Vreid hail from Sogndal, Norway. That's the same town where the legendary band, Windir, sprang up to prominence. As a matter of fact Vreid are a spin-off band from Windir. The saga of Vreid runs something like this. In the mid-1990's, a local musician nicknamed Valfar, was having success with his one man band, Windir. After the turn of the millennium, his songwriting became so complex, that he decided to expand his band to maintain the integrity of the musical quality.

Vreid hail from Sogndal, Norway.

Vreid is a Norwegian black metal band formed in 2004 after the breakup of Windir following the death of lead singer and founder Valfar. The remaining members along with new guitarist Ese formed Vreid. The band's name is an archaic Norwegian word meaning "Wrath".

VREID were formed in 2004. CommunitySee all. 33,025 people like this. 32,640 people follow this. AboutSee all. Contact VREID (OFFICIAL) on Messenger.

Vreid, sadly, is not epic. At least not on this album. The ten-plus minute track "The Others and The Look" has some great lyrics and a few cool moments, but it really just fades into the background. The throwaway melodies don't help. Vreid has the ambition and the spirit, they just haven't brought the songwriting to this battle. V was kind of a letdown, but I am not at all trying to hate on Vreid. They are one of the few new-school bands who really understand what Norse black metal is about. Pair excellent writing with great performances and production, and you have a recipe for a perfect album.

Album (Studio full-length).

Vreid have released 5 albums & 1 DVD. Their latest album V received fantastic acclaim - 6/6 in Scream Magazine, 5/6 in Norwegian national newspapers VG & Dagbladet, and 9/10 in US main metal mag Decibel to name a few. V was also nominated to the Norwegian Grammy (Spellemann) for best Norwegian metal album in 2011.
