If you haven’t heard it yet, it’s news to you.

The lineup for Temples Festival has been announced with headliners Mayhem performing De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas in full. The fest runs June 2nd through the 5th in Bristol, UK. Other big names on the fest include Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Carcass, Melvins, Mgla, and Gnaw Their Tongues. None of that matters though, because there is a band named Fuk also playing.

Speaking of festivals, Migration Fest (August 12-14 in Olympia, Washington) keeps getting bigger and better. Recent additions Magic Circle and Mizmor now join Panopticon, Mournful Congregation, Krallice, Full of Hell, The Body & Krieg, Thou, Vhol and a bunch of other scary bands. General ticket sales started a few days ago, so if you’re thinking of going, you better hop on that trolley soon. More information can be found on the fest’s website.

Skeletonwitch have released a new song/music video called “Well Of Despair”. I believe this is the first time we’re hearing stuff with the band’s new vocalist Adam Clemens (Wolvhammer). Try to sync up the song with the commercial they starred in.

Kvelertak will be touring the US with Torche and Wild Throne. Their new album Nattesderd will be released on May 13th. Peep the deets:kvelertak

If that wasn’t enough, the band also released a brand new song called “1985”

Metallic hardcore veterans Sworn Enemy (from Queens, New York) have announced that their planned month-long tour with Malevolent Creation has been cancelled. It doesn’t appear that Malevolent Creation has commented on why it was cancelled. I’d hate to guess why.

    That new Kvelertak song had me grinning like an idiot on my drive home yesterday.

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      That artwork has me grinning big time.

      • megachiles

        Makes me want a pet owl.

        • We have Owlswald over here in the comments. I hope you can catch him.

          • Owlswald

            Nobody puts Owlswald in a corner. I’m my own owl.

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          Seriously

          Arik Roper is the man.

    • Those riffs are so catchy! I sent it to a couple of normie friends.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Still don’t get the appeal of this band. The music was way too happy. It sounded like someone was taking the piss via Thin Lizzy.

      • They’re a party band. If you don’t like to party, you won’t like them

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Oh, I like to party, good sir.

          • I was also trying to give Tyree a super easy gif opportunity, but since he didn’t take it…

          • Spear
          • Boom

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Hey Spear, how are you liking Black Tower and Ripper?

          • Spear

            Quite a lot! I actually got that Black Tower album without having listened to much of it, but Ripper was way too good to pass up.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Nice man! I dig both albums as well. Check out Encyrcle on Unspeakable Axe if you get the chance.

          • Spear

            I think I’ve got that on my BC wishlist, but that thing’s so bloated right now… I’ll give it a listen tonight.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            I feel you man, i have to go through and reevaluate my wishlist constantly.

          • Rob M

            That the Black Tower from Canada?…That was a decent album…

            …well, unless youre that guy on MA who gave them a 32%

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            32%?!? That bastard.

      • Saw part of their set about a year ago. Boring.

        • DVRKBEVRD

          meh, i can dig em. cant vouch for live

          • If I remember correctly, they had 3 guitarists too. Why that band needs 3 guitarists is beyond me.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Hahaha. Of course they did. That way they can play their happy riffs with 18 strings. Fucking stupid.

          • Reel bands only need one guitar.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vabnZ9-ex7o

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Very true. A lot of good bands only have one guitarist. Black Sabbath, Cream, Darkthrone…..you want me to go on, Joseph?

          • Black Sabbath, Cream, and Darkthrone should do a tour together.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Dude, I think that would be rad. They could have Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic sit in on some songs too.

          • Yeah! Just exhume Jack Bruce’s corpse and sit him on a chair with a fretless bass while Ginger & Clapton perform. While we’re at it lets exhume Seth Putnam’s corpse as well!

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Yes, and then put it out on DVD. Would sell a BILLION copies.

          • I’d buy 6 copies and jam all 6 discs into the DVD player ruining them all just so I could buy more.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Yeah, and then take a hammer to my player, so I could buy another. I’d go to Walmart, buy a new player and 20 DVDs. It just makes too much sense.

          • HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

          • COAL ROLL

            I want this record badly

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Yeah, it’s not very easy to find.

          • It did only sell 10,000,000 copies in the U.S.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Yeah, I believe I read that somewhere one time. Crazy stuff, bro.

          • COAL ROLL

            I know, but it’s not exactly a bargain either for a nice wax

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Walmart always comes through, bro. Always. I mean, have you checked out their prices?!?!?!?! Insane!

          • COAL ROLL

            FUCK WALMART is selling records now?

          • Haha, I guess so.

          • COAL ROLL
          • There is something about the main riff. Classic!

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            There are lots of killer bands with one guitarist. It’s like an insane amount and shit.

          • Like Lynch Mob, AMIRITE???? hhaahahaaaa
            George Lynch rules

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Sure. Or, Dokken, One Tail, One Head, Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, Immortal, Blue Cheer, Buffalo, Free, Seven Year Bitch, I can keep going….

          • Side note. I am going to see Lynch Mob this summer in a nearby town. They are playing at a indoor go cart track. A INDOOR GO CART TRACK. maxlolz. Should be fun and a intimate setting, though.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Wow. Couldn’t find a better venue?!?!?!!?

          • Dude, I know. Gotta pander to the Nascar/Racing-belt of central ohio, though. Lol.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Well, that’s obvious.

          • Also, Stryper will be there.

          • Of course they will.

          • they would… be

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            You going to jerk off the whole time?

          • Not a Stryper fan at all, actually. Snoozefest if you ask me.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            So it goes.

          • Rush.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            RUSH

          • So you had to one-up me with the all CAPS!?!?!

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Ah shit, my bad man.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            I have remedied the situation.

          • It’s not a big deal brah.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Southern rock bands do that. I also don’t get why bands do it.

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        At least I like Thin Lizzy. The same can’t be said for their new song

      • megachiles

        They’re a blast live! They’ve always reminded me of a louder, more energetic Turbonegro, with less homoerotic innuendo.

  • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

    The new Skeletonwitch sure does bring the riffs, but I haven’t decided if I like the new vocalist yet. He has skills, but not the grime, or beard, of Chance.

    • megachiles

      I’m not totally sold on him either, but let’s give him another Chance.

      • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

        Well done, good sir

    • sweetooth0

      yeah, not feelin’ the new guy’s vocals at all.

      • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

        I think if it was a new band that I wouldn’t mind as much, but the fact that we have 5 Chance records to compare them to makes it hard.

        • sweetooth0

          yep

  • TovH meetup at the Tempels Festival? just look for me when “Big Naturals” take the stage

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      That would be killer!
      Then we would stick around for Agoraphobic Nosebleed and MELVINS.

    • Maybe we’ll get a Fuk/Big Naturals collaboration.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      I guess the name Big Real Titties was taken.

  • That’s cool that Mare is playing big festivals and all but, I’d much rather them be in the studio making a new album. Long overdue.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Fuck it seems that way for all those bands, One Tail, One Head included.

      • Yeah, no shit man. One Tail, One Head is definitely overdue. Bring on new Vemod too!

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Agreed.

          • Goddamn, that little Norwegian scene of bands is incredible. Have you listened to any Dark Sonority?

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Been meaning to. That scene is ridiculous.

          • It’s pretty rad. Just one EP though.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Of course, hahaha.

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          Behexen’s gonna put out new stuff I hear, so might have to wait on that OT,OH even longer.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            They promised info on the new album and a new song “soon”.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Behexen or One tail, One Head?

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Behexen.

          • Ah, yis. Sir Tapir informed me about this.

  • Yay, Sonido Podrido! The new record’s guitar tone is eggcellente and destructivo.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m1Z4fkrADUY

    I’m also happy for Hammerfall, they will publish their new album with Napalm Records in November. And that Skeletonwitch song is p cool, I want to check their older material.

    • iTunes <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross
      • Will check it out tomorrow. This earphones I have today sounds like farts because some fucking malandro robbed mines this monday from my cubicle.

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          That rotten bastard!

        • Get a broken pair of headphones and fill it with Zika-carrying mosquitoes. Mess that malandro up.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Babies with weird deformed heads are rad.

          • Same as trying to survive in South América being a parent of one. Rad!

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Very true.

    • SEASON OF MIST>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Also, Brian Johnson of AC/DC can’t perform so the band had to postpone their concerts. They said they would have a guest singer in his place. I hope it’s the singer for Krokus or Airbourne.

    • “This has been Dad Rock News, I’m JJD, signing out.”

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      It’s hard for me to imagine anyone esle filling those boots.
      It would be a big honor if the dude from Airbourne was chosen. He has a good mix of Johnson and Scott methinks.

      • d00d u liek Airbourne? i’m going to drive down there just to give you a high five in person.

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          Hell yeah! That’s some grade A rock n roll!

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            More like poop n poop.

          • Woah.

          • Double poopy.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            You’re just jealous that McNulty isn’t driving to give you a high five.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Tbf he can’t drive here.

          • i haven’t exhausted my methods of transportation for you yet.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      It will be the original singer, Dave Evans.

      • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

        Is this confirmed?

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          No, just read it on Blabbermouth, that he’s offering to sing. Don’t care anyway, since I never could get into AC/DC.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Hmm, interesting.

            Too much fun involved?

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Nope, same song for 40 years. For playing an SG, the tone is thin. Boring songs. Besides if we’re talking Aussie, I’ll take Buffalo.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross
          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            That whole fucking album is a monster!

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Indeed so. I heard it several years ago when I was digging into some 70s underground hard rock. It was on my “buy this when you find it” list and shortly after that it was in a $5 grab bag I purchased from a local record store. Fuck yeah.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Nice!

          • This was fluckin good, Hoss.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Never heard Buffalo? I’m glad i could be of assistance, GL.

          • gotta agree with this man ^^, doesn’t matter what’s going on the songs can’t be that formulaic

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        That’s actually happening? I’d see thar show.

  • DVRKBEVRD

    im most perturbed by Skeletonwitch grabbing Wolvhammers vocalist. Wolvhammer is/was a million times better than Skeletonwitch.

    new Kvelertak is aight

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      I read that and thought it was a stage name! I’m a dingus

    • Stanley

      Not feeling this new Kvelertak song. I listened to it yesterday and thought it was bad. Today it’s awful. What will it by like by tomorrow?

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Terrible?

        • Stanley

          I don’t intend to find out.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            And you’re a smart man for that.

  • COAL ROLL

    The Skeletonwitch new singer sounds good, but their new guitar tone is shit

    • PostBlackenedWhaleGaze

      That’s kinda how their guitar tone has always sounded. Real trebly

      • COAL ROLL

        I wonder if it’s cuz I’m listening to a youtube vid of the new one and the old stuff on my spotify premium that it sounds like the new one’s guitar tone is oversaturated with that fuzz that I’m not so fond of

    • Stanley

      If you switch the places of “singer” and “guitar tone”, I’d agree with you.

      • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

        Agreed

        • COAL ROLL

          JCM800 + TS808 = expansion

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Looks like these guys just plug and play with JCM2000s
            https://youtu.be/O6XFRmhYHug
            https://youtu.be/9Ztkn-Gd638

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Killer amp.

          • COAL ROLL

            I dunno man, this new one sounded WAY different to me that the old stuff, those are not natural marshall sounds

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            That was really the only thing i could find. They very well could’ve changed it up.
            I need to listen again, first time I was mainly listening to the vocals.

          • COAL ROLL

            it was hard for me to get past this tone and even make it to the vox.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            It is my dream to buy a Marshall JCM stack and then run my horrible cheap metal zone with the level at 10 through the front end. Savagery.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Hahahahahahahaha!

            Solid.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Total necro. Leave nobody alive. Black metal guitar tone should be lethal.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Complete annihilation.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Posers think any metal is depressing. Tr00 black metal krieg war total tone should make posers kill themselves. 666 moonsatan goats and stuff. At this point I can’t tell whether I’m joking or not.

      • COAL ROLL

        I just can’t do the fuzz tone

  • That new Rotten Sound does not disappoint which should shock no one.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      I’m not surprised by that at all Deuce.

      • also, i don’t think one individual in the toilet would turn down new Rotten Sound… same with Gadget.

        • COAL ROLL

          one

        • Everything I’ve heard from the new Gadget so far is 3 habanero flame emojis.

    • But, but, I needed a surprise!

  • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

    Temples is mighty tempting, only I don’t have any UK friends that are that into that kind of band, and Bristol is a long ways away. Oh well.

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      Fly me over, I’ll go with you!

      • frozengoatsheadupanunsarse

        Not on roughly minimum wage alas.

    • Dave Vincent’s Perm

      Every uk metal festival has to be in the bloody south

  • PostBlackenedWhaleGaze

    Lmao, the new Kveletrak sounds like Boston (whom I enjoy) with a screamer. Don’t hate it, but they can do a lot better than this.

    • Dubs

      I compared it to Cheap Trick in the FB group.

      • PostBlackenedWhaleGaze

        Yeah, you can really substitute Boston with Thin Lizzy, Cheap Trick, Kansas, 100 bands from that era with a similar sound. Kveletrak really wear their influences on their sleeves

        • Stanley

          How does a band go from their S/T to this new one in 2 albums? I guess their heart was never in it in the first place.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            I read an interview with the vocalist before they released Meir. He said that at that point they were super-tired with their old songs and were anxious to play the new ones, to get them out. At the time I paid it no mind, figured they’d want to release albums faster – but they haven’t and it just popped into my mind.

          • Stanley

            The S/T came out in 2012 so not that long ago. I think they just like getting Norwegian Grammys.

          • Maybe they just want to have fun and sell records?

          • Stanley

            Exactly. Hence the grammys.

          • That Norseman mascot head was really poorly designed for the wearer.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            You have the best references.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Silly you, Kvelertak was released in 2010

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Hell, even the first North american pressing came out in 2011 through The End recordings.

          • Stanley

            Silly me indeed. The date in my iTunes is wrong. Will fix.

          • Stanley

            Are Kvelertak not metal? They aren’t on MA.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            They sound metal-ish enough to me, but MA is a shithole when it comes to that. “Djent” bands are not metal enough to be there, some more experimental bands (like Those Darn Gnomes) aren’t metal enough to be there and Meshuggah is only there “due to the first albums”

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            MA is a horrible crap place when it comes to categorizing bands. A shitload of bands are refused entry because their “riffing structure” is not metal enough, but at the same time they have no qualms about including Sunn O)))

          • Fun hobby: constantly try to submit Blink 182

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Sounds like a blast to me. I’d try to submit Green Day just to see those nerds over there lose their shit.

          • they surely would have a filter set up or something?

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Sunn O))) is good tho.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Yeah they are pretty good.

          • There is a band named “Those Darn Gnomes”?

          • Dubs

            It’s Christian’s band. They’ve been covered here.

          • I guess I should have remembered them then if they were covered here.

          • Dubs

            Quite.

          • Or because it’s Christian.

          • Hahaha, Ok. I haven’t talked to him for probably half a year. I don’t know anything about him really. Sorry.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            God damn, are you a fucking idiot for not knowing. For shame, bro. For fucking shame.

          • Dubs

            Everyone should know every band we’ve ever covered. And nothing else.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Well, I’m glad that’s been settled.

          • Dubs

            Glad to have you on board with the new protocol.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            I like to be assimilated.

          • Dubs

            Like the Borg. Also, I’m hormonal today. Don’t mind me.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            The pregnancy getting to you still, or is it your lack of butt?

          • Dubs

            Both this time.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            You poor, sad man.

          • yuss, Limp Bizkit is included in the new protocol

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Jimmy, god damn it.

          • Dubs

            Hey, rules are rules.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            These rules are poopy.

          • *Runs for the razors*

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Yes, please die.

          • *Dies*

          • You would surely not be the first to overlook a band mentioned here.

          • Rob M

            …or because the name is just genuinely stupid

          • Dubs

            I just pointed it out because it’s Christian’s band. Sorry for being a dick.

          • No worries bro-face.

          • Rob M

            I think the argument on MA is that theyre a rock band…just with harsher vocals

          • Last Days of Humanity is not on MA. Always found that odd.

          • Rob M

            Theyre really weird about Grind, if they consider it too punk influenced they wont add it to the site

          • Haha, yeah I’ve noticed that. Crust is hardly seen on there.

          • Rob M

            Exactly, theres some kind of crazy golden ratio of punk to metal that cant be exceeded…its all very scientific

          • Yeah, odd.

          • Stanley

            Fair enough. I guess the lines blur all the time and somebody has to make a call.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Ha, at least The Sword took 5 albums.

          • PostBlackenedWhaleGaze

            I really haven’t listened to Meir since it came out. Worried how the rest of the new album will sound.

          • didn’t Ketzer do something similar? l@lz

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Jimmy plz, we don’t talk of it here.

          • Stanley

            Yep, even more egregiously. I speak with my wallet.

  • I have never listened to Skeletonwitch before. It did not dissapoint!

    #toiletconfessions

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      Check out their previous singer
      https://youtu.be/EQlLYfgUtOc

      • I guess the new singer makes them look less like an old bar band. But the old singer has better pipes imho.

        GL

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Bar band?

          • With regards to the face value of the band. Not with regards to the music.

          • those guise look strong, probably have moved their fair share of pool tables

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          Good man, GL.

  • Stanley
    • I saw this posted this morning. I need to check this out during lunch.

      • Stanley

        I’ve played it about 5 times. It does not disappoint.

        • Killer, I liked the songs that you recommended a while back. That artwork though, goddamn!

          • Stanley

            The record sounds like the artwork.

    • The riffs are riffs that I would call great riffs. Thanks Stan!

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        Thank S(a)tan

      • Stanley

        Check out the solo towards the end of Transis.

        • If it does not have mad amounts of tremolo picking I am going to be disappointed.

          • Stanley

            Then you’ll be sad.

          • The solo was pgood!

          • Stanley

            It was a little surprising.

  • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

    SWORN ENEMY FROM QUEENS, NEW YORK! MOTHERFUCKEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRR!

    Damn, those guys still around?

  • 365ChaosRiddenDays

    The new singer for Skeletonwitch does a fine job with his poisonous voice and the song seems pretty infectious.

  • Allegaeon is likely almost done with the record. They’ve been posting studio videos for some time.

  • All that really matters right now is that Wormed is streaming their new album. http://decibelmagazine.com/blog/2016/3/7/wormed-krighsu-album-premiere

    • *stops everything — even “In Times” by Enslaved — to listen*

      • It’s not fair to every other band how fucking good they are.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      Mjeh.

      • So you like Alterbeast, Unhuman, and Killitorous, but not this band? You are a strange bear indeed.

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          I dicked the last album , but only one of the pre-release tracks tickled me. Going to give this some time… eventually.

          • You “dicked” it huh?

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Right in the hole in the middle of the disc.

          • ouch

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            u got a tiny dick too.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            U would know

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Ur my tiny dick buddy.

          • let me pet you and i’ll call Jack Bauer a bad name.
            if it’s any consolation, the new Wormed is way better than the last one (detective skills here)

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            *purrs*
            *realizes is bear*
            *bears don’t purr*
            *purrs*

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      Pooped.

    • CT-12

      Hey man, I think you might dig these guys. If you like what you hear, they’re going to be releasing a new EP soon as well. https://thedevilsofloudun.bandcamp.com/album/entering-oblivion

  • Rob M

    If I ever wanted to know what Journey would sound like with harsh vocals, I now have my answer…so, thanks Kvelertak…I think

  • Eliza

    The new Skeletonwitch is great.

  • sweetooth0

    I have to say the new Skeletonwitch stuff isn’t winning me over at all. The new guy doesn’t hold a candle to Chance Garnette. Basically it sounds like Skeletonwitch fronted by “insert generic raspy hardcore yelling guy” so it loses a good deal of personality they had before. Too bad.

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      Well put.

    • someone of us quit after Beyond the Permafrost, so i’ll give you credit for sticking around that long!

      • sweetooth0

        I actually like “Forever Abomination” the best. Chance also signed all of my records from “Beyond the Permafrost” to “Serpents Unleashed”. I guess that also adds to my disappointment at his replacement, he seemed like a cool guy. My favorite one is where he wrote EAT PUSSY in big letters on it. Pure class.

        • my buddies love Skeletonwitch, they are a riff-lover’s band for sure. wasn’t Chance a pretty charismatic, funny stage man? the “EAT PUSSY” seems inline with his personality

          • sweetooth0

            yup, he was great. And he seemed really laid back after the show, so it was odd to me reading about he was this terrible alcoholic drug fueled party animal that was always fucking things up for the band. Didn’t get that from meeting him at all.

  • CT-12

    I’m going to both Migration Fest and Las Vegas Psycho Fest this year. Hit me up if you wanna grab a drink or something!

    • oh man, i wish i was! would be an honor to meet the elusive crazy taco!

  • Super Nintendo Chalmers

    That new Kvelertak is for people who like metal, but feel risqué wearing an Iron Maiden shirt in public.

    So fucking bad.

    • as somebody who likes the occasional bad music, my interest is now piqured.
