CRITIC REVIEWS

Throughout the album Kvelertak mix the earworm and the extreme perfectly and, for now, the formula seems to be holding up well.

Spin

Restraint is the order of the day: While their debut had enough meatballs-to-the-wall ragers to fill a fjord, this one highlights the group's songwriting skills.

Pitchfork

Meir isn't the magnum opus Kvelertak clearly have in them, but there's enough brilliance here to indicate that LP three or four very well might be.

Meir is a big, brash hardcore album that has feet both in the pools of metal and punk. Everything about it is anthemic and huge. It's both entertaining and emotionally epic. It's certainly struck a nerve with both camps, and it deserves the praise it's been getting, for sure. It's a pretty fulfilling listen, and I'm glad I finally got around to it.
Purchasing Meir from Amazon helps support Album of the Year. Or consider a donation?
