Vreid Release New Album "Milorg," Today on Indie Recordings / The End * Announce US Tour on Heathenfest!
Referring to Vreid as black & roll is simplifing it, this is black metal plus. Milorg got the production, the riffs, the solos, the concept, whats not to love? - Terrorizer Magazine
As the Phoenix has done done countless times, so did Vreid, rising from the ashes of the legendary Windir in 2004. Immediately making an impact on the European metal scene, Vreid incorporates elements of Norwegian folk music and 70's classic rock, while still keeping their Norwegian metal roots intact. Dubbed “Black & Roll,” it wasn't until 2007 that the band hit its stride garnering rave reviews and massive European tours with Marduk, Unleashed, Enslaved, and Pestilence soon followed.
Even with all of the band's success, no one was prepared for MILORG. Named after a World War II Norwegian resistance group MILORG ( MILitary ORGanization) and entirely self-produced, MILORG is a milestone in Norwegian metal and showcases a sound that's more mature and atmospheric, while remaining raw and powerful. MILORG is already a candidate for a top European metal album of the decade!
* Vreid will embark on their first ever tour of the US as they head out on Heathenfest early next month. The band will be joined by special guests Eluveitie and Belphegor. Full tourdates below!
