KVELERTAK released a limited-edition, deluxe CD/DVD re-issue of their genre-defying self-titled debut via Prosthetic Records late last month in North America. The package includes four live audio tracks, two demos, three music videos, five live videos, documentaries, extended artwork, a poster and more. Produced by Kurt Ballou and mixed by Alan Douches with artwork by John Baizley and guest appearances by Hoest (Taake), Andreas Tylden (JR Ewing, Altaar), Ivar Nikolaisen (Silver), and Ryan McKenney (Trap Them), Kvelertak was certified Gold in Norway and one of 2010’s most acclaimed underground releases. The new deluxe version is limited to 5,000 copies worldwide. .
