In 2004 VREID arose from the ashes of WINDIR after the tragic perishing of Terje ‘Valfar’ Bakken. From the very start VREID’s mission has been to explore new musical paths and soundscapes. They continuously push their music to the limits and continue to grow musically.
This adventures journey has resulted in nine albums, brought them to twenty-five countries, and have had them playing over five hundred shows.
From its tumultuous inception, the Norwegian Metal scene has always been about pioneering. Leading the black ‘n roll movement in Norway, VREID are the perfect example of that.
After almost τhirty years playing together in ULCUS and WINDIR, and almost twenty years under VREID‘s mighty banner, the Sognametal brigade are back with bombastic new track “Flammen” via Indie Recordings. The first new musical output from VREID since their critical acclaimed “Wild North West” project from 2021.
“Flammen: (eng. – the flame) shows the true DNA of VREID’s musical universe, where classic heavy rock ruthlessly intertwines with atmospheric Nordic noir. It is the result of spontaneous combustion of creativity; and was written, recorded, and released just within weeks, in the early summer days of 2023.
A standalone song that truly embody a band where the flame of passion burns stronger than ever. Life is now!
