Kids and riffs ahoy! Our favourite Norwegian metallers Kvelertak have just dropped a fresh new vid from their upcoming second album, Meir, due out March 22 – and we’re proud as punch to premiere it!
Of the new record, vocalist Erlend Hjelvik says, “It is both catchy and heavy; we’re pushing our limits in both ends of that spectre. It’s very varied and there are a lot of surprises in store. I mean, it’s unlike anything I myself have heard before, so we even managed to surprise ourselves.” Bitchin’.
Don’t know who these guys are yet? Time to bid Patrick Star adieu and get out from under that rock as Kvelertak are on the way up. Norwegian rock authority Asbjørn Slettemark dubbed them “the best Norweigan debut of all time”, while resident good-guy Dave Grohl is such a fan that he happily presented the guys with their first gold discs at a sold-out show at Telenor Arena, Norway’s largest indoor venue. We may not know what they’re singing, but we’re damn fond of it.
Would now be a good time to mention that BLUNT has been on the bandwagon since it hit first gear?
Here’s Kvelertak’s first single, “Bruane Brenn”. Enjoy!
