NEWS: Kvelertak Announce New Vocalist
Norwegian metal band Kvelertak have announced their new vocalist recently. The band have introduced Ivar Nioklaisen as their new vocalist. He will be replacing Erlend Hjelvik who recently left the band.
The band commented on having Ivar in the band:
We are immensely excited to have Ivar on board, and what he will bring to the band.
Kvelertak has had a history with Ivar since the bands early days. Both as a tour companion with his other bands (Silver, The Good, the Bad and the Zugly), and as the guest vocalist on ‘Blodtørst’. Ivar is the frontman we could hope for, and nothing is more natural for us than for him to take over the throne.
Ivar commented on his new gig:
I’ve been a huge fan of Kvelertak ever since I first saw them nearly ten years ago. It’s an honor to be a part of the band! I will not try to copy Erlend. Erlend is a lion. I’m just a small rat. But this rat is pissed off, infectious, and full of pestilence—ready to take this machine to new heights!
