Burzum - Belus or Crippled Black Phoenix - I, Vigilante. They are both sleep inducing in a good way.

Kvelertak will release their highly anticipated sophomore album, "Meir", on March 26 via Roadrunner Records and we asked vocalist Erlend Hjelvik what fans can expect from this new effort.

"More of everything (hence the album title "Meir" which means "more" in Norwegian)! We've expanded our sound since the first album; the heavy parts are heavier, the hooks are catchier and it even rocks out more!"
