We have been working in our dungeon (studio 1184) with our second album since September. The recordings were finished by late November, and we have now been mixing the album for a couple of weeks. The mixing of the album was done at Subsonic Society studio together with Lars Klokkerhaug. Working with Lars was a pleasure as always. We feel that we have really found the formula and the right sound for this album; raw, powerful and grooving as hell. The last step of the process is the mastering of the album. On the 20th of January we will og to Tailor Maid studio in Stockholm and put the last make up on this beast.
Release is set to 27.03.2006 through Tabu Records and worldwide distribution by Candlelight Records.
The album will be titled PITCH BLACK BRIGADE. It will contain the following 8 songs:
Då Draumen Rakna, Pitch Black, Left To Hate, The Red Smell, Hengebjørki, Our Battle, Hang ‘Em All & Eit Kapitell For Seg Sjølv.
I am very satisfied with the album. I sincerely think this is the best album I have ever been working on. It is a continuance of Kraft, but yet rawer, far more rocking and more epic than ever before. Lyrically the album is inspired by a lot of the brutal and grim historical events from the last centuary. Science-fiction seems bleak compared to the ugly history of our ancestors.
We will also be making a video for the song Pitch Black. The recording for this video will take place in January, and the video should be available at the same time as the release of the album.
We hope to play as much live as possible after the release of Pitch Black Brigade, and we have already started the process of booking concerts. If you want to watch Vreid live this year, make sure that you tell your local concert/festival management so. Spread the word and we’ll be coming to a scene near you soon. All booking related questions can be send to firstname.lastname@example.org
We will tell you more when there is more to tell.
Hváll and the Vreid Brigade.
