Vreid - "Into the Mountains" (video)

Ο δίσκος των Vreid "Wild North West"
Το 1994 σχηματίσθηκαν στην Νορβηγία οι Windir. Viking Metal συγκρότημα το οποίο διαλύθηκε το 2004 λόγω του θανάτου του Valfar.

Τα εναπομείναντα μέλη δημιούργησαν τους Vreid. Η μπάντα χαρακτηρίζει την μουσική της ως "Black 'n' Roll" κι έχει κυκλοφορήσει οκτώ "ολοκληρωμένους" δίσκους (και μπόλικα singles).

Ο ένατος είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Wild North West" κι αναμένεται στα τελειώματα του τρέχοντος μήνα...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Norwegian black 'n roll brigade Vreid have returned with their ninth album 'Wild North West' on which the band pushed their vision to new heights. 'Wild North West' is not just a collection of songs but a concept album that developed alongside an entire movie. Throughout eight chapters the listener will be taken on a journey deep into the mountains, to a dark place where the borders between reality and fantasy fade and where death is only one step behind you: The Wild North West.»

Vreid: «Into the Mountains is the essence of Sognametal, a hymn to Sogndal and a celebration of our ancestors and legacy. Late winter 2020 preparing for the new album, I went through my old recording hard discs and I found some old ideas for riffs that I had made in 2002.

It was from a session between the 1184 and Likferd albums from Windir. I also found some unused keyboard parts recorded by Valfar from the same period. I could not remember these and became euphoric by rediscovering this.

So, I blocked out the outside world, locked myself in the studio, and it instantly sent me 20 years back in time. I felt spellbound while working on this song. For a few days it felt like me and Valfar were working together in the studio again, and what a weird and fantastic session it was.

The dynamic of working together with Valfar is something that I will always miss, and these strange days it felt like journeying into a lost time. The result of this session is “Into the Mountains”, a song that feels so pure, fresh and vital for us, yet with a great homage to our olden times. Life is a strange and curvy road.»

    1. Το Viking metal δεν ήταν ποτέ από τα αγαπημένα μου, οπότε δεν μπορώ να εκφέρω άποψη. Πάντως τους Windir τους θυμάμαι...
