Since the release of Kvelertak’s eponymous debut album in 2010, the band have traversed the globe playing over 500 shows in 4 continents over the last 4 years, and picking up three Norwegian Grammy’s (Spellemann awards). They have supported Converge, Foo Fighters, Mastodon, Metallica, Kiss, and most recently Anthrax and Slayer on a European wide tour.

The critical acclaim for this first record saw the band labeled the best Norwegian debut album of
all time
” by Norwegian rock authority Asbjørn Slettemark and “the best Norwegian band since A-Haby Simon Young of Kerrang, the album delivered near perfect marks from magazine reviews
across Europe, US and Australia:

9/10 Metal Hammer (UK), 8.5/10 Terrorizer (UK), 88/100 Aardschok (NL), 4/5 Kerrang! (UK), 4/5 MetalSucks (US), 9/10 Decibel (US), 9/10 Rock Hard (DE), 4/5 Zero Tolerance (AUS).

This worldwide acclaim and success is made all the more remarkable by the fact that the band, unlike most rock band that succeed internationally, they sing in Norwegian.

For their second release, Meir, in March 2013, the band set up their own label, Wørld Recørds, to produce the album and then licenced it to major label partners Sony in the Scandinavian region and RoadRunner Records for the rest of the world.

The second album received even greater acclaim both in Norway and around the world, debuting at #1 on the Norwegian album charts. The band increased their touring base in North America, as well as sold out European and Nordic headline tours (2 nights at Rockefeller) including 21 Norwegian shows.

Meir received album of the week reviews in every major rock publication around the world, and filled the end of year polls in mainstream as well as specialist media.

Highlights included: #2 on SPIN’s Metal Albums of 2013, #2 on Rolling Stones Best Metal Albums of 2013, Rolling Stones 27 Best album’s you didn’t hear, New York Times Best Song of 2013 list, #15 on Stereogum’s Best Albums of 2013 (all genres), #4 on Revolver’s album of the year.

The band is currently working on their third album for release in Spring 2016 and will be touring around the world to support the album from April 2016. 

Skeletonwitch
Skeletonwitch

The drought is over. After years in the wilderness, homegrown heavy metal has finally returned. No longer the domain solely of our European forefathers, metal pure in both delivery and creativity is gaining momentum at breakneck speed in the Western Hemisphere. Leading the charge domestically are Ohio’s sons of Midwestern darkness SKELETONWITCH, who have emerged as forerunners of this new American sound. The ‘WITCH’s mighty, sonic fortress is an amalgamation of classic Bay Area thrash, Scandinavian death/black metal and NWOBHM. Upping the ante from their Prosthetic debut, Beyond the Permafrost, these five gnarly longhairs show no mercy and take no prisoners on their newest long-player, Breathing the Fire, which debuted at #151 on the Billboard Top 200 charts.

SKELETONWITCH brings together the old and sacred elements of true heavy metal, melts them down, and forges them into a brand new monolith of riffage. If you know what’s good for you, you’ll come out and bang your head when SKELETONWITCH comes to your town. Worship the ‘WITCH!

Tombs
Tombs
TOMBS tap into the infinite well of emotion and expression on their astounding new full-length Path of Totality. Recorded by John Congleton (Baroness, Explosions in the Sky), Path of Totality is a massive step forward in songwriting and scope for the trio. Path of Totality finds TOMBS achieving what their previous recordings had always hinted at – an ultimately heavy and nuanced fusion of their di...sparate influences. “Bloodletters” and “Constellations” see the band flex its prodigious muscle; “Vermillion” and “Cold Dark Eyes” wrap arms of blackened misery around the listener, while the profound sadness of “Silent World” and “Passageways” further explores the trio’s UK post-punk influences. With Path of Totality, TOMBS has come into their own as one of the finest heavy bands in the world.
Psychic Limb
Psychic Limb
Psychic Limb is a 4 piece thrash/punk/grind outfit out of Brooklyn, NY. Ex-members of The Assailant (Seattle, WA) and Ramps (Brooklyn, NY). Psychic Limb is releasing their first album "Queens" on Clairvoyant Recordings. Crossed Out/Infest/Discharge fans take a look.
