Vreid/Welcome Farewell/Indie Recordings/2013 CD Review


  Vreid  are  a  band  from  Norway  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  with  a  musical  style  on  this  recording  I  would  describe  as  being  Norwegian  black  metal  with  influences  from  70's  rock  and  80's  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2013  album  "Welcome  Farewell"  which  was  released  by  Indie  Recordings.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  utilized  at  times,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  Norwegian  style  black  metal  riffs  that  take  influences  from  70's  rock  and  80's  metal  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  as  well  as  a  brief  use  of  soft  and  clean  playing,  while t he  lead  guitars  are  old  school  metal/rock  guitar  solos  and  leads.

  Vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  and  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  along  with  a  brief  use  of  deep  growls  and  spoken  word  parts,  while  the  lyrics  cover  occult  and  philosophical  themes,  as for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  dark  and  heavy  sound  where  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  recording  from  Vreid  and  if  you  are  a f an  of  this  band,  you  should  enjoy  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Way  Of  The  Serpent"  "The  Devil's  Hand"  and  "Black  Waves".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
