Kvelertak are back!!! The Norwegian titans return to the UK for an 8 date tour finishing with a headline slot of the annual Desertfest Festival in London, April 2014.
The bands critically acclaimed ‘Meir’ was produced by Kurt Ballou of Converge, Kvelertak returned with a highly charged, nonstop juggernaut of an album. From the explosively heavy first single, ‘Bruane Brenn’ to the slowed down guitar crunching powerhouse of ‘Evig Vandrar’ to the brutally chaotic ‘Nekrokosmos’ to the delightfully infectious ‘Trepan’, ‘Meir’ is an album that certainly lives up to the hype and draws parallels to the anarchistic energy of The Sex Pistols and Guns N Roses.
‘Meir’ which means ‘More’ is exhilaratingly original. Tight rhythms, inventive guitar hooks and melodies that seep into your consciousness, this is an album that constantly surprises.
