Norwegian ‘black n’ roll assassins’ VREID recently completed work on their new album.

Comments bassist Hváll of the new material,
“Two years after we started writing new riffs, our new beast is now complete. It’s been a lot of work, but we are utterly pleased with the result. ‘Dark,’ ‘heavy’ and ‘VREID’ are the three keywords to describe it. The artwork takes us in a new direction this time, and is done by the wizard Kim Holm. His work is spectacular and has captured the music and lyrics beyond words. We can’t wait to unleash it, and come out and play for you again.”
