Kvelertak’s Latest Album “Splid” Inspired a Video Game and a New EP



Calling all metal fans and gamers!

 Norwegian metallers KVELERTAK have immortalized their latest album SPLID in video game form and beyond.

Game of Doom arrives on May 13. It takes fans and singer Ivar Nikolaisen on an epic quest through a retro-style maze where they are tasked with finding the other band members, as well as defeating the ghost of Tagholdt, who haunts a local museum and is a character from the song “Fanden ta dette hull!” 

The band says, “Your favorite superheroes are finally back — in a game where you can swing a REAL axe!”

Watch the game trailer here.

In addition to Game of Doom, the band is also dropping the Splid: Game Of Doom EP, which features four 8-bit versions of songs from Splid that you can hear throughout the game. Get it here.

The game is available here for Apple users and here for Android users.SPLID: GAME OF DOOM EP TRACK LISTING:“Bråtebrann” (Game of Doom Version)
“Crack of Doom”(Game of Doom Version)
“Discord” (Game of Doom Version)
“Fanden ta dette hull!” (Game of Doom Version) 

Upon its early 2020 release, Splid debuted at No. #1 in the band’s native Norway. The album was featured on many year-end “Best Of” lists from top tastemaker and rock media outlets, including Consequence, Kerrang!Metal Hammer, The Pit, and Loudwire.

Press praise for Splid was universal, far, and wide.

Stereogum hailed the record as “enormously fun, friendly rage-out music, music as giddy as it is ferocious. That sound must be a tough one to figure out, since literally nobody else has pulled it off,” while AV Club said, “It’s all pleasure all the time, just with somehow even bigger riffs.” Consequence enthused that it “churns out raging banger after banger, allowing for the record to roar with metal bliss. The creativity expressed in Splid is matched by its intensity, as Kvelertak embrace the metal spirit throughout the album.”

No wonder the band was able to turn the music into a video game!

Oh, and ICYMI: Watch the “Crack of Doom” video, which features Mastodon’s Troy Sanders, here.
