Rock 'n' Roll riffs, blastbeats, High-pitch-screams, ground-shaking bass and nameless amounts of beer and booze.
Kvelertak came to town on the 9th of may, and we paid witness to their furious live-set. And while we where there, we asked the norwegian black 'n' rollers to answer us some questions.
The day didn't start that well for the band though. Vidar (guitars) was injured and Maciek (guitars) had problems with his sense of balance. Kvelertak were also the only non-hardcore band on a hardcore billing. That means playing for a different crowd than usual.
But when it was time to hit the stage, none of those problems showed. Their energy and hits totally made up for it. Needless to say that I was stoked.
After touring for the whole year so far basically, those guys are still nice and easy-going, simply really awesome to hang out with.
But enough of the praise, here's the interview:
is a Black 'n' Roll band from Stavanger, Norway. Their music covers aspects of hardcore punk, black metal and rock'n'roll. Their lyrics are only in norwegian.
Kvelertak's self-titled debut record was produced by Kurt Ballou of Converge. The artwork was done by John Baizley from Baroness.
Catch the guys on tour!
