You folks know that I love Kvelertak. You probably also know that there are a lot of people out there right now who aren’t pleased with the bands new album Meir. Well, I don’t know what the deal is with those people, but I’m quite happy with the new album. Maybe some of these people will grow into the album and maybe they won’t. Regardless, it’s time for all of you to hear it! Continue reading »
I love Kvelertak. It has been very well documented that I love them. I have been highly anticipating their latest album although I have seen a few less-than-flattering reviews of it. I don’t care if I’m the only one, I’m sure I’m gonna like Meir when I finally get my hands on it. I am really looking forward to it now that I’ve heard the new song “Spring Fra Livet.” Continue reading »
The mighty Kvelertak have announced a new North American headlining tour in support of their highly anticipated new record, Meir, which will see a release through Roadrunner Records on March 26th. The band will be accompanied by the likes of Cancer Bats and Black Tusk for this little tour and believe me when I say that faces will be melted. Check out the full schedule below.
A lot of people have been getting excited for the upcoming album from Norway’s Kvelertak, I know because I’m one of them. I absolutely adore their debut, self-titled LP and their new album will hopefully stand up to it or (we can hope) be better. Well, the good dudes in Kvelertak have released a new music video for their track “Bruane Brenn” that shows that they can still have fun. Continue reading »
It’s Friday again and since Rebecca Black is no longer providing the world with original content, I figure we here at AA should fill the void. As most of you should know by now, everyone at American Aftermath has an erection of massive proportions when it comes to all things Converge. Well on their recent tour outing with Torche and Kvelertak, I snuck a video camera into their stop at Club Dada in Dallas, Texas and here is what ensued - Continue reading »
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”.
Norway’s Kvelertak have recently performing some new material live and luckily some fan footage has surfaced on the web. Below you find four videos of new, badass Kvelertak tracks that will likely appear on the band’s upcoming Kurt Ballou produced album. The names of the songs are “Månelyst”, “Trepan”, “Bruane Brenn”, and “Spring Fra Livet”. Check out these hard rocking jams below and stay tuned for more Kvelertak news.

The mighty black and roll superstars, Kvelertak, have posted their second transmission from Kurt Ballou’s Godcity Studio. In this webisode, we see Kvelertak’s guitarist and bassist tracking their new songs, and let me say that this shit is sounding pretty dope. But why wouldn’t it, did you see all those fucking heads and cabs? God damn, I bet this album’s gonna sound amazing.
As of now, I still don’t know a fucking thing about any of the details surrounding the new album, but once I know, you guys will be the first to know.

Why didn’t I know Kvelertak were recording a new album??? Apparently the band is currently hold up in Kurt Ballou‘s Godcity Studio recording the follow-up to their breakout self titled album. Featured above is a short drum tracking video. The video is alright, I mean it’s your standard run of the mill in studio video. The only real bummer about the video is you don’t really get a taste of what Kvelertak are cooking up
Anywho…Who else is super stoked for their new record and their upcoming tour with Converge???

Holy fuck. This. Tour. Rules. I mean, putting Kvelertak and Converge on a bill together is crazy enough. Adding in Torche? Whoa! That completely changes the game. And now you’re telling me that select dates will feature NAILS and/or Whips/Chains? You have got to be fucking kidding me. This is the kind of thing that dream tours are made of. If you miss this tour, you will forever be shunned. Please, do yourself a favor and catch these amazing bands if they are going to come through (and most likely destroy) your town. Check out the dates after the jump. Continue reading »
Yesterday I posted photos of Skeletonwitch from the Metal Injection CMJ Showcase and now I bring you a photo gallery of Kvelertak, Skeletonwitch’s co-headliners. Kvelertak are a fucking amazing band and these photos are proof that the band likes to have fun regardless of their setting. It’s also pretty killer that this was the Norwegian party’ers first time playing New York. Sickness. Check out the gallery below thanks to Maclyn Bean and check out homie’s Flickr page.
A few weeks ago Metal Injection hosted a CMJ Showcase at Club Europa in Brooklyn. The bands featured were Barn Burner, Turbid North, Battlecross and it was headlined by Skeletonwitch and Kvelertak. Photographer Maclyn Bean was there on assignment and got some nice photos of the bands. I will be posting them a set at a time, starting with Skeletonwitch, the Athens, Ohio based blackened, thrashy metal band. Enjoy the photos.
Wow. Is it just a day to talk about tours I will not be attending? Oh well. A while back, we talked about this tour with Toxic Holocaust, Trap Them, Kvelertak and Wolves Like Us. Well, now it appears that The Secret will be taking Trap Them’s place due to some unforeseen health issues. This is a bummer I think. I mean, either way this tour is going to kill. I would be biased either way because I love both of those bands equally. You can still check out the dates here. All the best goes to the members of Trap Them. I hope all is well.

Goes Cube are definitely one of the newer heavy music acts to follow. They have a knack for combining elements of sludge, hard rock, hardcore punk, and even grunge to create something new yet familiar at the same time. Their most recent record, In Tides and Drifts, is one of the better heavy music records released this year. I recently caught up with bassist Matt Tyson to answer a few questions about the album, SXSW, whether he will do a hypothetical split with my hypothetical band, and others.
