Kvelertak – “Evig Vandrar”

Michael Nelson/StereoGum

Norwegian black ‘n’ rollers Kvelertak recently announced a monster North American tour with the almighty High On Fire, and in conjunction with that announcement, they’ve released a new video for a song from their fucking awesome early-2013 self-titled sophomore album. The clip is a really cool cartoon that was pretty evidently inspired by the Tusken Raiders of Tattoine. The song of course kicks ass. And the tour is almost definitely the best live-music experience you’ll have in Q4; both Kvelertak and High On Fire are other-level live acts with few equals at the moment. I’ve seen both bands on their most recent trips through town — High On Fire at Williamsburg Hall Of Music last December and Kvelertak at the Studio At Webster Hall this past May — and I can’t think of two better shows I've attended over the last 12 months, if not longer. That show comes with my highest possible endorsement. Go. Video and tour dates below.
