Kvelertak should suck. I mean, "blackened hardcore punk". C'mon! I don't do 'core'. But when I eventually gave in and gave them a chance, my only regret was not listening to them sooner. While the lyrics are completely unintelligible 95% of the time, the guitardriven music is so irresistibly groovy and infectious, that I find myself not caring that I can't hear what the songs are about. And that, to me, is rare. "Meir" is certainly a step up from their eponymous debut, with songs like "Trepan" and "Bruane Brenn" with its catchy clean-sung chorus providing the highlights. Kvelertak are an anomaly. A sweaty, loud and rude anomaly. I don't know if they deserve all the hype, but most of it anyway. "Eg sa... Kvelertak!"
