Kvelertak  


Media darlings Kvelertak came out of nowhere in 2010 with their self-titled album, and now three albums in, continue to garner praise for their incongruous blending of extreme metal and upbeat rock'n'roll. Within the metal community there seems to be a bit of a backlash against this band, possibly because said media darlings insist on referring to Kvelertak as a black metal band with punk/rock influences, when in reality it's the other way around. The black metal influences are scant, limited to an occasional opening riff and the shrieking vocals of Erlend Hjelvik, and even those vocals aren't really black. But if it's loud, infectious, punky rock you're after, Kvelertak excels.
