Three weeks on the road and still alive

After a horrible start with the ultimate shitty tour-bus, things got better when we got a new luxurious night-liner after the show in Rosenheim. Our new bus driver Tony Adams provided us with the best facilities since we left Norway.

Unfortunately all of Vreid got serious ill sleeping in the infested bus the so called Vikings Enslaved provided. But as soon as the stereo farting of Seg-Cato and Fet-Grutle from Poland had reached its climax the conditions were so horrific that a new bus had to be required.

Germany had its ups and downs with Jena and Hamburg being the highlights. The next stop was Holland and its famous ShoffeCups. Hooking up with the Dutch fans was great. Special thanks to Metalhammer journalist Gunnar Sauerkraut for trying to infect Vreid once again with his so called brew – Whiskey. The infamous Whiskey lovers of Enslaved: Herbrand Kråkevik, Ivar Medås, Arve Oppsal, Cato Zahl Pedersen and Sulfest Grutle were horrified.

The London and Paris shows where fantastic….so far the highlight of the tour.

After playing Rennes Vreid did four shows in Spain before having a well deserved 2 days off in Barcelona.

The page has been updated with lots of great reviews on “Kraft,” and there are added some new pictures from their tours as well.


Kraft has been out one month in Norway, and 2 weeks in Europe now, and the response has been tremendous. Reviews and interviews will be posted soon. Vreid did a successful Norwegian tour with Enslaved in October, and they were very satisfied with the tour.

Next chance to see Vreid live is Friday the 12th of November at John Dee Oslo. Vreid will be playing the Wolfs Lair 5 year anniversary. Other bands playing will be Moonsorrow, Die Apokalyptischen Reiter, Lunaris, Throne Of Katarsis etc… Every Norwegian Metalhead should attend at this festival to support one of the real Norwegian metal underground heroes, The Wolfs Lair General; Panzernissen!
