Vreid: another new song available for streaming
Norwegian black 'n' roll legion Vreid has release a new single, "The Way Of The Serpent", from their forthcoming new full-length, "Welcome Farewell". Cold and compelling, the follow-up to 2011's "V", which Decibel magazine called "Vreid's finest hour," was recorded at bassist Hváll's own Studio 1184 and is set for North American release on March 5 via Indie Recordings.

Described by Metal Hammer as a "unique time-travel in metal," commending their merge of '70s rock, '80s classic metal and Norwegian black metal, with the eight-track "Welcome Farewell" Vreid again add a new twist to their already difficult-to-pinpoint sound. Hváll says of the new material, "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."

"Welcome Farewell" track listing:

01. The Ramble
02. The Way Of The Serpent
03. The Devil's Hand
04. Welcome Farewell
05. The Reap
06. Sights of Old
07. Black Waves
08. At The Brook

Vreid formed in 2004 following the demise of ''Sognametal" legends Windir. Some described their music as a fusion of Windir's ambiance, the rawness of Norwegian black metal and the molten groove of Sepultura, Metallica and MotÖRhead blended with historically inspired lyrics. Their third and fourth offerings, "I Krig" and "Milorg", were both concept albums based around the liberation work in Norway during World War Ii. Liberation was also the keyword on "V", but put in a broader historical/philosophic perspective. The lyrics on "Welcome Farewell" describe a lifecycle through a series of short stories, seen from an existential point of view and, inspired by Hváll's own local community with its nature, architecture and historical artists such as Arne Garborg and Otto Valstad, are more personal than ever before.

Vreid is:

Hváll - Bass
Sture - Vocals/Guitar
Strom - Guitar
Steingrim - Drums
