Bra Saker!

If Google translator is to be trusted, "bra saker" means "good shit" in Norwegian. And that's exactly what Kvelertak's second album is - ass-kicking, dynamic and artistically diverse black'n'roll. I didn't really expect MEIR to even equal the great debut, but now I await Thor to smash my head to pieces with his hammer, as I was gravely mistaken.

The band matured. Without losing anything from the eclectic style known from their first album, they added more air and flexibility to the songwriting. Consequently, the music is less cramped and feels even more adventurous. Under close scrutiny, the black metal element seems to be a little bit less present in MEIR, but that's really a trifle as it's still one of the dominant ingredients. Kvelertak just seem to be a little bit more daring with their eclectic approach to metal, and that's why this blend of black metal, rock'n'roll, punk rock and Nordic folk sounds so fresh. As a side note, all tracks are in Norwegian so I don't understand a single word, but I've never paid much attention to lyrics in that kind of music anyway.

With their second album, Kvelertak show how a metal band is supposed to evolve. They progressed, grew more confident and created an album that is a perfect development over KVELERTAK. Fans of eclectic metal should check this out or pray Nordic gods' forgiveness, as overlooking MEIR may be their last mistake.
