August 15th, 2023 is the day Kekal turns 28 years as a band! That being said, it feels that now it's time to have a much needed rest or hibernation period. No more music-related activities for the rest of the year.
This is also an announcement that we will be taking a break from social-media, so you won't be seeing new posts about Kekal both on Facebook as well as on Instagram until we're back (which is no one knows when!). Basically, we will be taking a hermit mode and go offline for a while.
Even the band has operated without official members for 14 years (practically half of the 28 years period) and no longer play any live shows since 2005, the band never took a hiatus or break from the usual writing-recording-releasing music activities since 1995. The first half of the year 2023 was also a very busy year for Kekal, with 2 new releases (albeit not new albums): "Eternitarian" best-of compilation, and the updated edition of 2018 album "Deeper Underground", as well as remastering of older albums. The band feels grateful for being able to continuously running independently, with 13 full-length albums released so far. We would like to thank you for keep listening to the music of Kekal and also supporting the band, both financially as well as energetically by sharing the music to your friends or on social-media. Music is like the river that needs to be channelled to benefit the greater society.
Kekal's latest release is "Deeper Underground" (2023 Updated Edition). While this is not technically a new album (originally released back in 2018), but it received significant updates. Remixed and completely remastered in 2023, with 1 song received partial new vocals + lyrics, a new front cover artwork, and a hidden bonus track.

As a continuation from the 2020 album “Quantum Resolution“, “Envisaged“ was specifically created to celebrate The Great Awakening of humanity and Earth's Ascension to the higher octave of vibrational frequency. All the songs were written during the recording process, to capture the spontaneous moments of insights within each and every passage of creation. The music and lyrics represent a creative spiritual journey following continuous revelations regarding the current events on Earth that have been unfolding especially in the past few years. If observed and put together in a continuum, they signify the process of global collective awakening and purification towards humanity's grand destiny: to transcend the matrix and rise beyond the construct of duality.
Stylistically, this album follows Kekal's faithful tradition by utilizing avant-garde and alternative approach to various expressions of rock, metal and electronic music.
Alternate Frequency Reception EP is now released as a digital-only mini-album for download through Bandcamp. Download includes a bonus 4-page digital booklet (PDF).
Alternate Frequency Reception EP contains different mix interpretations of 3 songs from the 2020 album Quantum Resolution. These interpretations cannot really fit into the album’s flow, but if being presented individually, removed from the album context, these songs can demonstrate themselves to be as substantial as the album version. They all deliver the same message.
This digital-only EP can work as a supplemental release to Quantum Resolution album.
Get the entire Kekal digital album discography (a bundle of 19 Kekal digital releases sold on Bandcamp including 13 full-length albums and 4 EPs) for only $29 USD. That's a 50% off a-la carte price.
