Kvelertak - Meir FLAC album

Kvelertak delivers once again with high energy, solid production, anthemic melodies, catchy choruses, and a tastefully executed blend of influences: rock 'n' roll, black metal, hardcore punk, and heavy metal

Meir is the second studio album by Norwegian heavy metal band Kvelertak. It was released on 25 March 2013 (March 26 in the US) via Sony Music Scandinavia in Scandinavia, Roadrunner Records in the rest of the world, and by Indie Recordings on vinyl. The album was produced by Kurt Ballou. Meir (Norwegian for "more") was recorded at GodCity Studios in Salem, Massachusetts, United States and produced by Kurt Ballou of Converge. The cover artwork was created by John Dyer Baizley of the band Baroness

However, Kvelertak have flourished despite pressure from all sides, resulting in the metal-meets-party rock release 'Meir. Perhaps the most notable characteristic of 'Meir' i. el. ts character. While definitively Norwegian to the trained ear, 'Meir' acts as an injection of fresh blood into a saturated world of metal, where character is commonly abandoned in favor of allowing trends to dictate one's creative direction. Meir' drags a bit towards the end, but the album is absolutely worth your time. For a sonic experience that will clobber your face, pop your eyes wide-open, light a fire under your feet and leave your neck sore, 'Meir' is the recommended prescription.

Kvelertak's second album, aptly titled Meir ("More"), doesn't tweak the basic formula. The band has jumped from Brooklyn indie the End Records to Warner Music Group subsidiary Roadrunner- a label that was ground zero for early-90s death metal and currently backs Opeth, Slipknot, and Rush- but otherwise, they've retained key aspects of Kvelertak: stunning production, almost like an extra-beefy Steve Albini job, courtesy of Converge's Kurt. Ballou, eerily elegant cover art from Baroness's John Baizley and a wholesale avoidance of English

Known dubiously in some circles as "hipster-metal", Kvelertak draws from a broad palette of influences. Maybe this multifaceted approach lends to the chagrin of dedicated, sub-genre obsessed acolytes; the liberal infusion of hardcore and black metal with classicist hard rock riffing brings a much-needed injection of variation to some otherwise well entrenched genres. But no matter which direction they sway, the Norwegian six-piece does nothing but embrace the essence of fun-loving punk rock.

Couple of issues with the vinyl:- The production is really compressed compared the S/T album. Everything is much more on the same level, which is a complete waste. No idea whether the CD version suffers from the same.- This is not the quietest vinyl. The second (purple) record seems to be worse than the first. Looks good, sounds bad.- I find "audiophile" 2xLP pressings to be very obnoxious. There's only 49 minutes of music here, does it really have to be spread over two records at 33rpm? I'd say this one is for collectors only.
