Kvelertak – Meir

The sound of this band can be summarized by two words – brutally chaotic. Crunching guitars and explosive energy comprise a good part of the tracks on Meir. A powerful and aggressive brand of music. Wisely they have added a little of a punk sound into their black metal base. In essence it will all sound vaguely familiar while containing enough originality to make the songs stand out from the rest. There is enough variety and melody that you won’t get bored. What little criticism I have has to do with the vocals. The lyrics are all in Norwegian, so don’t expect to understand what the band is singing about. That, however, is not the problem. What was weak was the actual vocals which were a little grating at times to my ears.
