Everyone’s favorite Norwegian party-starters Kvelertak really blew up in the metal scene when they released their self titled debut album in 2010. Produced by Converge’s Kurt Ballou and featuring brilliant cover art by Baroness’ Jon Baizley, Kvelertak mixed rock and roll, hardcore punk, and black metal to create an intoxicating and catchy as hell set of tunes that sounded like it came from Andrew WK in corpse paint. The album was acclaimed by many (us included!) and they’ve gathered a large amount of buzz as a phenomenal live band over the last couple of years as well.
Now Kvelertak are making their return with their sophomore album, and they’re once again recording with Kurt Ballou at his very own Godcity Studios! Via Twitter:
I would imagine that this means Kvelertak’s new album can be expected out late 2012/early 2013. Get your mead at the ready. In the mean time, Kvelertak are soon to be on tour in North America with Converge, Torche, and more! Check out dates here!
