UK. Taking influence from several genres and different corners of metal, they strive to create something of their own.

Their first EP 'The Ward' contains songs that have been described as punk, thrash, black metal, and even shoegaze. Their plan is to push and blur the boundaries of genres even further.
