New Details on the New Kvelertak Album!
Hoo-ray! We still don’t know which label will release Kvelertak’s sophomore effort, but we do now know plenty of other info about the album, thanks to a new posting on the band’s Facebook page. It will be out in March, and it will be called Meir. And you know what that means — yup, Kvelertak have finally gone ahead and written a concept album about Golda Meir. In fact, I’m sure reading the below track listing and explanation of each song’s meaning, originally posted on the band’s Facebook page, will only confirm my suspicion:
A feather clad man breaks into your skull. He has such sights to show you!
SPRING FRA LIVET
When the walls of life are closing in, you best run for the hills!
Trepanning is a surgical intervention in which a hole is drilled into the human skull, releasing evil spirits.BRUANE BRENN
Burn the bridges, kill the jailer, live life on the run!EVIG VANDRAR
An unholy pact has doomed this man to walk the earth until the end of time.SNILEPISK
This dark tyrants whip is made of hair and flesh. He will leave scars across the land.MÅNELYST
In the cold light of the moon you become possessed by evil.
A green meteor of iron strikes the graveyard. An intergalactic traveller won’t leave until everything around him is dead.
Nothing matters. We’re not even a grain of sand in Cosmos.
There is a storm coming. All you can do is pray!
Like the Asgardsreia we will have all the mortals in our way join our cavalcade.
I see references in there to Hellraiser, Iron Maiden, and possibly The Dark Knight Rises, but nothing about Golda Meir. Hm. Oh well. I’m sure the album’s relationship to Israel’s fourth prime minister will soon be readily apparent!
