Norwegian iconoclasts Kvelertak are fresh off being named the first heavy-metal SPIN Essential of 2013, writer Kory Grow calling them "free-wheeling," "rollicking," "fun" and other decidedly non-scary things, all showcasing that these guys are more interested in pushing boundaries than thresholds. Thier latest video, for the eponymous "Kvelertak" follows the band to London, Cologne, Paris, and Oslo, showcasing their sweaty, hair-whipping, tattooed, guitar-string-biting, owl-masked mayhem. In the video we learn, yes, Norwegians flip the bird too. Says director Stian Andersen, "To direct my first music video with one of the best rock acts on the block is nothing less than a career high and a dream come true!" Watch the clip and enjoy some of this craziness in person on their upcoming American tour with Cancer Bats and Black Tusk.
