VREID ANNOUNCE EUROPEAN TOUR – SOGNAMETAL 20 YEARS


2014 IS THE YEAR OF CELEBRATION.
11 albums & more than 400 shows in 22 countries on 3 continents calls for celebration.
In 2014 it is 20 years since the bands Windir and Ulcus were established in ”Fjøsen”/”The barn” in Sogndal, and its also marks the 10 years anniversary for Vreid. Hváll, Steingrim, Sture & Strom whom are Vreid today, have all played and been composers in all 3 bands.  To celebrate 2 decades of homebrewed metal, they now have gathered the Sognabrigade to assembly in 2014.  It will be an exclusive performance where they will perform songs from all 3 bands and cover their discography from past to present with guests from their history.  Karmøygeddon & Hellfest is already conquered and in August Wacken awaits. In October this show will be exclusive performed at some selected shows though Europe. After this tour there are no further plans to do more shows with this performance. Vreid are simultaneously working on a new album, set to be released in 2015.
