Kvelertak - Splid 2LPRise Records
Double vinyl LP pressing. Rolling Stone pegged their last offering, Meir, at #2 on it's 20 Best Metal Albums of 2013 and named Nattesferd among the 25 Most Anticipated Metal Albums of 2016. Pitchfork, Spin, The Quietus, Decibel, BBC Music, and more have sung their praises. While opening a sold-out Foo Fighters show in Norway, rock legend Dave Grohl presented the band with their first Norwegian gold plaque in recognition of 2011's self-titled debut. Turning Metallica into vocal fans, they've toured with everybody from Slayer and Mastodon to Gojira and Anthrax, building a diehard fan base along the way. However, Nattesferd sees the musicians raging at full blast and progressing once again. The band recently joined forces with Rise Records to release their fourth full-length album, Splid. They teamed up with producer Kurt Ballou (of Converge), and the result is nothing short of impressive. The thrashing riff s and sweeping chants are everything Kvelertak fans have come to expect and more.
