Vreid songwriter and bass participant Jarle Hváll Kvåle comments: “At any time considering that February 2020, we have been functioning like hell on this new undertaking. The only short split was when we hosted the livestream from my mountain farm final summer time. This task has turn into all-consuming, and the several hours we put into it is just insane. Most of the songs was penned during winter season/early spring the very least 12 months, and lyrically I started out to get the job done on this idea tale. Then, me and movie producer Håvard Nesbø who did the lyric movies for ‘Lifehunger’ and made our livestream begun chatting about taking matters additional. I brought up this wild plan of undertaking a series of tunes videos, 1 for just about every track and then build these collectively as a movie. A movie that is the genuine album. Håvard who has no restrictions on his lunacy jumped on board, and we in no way looked back.

This turned the most inventive adventure I have ever worked on. The entire method of composing music, recording and mixing it, writing lyrics, creating the script for the film, the actual filming and editing it and doing the job on the style and design all bought tangled up in 1 twisted planet, the place all these things influenced and colored just about every other. It is provided a complete new dimension to our artwork. The end result is ‘Wild North West’. This as Do-it-yourself as it will get, and it’s OUR story.

With ‘Wild North West’ we have the whole legacy in our backpack, but with new adventures and visions fulfilled. From the most serious and intense we have ever completed to a hefty and melodic earth where by we open new doors. VREID’s origin is rooted in the blend of the aggressive 80ies metal, the grooving 70ies significant rock and the northern black steel of the 90ies. This is our DNA and this is the spirit of Sognametal.

Welcome to the Wild North West.”
