Trying to define the sound of Norwegian six-piece Kvelertak is like sitting through an entire Anal Cunt record: difficult, pointless, and damn near impossible. Might as well try, though: Take the urgency of classic punk rock, mix it with the snarl of black metal, toss in some AC/DC and translate it all into Norwegian. But even that doesn't do them justice. Riding high off the hype received from topping a dozen or so year-end best-of lists, these guys are a breath of fresh air amid a sea of try-hards. Fuck genre boundaries, this band does it all. Headlining this show is Southern-fried sludge-metal trio Weedeater, the perfect comedown from a couple of confusingly chaotic openers. KEVIN DIERS
