Norwegian rockers Kvelertak will release their third album, Nattesferd, on May 13 via Roadrunner. The follow-up to 2013’s Meir was recorded live at Amper Tone Studio in Oslo, Norway. Nattesferd is the band’s first effort to be recorded in the group’s homeland. It was produced by the band and mixed/engineered by Nick Terry (Lindstrøm, Turbonegro, The Libertines).
Commented Kvelertak frontman Erlend Hjelvik:
“We are finally getting ready to release our third album, ‘Nattesferd’, on the world, and however cliché it may sound, I’m not afraid to say that this is our best one yet. It’s an exquisite smorgasbord of riffs infused with everything between the best of classic rock and heavy metal. I’m certain it will blow the minds of both old and new fans.”
A new Kvelertak song called “1985” can be streamed using the YouTube link below.
Meir topped the official chart in Norway. The CD, which sold 1,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release, was issued on March 26, 2013 via Roadrunner Records. It was produced by Converge’s Kurt Ballou and features cover artwork by John Dyer Baizley.
Kvelertak is: Erlend Hjelvik (vocals); Vidar Landa (guitar); Bjarte Lund Rolland (guitar); Maciek Ofstad (guitars); Marvin Nygaard (bass) and Kjetil Gjermundrød (drums).
