KVELERTAK UNVEIL NEW SONG ‘FANDEN TA DETTE HULL’
NEW ALBUM ‘SPLID’ OUT FEBRUARY 14 VIA RISE RECORDS
UK HEADLINE TOUR IN MARCH
With the release of their acclaimed new album ‘Splid’ imminent, Norwegian band KVELERTAK have shared another new song, titled ‘Fanden Ta Dette Hull’.
Elaborating on the song, they explain, “In Stavanger city museum there used to be a exhibition in the basement called “crooked animals and smiling skeletons”. The story behind this name is pretty simple. Most of the skeletons are as old as the museum. They had, after so many years, become crooked and it looked like they were smiling. The first thing you could see was a skeleton of “Homo Sapiens” and it was a real skeleton of a man who grew up in my neighbourhood in the 19th century. This guy was buried last year, in 2019. FANDEN TA DETTE HULL is the story of his life. And what a life!”

Long awaited, fourth studio album ‘Splid’ is set for release on February 14th via Rise Records. It is the first from KVELERTAK since 2016’s ‘Nattesferd’ and is also the recorded debut of their new singer, Ivar Nikolaisen, who joined the group in 2018. The album was recorded with Kurt Ballou (Converge, Code Orange, Zeal & Ardor, Every Time I Die, Dillinger Escape Plan, High On Fire) at Godcity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts.
The band kicked off 2020 by unveiling new song and video ‘Crack Of Doom’, featuring Troy Sanders of Mastodon. Watch the official video here. The video is directed by the award winning, renowned Norwegian stills photographer and music video director Stian Andersen. Stian has been a part of the KVELERTAK circle for many years, having also directed their previous videos for “Kvelertak” and “Bronsegud”. Earlier, the group shared first new song ‘Bråtebrann’, also taken from ‘Splid’, which was highlighted as a Track Of The Week on The Guardian‘s website. Listen to it on YouTube here.
KVELERTAK state, “‘Splid’ (‘discord’ in English) is a deep dive into western gluttony, our own stupidity, and the abyss of the earth. Working with Kurt again has been amazing and we’re extremely happy with the production. We’ve pushed ourselves to the edge this last year – musically, physically, and mentally. The result is one hour of catchy riffs, punk rock, and heavy metal influenced by a world in discord to accompany our way towards Ragnarok.”
