The Norwegian sextet KVELERTAK is back with a new tune "1985" taken from the upcoming album "Nattesferd", out 5/13.
KVELERTAK music is rooted d-beat and black metal, with alot of punkish attitude, but with the new tune "1985" it draws more from the classic old school hard rock like THIN LIZZY and AC/DC than DISCHARGE or DARKTHRONE. Sounds interesting, looking forward to hear the new album.
Today's tune "1985", taken from the album, Nattesferd - available for pre-order April 8 on Roadrunner Records.
According to a statement from the band, the song’s title refers to a setting much more ominous than the tone implied in the music:
Think of George Orwell’s 1984 instead of Taylor Swift’s 1989. Its lyrics depict a cold and (not so) distant future where technology and surveillance have erased all forms of individuality and critical thinking. Needless to say, everything was better before — can somebody hit the rewind button already?
This coming April the band will embark on a month long tour together with TORCHE, MUTOID MAN and WILD THRONE.
