Keelhaul are a four piece from Cleveland, Ohio.
The group plays a blend of sludge/post-metal -- lots of busy drums atop crashing bass. Guitars knife their way through the lower core, making for a frenetic push/pull of colliding energies. Vocals, though rarely used, escalate some of the beefier jams into more memorable territory.

The band broke through the surface with their second album, 'Keelhaul II', released on Hydrahead. Following that release in 2003, the band went into a sort of reclusive hiatus -- only recently returning with, 'Keelhaul's Triumphant Return to Obscurity'.

Big jams. I made sure to up the highest quality versions so that your introduction is a good one -- turkey-day cheer an' all that.
