It's been a while since I've listened to such a nice melodic punk/hard rock album, without ever being too generic or looking like a fucked-up remake of something.

The Norwegian band Kvelertak will probably never go back to their original level but they offered us a highly edible album full of good songs, efficient riffs without the whole thing running out of steam.

Damn this album is amazing. The riffs here are nothign to scoff at, neither are the vocals. The song structures here are some of the best ive heard on a modern punk album. Please give this thing a chance, its really original with its blend of punk and black metal.

Sadly though, what holds me back here from loving everything about this album is that the band’s personality has died down a bit.
