The jagged-looking Norwegian moniker of Kvelertak is just about the only thing accessible about the group, currently one of metal's most buzzed-about bands. In reality, the band's latest album, Meir, contains a euphoric and euphonic take on extreme metal that blends southern rock grooves, funky exuberance, and hyper-charged riffs similar to their corpse-paint-wearing black-metal neighbors but not as outwardly exclusionary. They're not afraid to have a little fun, and that's why they've amassed fans ranging from the bloody-knuckle hardcore screamers in Converge to the actual Crown Prince of Norway.
