There are bands that try to say fuck you to the world and there are bands that want to sound like bands that try to say fuck you to the world. Kvelertak couldn’t care less for either. They are their own category. They have three guitarists. One of them fingerpicks. They are their own prestigious circle of original thought and masterful creativity.

With no Wi-Fi and the mellowing rumble of the drums, it’s a serene place to reflect on times past, and what a crazy week I’ve just had. I’m at the start of the TesseracT tour with Protest The Hero and Maylene & The Sons of Disaster which is awesome, and I’ve just come from Austin, Texas and the South By South West festival.
