4.5 superbterriblekonrad | February 7th 20

Comeback in glory and brightness. I understand nothing in Norwegian language but its fucking powerful and melodic at a blow. Cannot stop moving my head back and forth.

4.0 excellentBRAman22 | February 27th 20

First half was better IMO due to the shorter track times of straight up upbeat hardcore, but the second half's longer songs are certainly more eclectic in nature, as you may expect from Kvelertak.

Bratebrann has been kicking my ass for 3 months now. Good to know the album surrounding the song is great too.

4.0 excellentChino smoking it up! | February 17th 20

This album is pretty solid and step fw from the previous, badly produced one (fixed by Kurt Balou here). They consolidate their more approachable sound. Necrosoft is standout, such as the Ghostlike, very hard rock riffing, track Fanden ta dette hull! (check that awesome punk HXC riff and solo varying with hard rock riffs). My highlight of this album though are the more serious mood 3 final tracks, specially Delirium tremens and Ved bredden av Nihil, that shows another side of the band yet to explore.

A return to the form of the first two albums. Highly enjoyable and with even more variety to satisfy everyone's tastes. It will be one of my album of the year contenders.

3.0 goodGrumpy | February 14th 20

I'm disappointed. Most of the tracks turned out pretty lame... "Br´┐Żtebrann", "Fanden ta dette hull!" & "Delirium tremens" were outstandingly awesome. But the rest? Uninspired (and not black enough!!!!) - pretty much the same case like it was with 'Nattesfred'. And this really saddened me because I'm sure they still have the potential to write something like the self-titled or 'Meir'. Also, I'm satisfied with the new singer, he's a fuckin' awesome screamer (but please, do not try to sing...).

2.5 averagededex | February 14th 20

That first track had me hyped with that slow rise. Then, I was hit by a hard rock-influenced feeble copy of Meir. Some solis are cool, as well as some riffs here and there, for example Rogaland, Necrosoft, Discord and kinda the run from track 8 to 10. That "kinda" is what ruins the album for me: almost each track is filled with at least one cool and one bad moment, and the songs not hindered by less-than-average parts do not have a significant impact. But, more importantly, what made me love Kvelertak in the first place is how effortlessly they could mix black metal evilness, hardcore punk fury and hard rock swagger. Even though each of these three subgenres still is present in this album, this is less evil, less furious, and less anthemic than Kvelertak or Meir. I can't really explain why I like what I like. All I can say is that I think they can't explain either why and how they lost what made them so exciting in the first place. I'm supposed to headbang, yet I barely tap my foot. I would love to argue it's all because the former lead singer left, but this album is plagued by the same problems Nattesferd had: compared to the band's first two albums, it's mostly uninspired, uninventive, and uneventful (and yeah the new singer does not have the same intensity Erlend had). On its own, it's not a bad record. But almost each track here is a lesser version of another track in their catalogue. As the new Tame Impala record, very little sticks. 2.7
