Kvelertak has shared another new track from their upcoming third album Nattesferd, out May 13 via Roadrunner. The Norwegian metal band previously released “1985,” a riff-heavy Thin Lizzy-inspired number, and today they’ve shared an even bigger bruiser, “Berserkr,” via Stereogum (which accompanied a lengthy essay about genre and Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some). This one’s a bit more metal and less classic rock, its rhythm and melody pulling from both crust punk and black metal, with a melodic sensibility that Kvelertak does so well. Listen to the Kvelertak “Berserkr” stream below.
