Vreid

The black metal world was dealt a tragic blow with the death of Windir mainman Valfar in January of 2004. The rest of the band decided they could not continue as Windir and so that band was laid to rest, but three members decided to move forward, and thus Vreid was formed. While black metal is the basis for both Vreid and Windir, the bands do not resemble each other much, as on their sophomore effort Pitch Black Brigade Vreid leave behind the Viking/folk elements of their old band, instead alternating a colder, simpler, mid-paced black metal style (at times resembling recent Satyricon) with some more epic, old-school moments (notably on “Hengebjørki”, for example). A fourth former member of Windir now completes the lineup, as all four guys here were once in that band.

Recent album: Wild North West, released on April 30, 2021.
