Black Moth – Anatomical Venus

Kvelertak – Nattesferd
Ah, I thought I could see the silhouette of an owl in the sky…somewhere in the ice-clad mountains of Stavanger, Norway, six mighty warriors have broken free, scraped the cold from their beards and checked shirts, grabbed their weapons (4 guitars, a drum kit and a mic) and have returned to bring the rock ‘n roll metal party train back.
Black Years – Black Years II
There’s something incredibly engaging about Black Years, stretched over the three tracks on offer on this 7″ EP – they’re not afraid to mix up their sound, catering for all on this brief, yet memorable slab of punk rock wax.
