As previously reported, Kvelertak have been in the studio with Kurt Ballou recording their sophomore record. The band have revealed the title of that record to be Meir and will be released sometime in March of next year. The band have also revealed the album’s tracks and what looks like to be a summary of the lyrical content or title meanings or just random ramblings. You can view those below as well as their video for “Blodtørst”.
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!
Trepanning is a surgical intervention in which a hole is drilled into the human skull, releasing evil spirits.
Burn the bridges, kill the jailer, live life on the run!
An unholy pact has doomed this man to walk the earth until the end of time.
This dark tyrants whip is made of hair and flesh. He will leave scars across the land.
In the cold light of the moon you become possessed by evil.
A green meteor of iron strikes the graveyard. An intergalactic traveller won’t leave until everything around him is dead.
Nothing matters. We’re not even a grain of sand in Cosmos.
There is a storm coming. All you can do is pray!
Like the Asgardsreia we will have all the mortals in our way join our cavalcade
