Kvelertak’s Vidar Landa on The MetalSucks Podcast #506
Vidar Landa of the mighty Kvelertak is our guest for this week’s episode of The MetalSucks Podcast! During our chat, we discuss the band’s journey to create their fifth album Endling and go over some of the folklore and stories that inspired the songs — some of which include the celebration that would follow funerals in older times. We also discuss why gathering together is very important for the entire human race, how consuming the same popular media is having a positive effect on society, and why it’s so important to stick to what you know in a live setting for rock and metal bands.
Petar and Sylvia discuss Flotsam and Jetsam being honest about why they are canceling their North American run in September, Corey Taylor stating he’s in constant pain while traveling on the road, how difficult it is to continue in aggressive music after a certain age, and Steve Harris’s comments of Iron Maiden’s focus on quality touring over quantity.
