VREID Interviewed At U.K.'s HAMMERFEST

March 15, 2010

Barry Anderson of Metal Storm conducted an interview with Jarle "Hváll" Kvåle of the Norwegian band VREID at this year's Hammerfest II festival, which was held March 11-13, 2010 at Pontins, Prestatyn Sands, North Wales, United Kingdom. You can now watch the chat below.

VREID will play three special shows in late April/early May where they will be joined by a special guest — Vegard Bakken, brother of late WINDIR frontman Terje Valfar Bakken — for a few extra songs. According to VREID, these will be "full VREID concerts" that will include a couple of WINDIR songs with Vegard on vocals. "This is something we have considered for quite some time," the band said. "The loss of our brother and closest friend back in 2004 is something that has had a major impact on our lives, and is always affecting us both as persons and musicians.

"We have strong relationship with Vegard, and the music and spirit of WINDIR is something that unify us. We all grew up together and there is a bond between us, Vegard and Terje that never will be broken."

The dates are as follows:

Apr. 29 - W2, De Bosch, Netherlands
Apr. 30 - Ragnarök festival, Kreuth, Germany
May 01 - Fiesta Pagana, Schmerikon, Switzerland

VREID's fourth album, "Milorg", was released in North America on October 27, 2009 via Indie Recordings (with distribution and marketing duties handled by The End Records).

An e-card for "Milorg" is available at this location. The e-card features audio samples of all the cuts that appear on the CD.

"Milorg" was released in Norway on January 5, 2009 via Indie Recordings (January 19 in the rest of Europe). The cover artwork was designed by PC Groove.
