14:31 - 神 The odd imbalance of ration in between guys and gals has to be improved by MS
14:15 - 神 Their "war chant" is good at dealing with fishes only
14:09 - 神 Whatever it is, never trust one ball, trust our own balls better, 1 ball dirty, 2 balls horny ! Mathematically, 2-balls is better than 1-ball.
14:05 - The Vacuous Rom The Icelandic people have a wicked war chant they've been using too.. If you haven't heard of it by now.
14:00 - The Vacuous Rom England chokes regularily anyway. Iceland had an awsome qualification round, even beating out the Dutch. They get dominated in most contests.. but they can find a way to score. Which is all that matters.
13:33 - 神 I guess you didn't bet then...a lot of people dumped big sum of money on this game and didn't go to work on the next day, ha ha..
13:13 - Marcel Hubregtse Nothing surprising about Iceland beating England if one had followed the qualification matches by Iceland more closely.
It's pretty amusing when people try labeling black metal bands/fans as elitist, because these days that stereotype of the genre's bands and followers as striving to maintain that "trve and kvlt" attitude falls pretty easily when one just looks at the facts. In the past decade, black metal seems to have been branching out in all possible directions, incorporating seemingly any potential influences into the core of its traditional formula. Further testament to this increasing evolution comes in the form of Norway's Kvelertak, whose sound can best be described as some strange blackened pop punk of sorts. So as a disclaimer: if you're one of those people that think the aesthetics of black metal all boil down to corpsepaint, howling to the moon in ancient forests, and anti-Christianity, you'll probably want to go elsewhere. Otherwise, if you're someone like me who absolutely loves the ever-increasing creativity of the genre, then please continue.
This isn't really an album you break down the intricacies of (that's not to say there aren't any as the hybrid of styles is uncanny and very well executed). "Meir", much like their debut, is just good old-fashioned, ass-kicking fun. It's infectiously catchy, brutal at times, but most importantly it's just a blast to listen to. Roll around town with the windows down and a few buddies rockin' out to this shit and you'd be appreciating it at its fullest. I'm usually rather "high brow" in my taste but this shit is just too fun not to enjoy :-) Can't wait for the shitshow thats gonna be Kvelertak and Cancer Bats!
No other band manages to mix hardcore punk, hard rock and black metal in one melting pot to provide such a fine (and fun!) music. I liked their debut a bit more, but it might have been for the feeling of novelty. "Meir" didn't give a slap in the face, but this fact didn't prevent me from taking a great pleasure from listening to this album.
