After four years and switching out founding vocalist Erlend Hjelvik with Ivar Nikolaisen, Kvelertak has announced their new album Splid. The album is out February 14 and you can check out the lengthy, yet very riff-packed new track "Bråtebrann" below. Splid was recorded with Kurt Ballou (High On Fire, Converge, Trap Them, etc.) at Godcity Studio in Salem, MA, and here's what the band had to say about the record.
"We are very excited that our new album Splid will be released through Rise Records and we look forward to being a part of the Rise family in the coming years. Splid ('discord' in English) is a deep dive into western gluttony, our own stupidity, and the abyss of the earth."
It's worth noting that a few of the tracks in the tracklist are in English for the first time in Kvelertak's history. One of which, "Crack of Doom," features Mastodon bassist Troy Sanders.
