The Press Release:
Nuclear Blast is proud to announce that ex-KVELERTAK frontman, Erlend Hjelvik, has started a solo metal band HJELVIK and has signed with Nuclear Blast Records!
Jens Prueter, Head of A&R at Nuclear Blast Europe, adds:
“It’s been 10 years ago when I first saw Erlend with Kvelertak in my hometown Dortmund in Germany. Their debut album was just out for a couple of months and on heavy rotation on my turntable. I was blown away by the raw energy of his stage performance and ten years later it is an honor to start working with him on HJELVIK. He has not lost the high energy and is bringing his unique mix of black metal, hardrock and punk to a new level. Welcome to Nuclear Blast and onward to Hel!”
HJELVIK also reveals he will release his debut album Welcome to Hel later this year.
