kvlt is a compliment, the definition is some metal music that is worthy.
Epitomising the musical ideals of sub-underground black metal - the kind of stuff that comes out in limited editions of 300 through vinyl-only labels based in a cave in Belarus. The exact requirements of kvltness vary depending on who you talk to, but usually involve icy, impenetrable production, black-and-white cover art, and concepts drawn from black magic, pagan myths or out-and-out nihilism.
Like anyone who takes art seriously these days, kvltists are the target of much mockery even from fellow extreme metal fans.
"This new Nattefrost album is kvlt as fuck!"
Deriving from the word "cult", kvlt is spelled like it is in order to create a medieval vibe.
This is because it is used to speak positively of a metal band (particularly of the death/black metal variety) for their cult underground status. Is also applied the same way as tr00
"Edvard Grieg was kvlt"
Expression used in the extreme metal music scene in reference to an obscure band or a rare recording.
This is a kvlt demo recording that went out of print ten years ago.
Pronounced as 'cult
'. kvlt is a way in the blackmetal scene - amongst other scences in which the philosophy houses that if less people know the work of art you want/pretend to like because less people know it your penis is bigger, to say that a work of art is terrible obscure and to live under the believe that that automatically makes a work of art better.
This philosphy is a stunning piece of reasoning and has kept me under the believe since I was 14 that the x-zillion types of unknown genres and obscure music I listen to is in fact better because it doesn't even sound like music anymore and it still works perfect.
So get your kvltness today.
