Kvelertak ticket give away

Kvelertak at the Rock And Roll Hotel

The wild Norwegian band Kvelertak will be playing their first ever concert in the Washington DC area when they come to the Rock & Roll Hotel on Sunday, May 19th, 2013. The last time they headlined a US tour the closest they came to the area was Philadelphia so I drove up there to see them. They were totally insane live and well worth all the driving! I want to make sure as many people get to check this band out as possible so this week on DCHeavyMetal.com we’re giving away a pair of tickets to a lucky reader of the site. To enter just tell me why you want to go to this show in the comments section at the end of this post. At 5pm EST on Friday, May 17th, 2013, the contest will close and a winner will be chosen at random (using Random.org) from all valid entries to get the free pair of seated tickets to the show. If I don’t hear from the winner within 24 hours then I’ll randomly pick another person to get the tickets, however please don’t enter if you know you can’t go. Be sure to enter with a valid email address you check regularly so I can contact you if you win. Don’t worry, win or lose I won’t add you to any email lists or anything like that, I hate spam too. If you enter more than once then all of your entries will be disqualified. If you can’t wait to see if you win the tickets, or the contest is already over when you read this, you can buy them for $15 from Ticket Alternative here.

Kvelertak is a rock/punk/metal band from Norway that packs every song with tons of high energy riffs. Hell even their transitions are catchy. They have found the perfect blend of rock, punk, thrash and even black metal and if you don’t get excited listening to these guys you might not have a pulse! They put on a great live show that you won’t want to miss and this show is a perfect chance for us in the DC area to finally see them live. All of their songs are in Norwegian but it doesn’t matter if you know the language or not cause music this great is the universal language! Check out the animated video of their song Blodtørst (which means bloodlust in Norwegian) posted below and watch the blood flow! Also on this tour is the Toronto based punk rock band Cancer Bats and the Savannah, Georgia sludge metal trio Black Tusk. The local support is provided by Black Clouds, a dark and moody rock band with a great light show. Now watch these videos by each band playing this show and give me your reason for wanting to go to this awesome show. It shouldn’t be hard to think of one!


  1. Kvelertak because they blend so many styles together seamlessly.

  2. Why? I love every single band on this lineup, INCLUDING the local openers Black Clouds, which I met back in January at the Corrections House show. Plus also, I have no more money for shows. So yeah, I should win.

  3. I want to see this show because I expect Kvelertak to be just a flat out entertaining show. Additionally, I’ve managed to miss Black Tusk everytime they’ve come around on Set The Dial and haven’t seen them since Chicago with COC. Send me, I’m poor!

  4. I just discovered Kvelertak and found them to be kick ass. I’d love to go see them live and at a new (to me) venue.

  5. Because I’ve played Meir 168 times since it came out.

  6. They provide a wonderful mix like you mentioned above, also I’m a huge Black Tusk fan and like the popular vote, too poor to go…

  7. I want to fucking party and have a crazy time with Kvelertak. That and I would love to see Black Tusk finally.

  8. I want to go to this show because all the bands on this line up rule! I have yet to see any of them live, and I love going to shows at Rock & Roll Hotel. That place is fucking awesome!

  9. Because I have seen every tour they have had in the states thus far so It would be nice to not have to drive hours and hours/ take an airplane to go see them this time. Hail Kvelertak!

  10. One of the best band that have come out in recent years.

  11. because I like to headbang, drink beer and eat falafel

  12. My reason? I want to see every single band on the bill. Plus I think Meir is my favorite album of 2013 so far.

  13. Because Kvelertak is awesome live. Saw them last year in Austin and it was great. I also like Black Tusk and Black Clouds as well.

  14. I’ve never seen Kvelertak live — listened to Meir and love it. Wanna see them and go wild

  15. Because I am most intrigued by the prospect of seeing these bands for the first time..

  16. Want to ask the band where they got the inspiration to have pigeons defecating on a nude girl for their album cover.

  17. Because I want to rock the fuck out to awesome fucking bands!

  18. I discovered them about a month ago and got super hooked. Plus, they really seem like the kind of band who would be at least three times better live.

  19. I wanna see them live and sing along in Norwegian!


  21. I like going to metal shows! |m|

  22. This is a seriously killer lineup, front to back! I’ve never seen Kvelertak live before, really looking forward to this and would love to go free — just means $15 more to spend on merch!


  24. I want to see them as a headliner and play a ton from the new album because it totally rips!

  25. I saw them in Philadelphia and they were amazing. I would love to win the tickets so I can see them again!

  26. I want to go because they totally rule. Plus it’s my only night off this week and going to a kick ass show will be the way to spend a great night. Plus it’s still basically around the time of my birthday. :P
