The 3. of september would have been Valfar´s 35th birthday. We are exited to tell you that in 2014 we will celebrate our fallen brother, 20 years of music, madness and comradeship. This one is for all of you that have supported us through 2 decades. See you in 2014.
VREID /WINDIR / ULCUS
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. Onboard for these special shows are their former troopers Righ from Windir, and Ese from Vreid. As a special guest on vocals they will also bring on Vegard Bakken, brother of Windir legend Terje ”Valfar” Bakken whom passed away in 2004.

Check out the new video teaser for the upcoming European tour.
The Dutch masters of horror Carach Angren joins Vreid & Mistur for the “Fire Walk With ME” European Tour in September.
Although their music is clearly based on Black Metal, CARACH ANGREN developed a style on their own, more flamboyant and openly theatrical, which perfectly fits the cinematic horror concepts of the Dutch. This originality has been well received by critics and fans alike right from the beginning and CARACH ANGREN also gained a reputation as an excellent live act. Now it is time to open a new and even darker chapter with “Where The Corpses Sink Forever”.
“We regret to announce that due to unforeseen personal matters we have been forced to cancel our participation in the forthcoming “Fire Walk With Me” european tour with Vreid and Mistur. This is a decision we have not taken lightly and our sincere apologies goes out to anyone who was looking forward to see Einherjer on stage, and for any inconvenience caused.
Hope to see you out there next time!
Note: The show in Zagreb has changed venue from Bogaloo to MOCHVARA.

I’m sorry to inform you that due to personal reasons will I not be attending the forthcoming Vreid UK-tour with Paradise Lost & Insomnium. This is, of course, a very hard blow for me – especially beeing a long-life fan of Paradise Lost.
The drums on the tour will be handled by our good friend Tomas Myklebust (Emancer).
I’ll be teaming up with my Pitch Black comrades again after the tour, as we’re just weeks away from starting the recordings on our next album. And for the festivals and tours/shows later on this year..I’ll be back with a vengeance!!
