KVELERTAK recently completed a U.S tour alongside CONVERGE andTORCHE.

Featuring iconic artwork by John Dyer Baizley (BARONESS, KYLESA),KVELERTAK's self-titled 2010 debut album — which was certified gold in the band's home country — has earned the band extensive worldwide acclaim, with Kerrang! going so far as to call the sextet "the best Norwegian band since A-HA." The album, which features vocals entirely in the band's native language, recieved 9/10 ratings from Metal Hammer, Decibel and Rock Hard magazines and earned the group an invitation to perform a live session on BBC Radio 1.

The descriptions of the lyrical content on this album pretty much confirm this.

For those who haven't seen:

ÅPENBARING
A feather clad man breaks into your skull. He has such sights to show you!

SPRING FRA LIVET
When the walls of life are closing in, you best run for the hills!

TREPAN
Trepanning is a surgical intervention in which a hole is drilled into the human skull, releasing evil spirits.

BRUANE BRENN
Burn the bridges, kill the jailer, live life on the run!

EVIG VANDRAR
An unholy pact has doomed this man to walk the earth until the end of time.

SNILEPISK
This dark tyrants whip is made of hair and flesh. He will leave scars across the land.

MÅNELYST
In the cold light of the moon you become possessed by evil.

NEKROKOSMOS
A green meteor of iron strikes the graveyard. An intergalactic traveller won't leave until everything around him is dead.

UNDERTRO
Nothing matters. We're not even a grain of sand in Cosmos.

TORDENBRAK
There is a storm coming. All you can do is pray!

KVELERTAK
Like the Asgardsreia we will have all the mortals in our way join our cavalcade.

Seriously stoked for this. Also assuming that their touring cycle will finally end up with a date near me. Stoked as FUCK for that.

They just put out the first single "Bruane Brenn" in Scandinavia. I looked all over for a stream but all I was able to find was a 30 second sample. It should be up on youtube or something later today.

The album.


It seems a little early for promo copies to be sent out. They didn't even reveal the artwork yet.

Apparently Kvelertak just signed to Roadrunner, not sure how I feel about this.

Tits and bird shit is one of the most metal combinations I can think of.

It means they probably get to tour more. That's a good thing to me.

That's what I was hoping for when Grand Magus signed but it never happened. Kvelertak seem to tour more often and I they played with Converge last year so I'm guessing they will be back in the states this year.

I've seen them on 3 different tours since March 2011 where I went into a show never ever hearing of them so I can only see them coming around more often.
