VREID will be touring in support of their fifth studio album, simply entitled V, released in North America via The End/Indie Recordings in March. The nine-track long player was produced by HvÃ¡ll at his own 1184 Studio, and has been reaping critical acclaim stateside since its release. The band is currently available for pre-tour phone interviews upon request. Interest parties should contact their nearest EarsplitPR rep ASAP.
“…easily VREID‘s finest hour; an album that pulls off the rare feat of shucking away constraints while simultaneously maintaining a grip on the band’s (damned, obvs.) soul. — Decibel
“VREID remain under-appreciated by the mass black metal community, but perhaps this record will stun them awake to what has been building for some time. A must own for Norwegian black metal fans and a worthy listen for all metal fans in general.” — Metalholic
“Very few extreme metal efforts these days possess a shred of the integrity and sheer electrical power of V: do yourself a favor and check it out.” — Metal Army America
“VREID have perfected black ‘n’ roll, combining the tools of black metal with the great songwriting of ’70s rock and early heavy metal. V is the first real contender for album of the year.” — Metal Archives
