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.
