Norwegian rockers KVELERTAK will release their new album, “Endling”, on September 8 via Rise Records/Petroleum Records. The official lyric video for the LP’s second single, “Skoggnagr”, can be seen below.

KVELERTAK comments: “‘Skoggangr’ was the first song we wrote for ‘Endling’. It’s a song about Helmut Von Botnlaus, whose life history and written records have inspired many of the lyrics on the album. It all takes place in the heathlands and mountain area of the south-west coast of Norway, where Helmut was born. This is where he spent most of his secluded life, living off what the earth can provide him with while fighting anyone trying to destroy the surrounding nature. Wind turbine and real estate developers, look out!”

Thematically, “Endling” continues on the path of 2020’s critically acclaimed “Splid” — which received press accolades from Stereogum, MetalSucks, Kerrang!, Revolver, Invisible Oranges, BLABBERMOUTH.NET, Guitar World, and more — by delving further into local lore and legend, though guitarist Vidar Landa summed it up best. “On ‘Endling’, we tell the stories of the extinct and dying men and women of Norway. Old and new myths, culture, and rituals come to life — the folklore that doesn’t fit a TV series concept. Vikings and trolls are for television. This is the real deal.”

“As the sun fell, at the time when oxen are unyoked, following the trail cut by the footsteps of Rasmus Vardal, the marauders of rock came riding again, screaming Kielland is dead, long live Kielland!,” exclaims the band.
