Kvelertak have posted a new song titled, “Crack of Doom” featuring frontman Troy Sanders of Mastodon. The track is taken from their upcoming album Splid, which drops February 14 via Rise Records. This is also the first album to feature new vocalist, Ivar Nioklaisen since Erlend Hjelvik’s depature.
The band commented on working with Sanders and how it came to be:
“We sent Troy a demo of the song because there were a couple of parts we felt would fit his voice very well and lift the song. Luckily, he liked the track and was keen to do it. He got some scratch vocal tracks and some guidelines but was free to do it however he wanted. What we got back was even better than what we could hope for. We’re extremely proud to have him featured on this song, and with Troy being American, it felt natural to just do the whole thing in English.”
