Vreid storm North America

A Nordic black metal assault is about to strike North America with the fury of an earthquake. Though this one is bound to damage more than just a few vases.

It is true that Vreid touch down tomorrow night in Toronto alongside Kampfar (co-headliners, whose new album “Mare” is out on Napalm) and Canadian blackened death metal troupe Necronomicon to begin the Black Path of America Tour. Vreid are touring in support of their latest record (out on Indie Recordings) “V,” a disc we reviewed a few months back. You can find a link to the review below in case you don’t feel like scrolling.

If you’re pumped about the Vreid tour and really wish you could go for free (because who doesn’t like to be comped?), you’re in luck. Ah, sort of. There’s a giveaway going on for tour tickets, but you have to have an amazingly fast trigger finger in order to get them. Below are the details from Vreid about how you can get these tickets. It’s a really awesome offer, but you’re going to need some serious luck or great timing in order to pull off this heist. The whole thing begins today, so waste no time.

To celebrate this special trek, the band will be giving away a pair of tickets for each show via their official Facebook page. The day before each gig, Vreid will include a special post to their page. The first person to reply to that post, will get two guest list tickets for the show the following day. Please be sure to post your full name in your comment. The band will announce the winner within the same post. Remember, you must provide your own transportation to the show. Vreid will only be providing tickets.

This is a really diverse tour, musically, and I tend to prefer these lineups. You’re going to get something different with each band, so you won’t be bombarded with the same type of metal all night long. Also, it’ll be interesting to hear the “V” stuff live, because it’s a pretty different record from Vreid than what we’re used to hearing. Necronomicon should have people thrashing their heads around, and Kampfar should give people the chance to guzzle mead from horns and gnaw on grilled chicken legs (you may have to bring your own). Who doesn’t enjoy that? If anyone reading this hits the tour and cares to let us know how the show was, please drop us a line in the comment section.
