HOLD THE FUCKING PHONE: New Jams from The Bronx and Kvelertak Album Details

FUCK YEAH GIRLIES. FUCK. YEAH.

Not only am I finished my exams and preparing to get heavily inebriated, I also found out about a new track from The Bronx and the track listing from the upcoming Kvelertak album. I am giddy with excitement, giddy I tell you!

——————————————————————————–

I love The Bronx. The first time I ever heard or saw them was at a Warped Tour several years ago. I was absolutely fucking floored by the sheer energy they performed with, even though they were only playing to a small crowd. After that I quickly started devouring their three self-titled albums and have had them in pretty much constant rotation since.

However, after 2008’s album, they decided to go an entirely different route with their music and proceeded to pump out two records of mariachi music under the alias Mariachi El Bronx. While I’m not the biggest fan of this type of music, I have a massive amount of respect for a band willing to say, “Fuck it. We want to make mariachi music and that’s what we’re going to fucking do.”, especially considering the jump they’re making between genres.

Now The Bronx have finally jumped back to street they started on, making piss ‘n’ vinegar punk rock. The new album, “IV” is slated for release in February of next year and the first single, “Ribcage” has been released to pleasure your earholes.

The Bronx have always had a slightly eclectic sound, they were playing punk rock first and foremost but they weren’t afraid to go a bit farther. “Ribcage” showcases a more melodic tone, with a comfortable familiar sound. This smoother sound might have something to do with the two albums of mariachi but either way it’s still The Bronx and the track still shreds.

If news of a new Bronx album had me shivering with excitement, a track list and release date for the new Kvelertak album has be quaking at the knees with excitement. Their 2010 debut is still one of my top albums, with near constant rotation on my iPod. It was the perfect combination of scathing black metal and sweet, sweet rock ‘n’ roll grooves. Seriously good shit.

Today they not only gave us the name (“Meir” = More in Norwegian) and the release date (March 2013), they also gave us the track listing with a brief description of each.

KVELERTAK – MEIR (Out March 2013, date TBC)

ÅPENBARING
A feather clad man breaks into your skull. He has such sights to show you!

SPRING FRA LIVET
When the walls of life are closing in, you best run for the hills!

TREPAN
Trepanning is a surgical intervention in which a hole is drilled into the human skull, releasing evil spirits.

BRUANE BRENN
Burn the bridges, kill the jailer, live life on the run!

EVIG VANDRAR
An unholy pact has doomed this man to walk the earth until the end of time.

SNILEPISK
This dark tyrants whip is made of hair and flesh. He will leave scars across the land.

MÅNELYST
In the cold light of the moon you become possessed by evil.

NEKROKOSMOS
A green meteor of iron strikes the graveyard. An intergalactic traveller won’t leave until everything around him is dead.

UNDERTRO
Nothing matters. We’re not even a grain of sand in Cosmos.

TORDENBRAK
There is a storm coming. All you can do is pray!

KVELERTAK
Like the Asgardsreia we will have all the mortals in our way join our cavalcade.

Guh. So excited. Need to change my pants. I’ll be back later with a review from the newest album from The Hives!
