Kvelertak have released a video for their track Svartmesse.

It’s taken from the Norwegian band’s third album Nattesferd, which was released in May via Roadrunner Records. They previously issued a promo for the title track.

The band say: “Check out our brand new video for Svartmesse. It’s made by our good friend Torjus Forre Erfjord who has previously made the videos for Blodtorst and Evig Vandrar.

“As well as featuring his own unique style of animation, this video has a darker and more sinister tone that goes hand in hand with the lyrics of the song.”

Announcing the album release earlier this year, frontman Erlend Hjelvik said: “However cliche it may sound, I’m not afraid to say that this is our best one yet. An exquisite smorgasbord of riffs infused with everything between the best of classic rock and heavy metal.

“I’m certain it will blow the minds of both old and new fans.”

Kvelertak have a UK tour lined up for the winter, with Skeletonwitch in support.
