Kvelertak - Meir (2013)

Kvelertak are a Norwegian band who are part hardcore punk, part alt-rock, part black metal and 100% awesome. Kvelertak (Norwegian for “strangle hold”) formed in 2007, releasing their eponymous debut in 2010.

It is really hard to pin down a definitive sound to Meir (Norwegian for “More”), but while retaining a brutal heavy metal sound, they maintain a high energy, punky upbeat attitude. Vocals are more or less screamed in what seems to be a major black metal influence, while hardcore punk informs the music, with some diversions and a knack for a catchy hook, but ultimately heavy.

A fantastic album with a great sense of fun (just watch the video below).

Favourite tracks: Bruane Brenn, Evig Vandrar, Kvelertak
