Norwegian Black & Roll veterans VREID are now premiering a live video for the song “Milorg”, which was recorded during the band’s unique livestream event, ‘In the Mountains of Sognametal’ in June.
In other news, the band has finished writing their 9th full-length album. The recordings will start in autumn, with the aim to release the new record in the first half of 2021 via Season of Mist.
VREID will also be on the frontline for reopening the concert scene in Norway. On August 15th, the Norwegian black ‘n rollers will perform a special show at the legendary Rockefeller venue in Oslo. This will be the first metal show in the venue since the Covid-19 closure. On this night, VREID will also launch their first official beer crafted by the band’s guitarist Stian “Strom” Bakketeig and Balder Brewery. The show sold out immediately, and an extra show has been added.
Founder and bass player Jarle ‘Hváll’ Kvåle comments: “These are strange and weird times for everyone. For VREID, we have done as we always do, march onwards. I have been working hard on new material for the last months. I started working on new stuff in the last years, but in these past months things have fallen into place and we will go into the studio soon. I have such a great feeling about the new material, expect an early 2021 release and expect a dark and raw brew.
Talking about brew, in August we launch our own VREID Beer. It’s a cooperation with our local Balder Brewery and it’s crafted by our own beer wizard Stian. We’re launching the beer when we perform two shows at Rockefeller in Oslo, on August 15th. This will be the first metal show they do as part of their reopening and we can’t wait to get back out on that stage.
This week things are happening too, as we release a video from the streaming session we did at my mountain farm. The response was completely overwhelming, so we decided to release a video for the track “Milorg”. During autumn and winter we will have plenty of new an old:-) news for you all. Fingers crossed that we can return to touring in 2021. Stay strong, act reasonable and enjoy metal.”
