Kvelertak’s selftitled debutalbum is by far one of the most interesting releases of 2010, with their explosive mix of black metal, garage rock, hardcore, punk and metal in general they have combined a sound of their own. The band formed in Norway just a couple years before the release of the debut have by now reached a big hype and they tour all over the world.
Unfortunate i have not had the chance to see the band live for myself, but the people i know who have seen em think its full on action from start to beginning of show, so if you get the chance, take it!
The vinyl is presented in a very nice gatefold cover with an amazing coverart and on double vinyl for best soundquality. The songs are sung in both Norweigan and English and are very catchy for being this kind of music.
The album kicks off with the straight forward “Ulvetid”, jumps in on the catchy “Mjöd” and from there on it’s just a pure joy to listen to, there are only highs on no lows on this album, or “just killers no fillers” as some peoplewould say. If you have missed out on Kvelertak, check out the video below for “Mjöd” and they grab the album, it’s just that amazing!
