VREID: Norwegian Black Metallers Issue Wacken Recap

Last week, Norwegian black metal heathens VREID, performed another punishing set at the Wacken Open Air fest. No stranger to the prestigious event, 2011 marks the band’s third time leveling the Wacken stage. Commented bassist Hváll: “Last Saturday we did our third performance at Wacken, and as always it was a magical experience. Wacken is the Valhalla of metal festivals due to its extreme organization… and it has the best audience in the world. This was one of our best shows ever, and we are now tanked up and ready to unleash our wrath of North America for the next weeks”
