KVELERTAK Sign With Rise Records And Announce New Album “Splid”

Rise Records has announced the signing of Norwegian rockers KVELERTAK. The band’s debut with the label “Splid” will be released on February 14, and the first taste “Bråtebrann” is now available for you to listen.

“Splid” is KVELERTAK‘s fourth studio album and their first release with vocalist Ivar Nikolaisen, after the departure of Erlend Hjelvik in 2018.

“We are very excited that our new album, ‘Splid’, will be released through Rise Records and we look forward to being a part of the Rise family in the coming years,” comments the band. ‘Splid’ (‘Discord’ in English) is a deep dive into western gluttony, our own stupidity, and the abyss of the earth.”

“Splid” was recorded with Kurt Ballou at Godcity Studio in Salem, Massachusetts.

“Working with Kurt again has been amazing and we’re extremely happy with the production,” the band continues. “We’ve pushed ourselves to the edge this last year — musically, physically, and mentally. The result is one hour of catchy riffs, punk rock, and heavy metal influenced by a world in discord to accompany our way towards Ragnarok.”
