On the track, mastermind Hváll comments: "Soon we can finally unleash 'Lifehunger'. We are so damn satisfied and proud of this album. Thank you for the fantastic response to the first 2 singles. There is much more to come, the album has a lot of variations with instrumentals, a very different track in "Hello Darkness" with Addi from SÓLSTAFIR on guest vocals and some brutal stuff of course. But now we present you what I think is one of the absolute highlights of the album. The song "One hundred years" is one of these songs that you create in your career where you feel that every piece of the puzzle fits, and everything just adds up. It's hard do describe it, and frankly the magic of music can never be described so I won't even try. I've had this feeling a few times before with songs such as "Pitch Black" and "Solverv" to name a few, and this is the feeling I always chase as a composer. Lyrically this song is completely inspired by the words and the myth of the spectacular Knut Hamsun. Some things are eternally."

Biography

Vreid-01-small-havard_nesbo

VREID were formed in 2004. The Norwegian metal brigade rose from the ashes of WINDIR after the tragic perishing of the "Sognametal" legends with the declared mission of exploring new musical paths.

The Norsemen proved true to their words and have so far delivered 7 albums and one DVD, which each received high praise from critics and fans alike. VREID chose a course of constant evolution that is marked by thematically denoted phases regarding their often historically inspired lyrics.

This became particularly clear with albums 'I Krig' (2007) and 'Milorg' (2009), which both revolved around concepts dealing with resistance and liberation of Norway during World War II. With their following three records, VREID returned to their Norse roots, especially on latest full-length, 'Sólverv' which received high critical acclaim in 2015.

VREID have hammered out their success partly by being a heavily touring band. The four-piece performed more than 500 shows in 25 countries so far. Their everlasting march to conquer new territories has led the Norwegians to headline tours in Europe, North America, Japan, and India.

VREID's style is often referred to as black 'n roll and Metal Hammer UK described their music as "a unique time travel in metal" as elements of 70's rock, 80's classic metal, and Norwegian black metal are all clearly audible.

Now with eighth album 'Lifehunger', black 'n roll is back! With eight brand new tracks, VREID are ready for the next chapter.
