Norwegian outfit Kvelertak are down a member in the midst of their North American tour, but have moved quickly to find a replacement. Drummer Kjetil Gjermundrod had to bow out of the run after experiencing significant pain in his arm. Rather than continue, the drummer returned home to seek treatment and Kvelertak recruited former Against Me! drummer Jay Weinberg to pound the skins for the remainder of the run.
Having experienced a massive groundswell from their self-titled debut album, Norwegian metallers Kvelertak were destined to have their sophomore release examined by the world's largest magnifying glass.
