Emerging from the dissolution of Windir, Vreid has continued the eclecticism of their previous band by fusing mid-paced tempos, classic metal melodies, and a progressive rock mentality into more traditional Norwegian black metal. Their music is often referred to as "Sognametal" - a reference to the band's home in Sogndal.

I spoke with founder/bassist Jarle Hváll Kvåle about the band's history, and the musical links that connect Windir to Vreid. We also talked about the concept behind their latest release, Wild North West, and the 8 part video/film created in conjunction with the album.

My thanks to Jarle for speaking with me, and to all of you for listening.
