12 Days of Christmetal: Kvelertak - Kvelertak - 2010/2011
Mother tongue aside, the vocal instrument on Kvelertak recalls the inspired punk energy of Brainiac's Tim Taylor and the triple-guitar punk/metal/hardcore assault of the music has more hooks than a Hellraiser movie. Each track twists and turns and surprises so frequently that the listener is constantly on the edge of their seat - if not on their feet - and the record has yet to grow stale. It's a hell of a lot of fun and, whether they're singing about Vikings or pickled herring, as long as it sounds this good, I'm in.
Head on over to The Metal Advisor for an in-depth review of this monster and then buy a copy. You still got two shopping days left to stuff someone's stocking full o'Kvelertak.
