Istanbul-based instrumental progressive rock band KES is the new kid on the block in the instrumental rock music’s world.

KES was formed in 2012 by Mehmet Demirdelen (Drums), Cenk Turanlı (Bass) and Emre Kula (Guitar), who met as students at Istanbul’s Yildiz University’s School of Music. Listening to KES, the flow, funk and friendship between these talented musicians immediately becomes clear. Having recorded the album live certainly aided its high level of energy.

The progressive rock audience will appreciate the musical craftsmanship of the album – drums, bass, guitar and their intricate arrangements catch the listener right away. From the first beats to the last notes, this is an album made by musicians with a capital M.

In an album review by Geoff Barton in Classic Rock Magazine, KES is being described as “inspired by the dark, jagged power of Meshuggah and Tool” and “strongly recommended”, stating that “these young Turks will surely make waves outside their home country soon.”

With Kamlama, KES does an impressive job in showing where instrumental progressive rock music could be going in the years to come. Not surprisingly, it’s been said that KES is one of the best things that happened in Turkish rock lately. It’s hard to disagree.

Kamlama was recorded live in January 2014 at Maslak 1024 Studios by Murat Gülbay and Cem Ömeroğlu. Selim Demirdelen shot the first music video for the track Hak.

KES has played countless concerts and festivals in Turkey and will be touring Germany and Switzerland with 10 concerts between December 2016 – January 2017. In addition to the group’s recent tour, KES will be taking stage in New York in early 2017 and is invited to perform at the Austin Instrumental Music Festival on February 25th, 2017.
