Vried
Kraft (Candlelight Records)

By: Mike SOS

Enduring the death of its lead singer, Vreid (formerly Windir) regrouped and put out Kraft, an exciting eight-track affair whose musical output varies from the most devout black metal to pure rock 'n roll fury. This Norwegian band's versatile assault comes equipped with tracks like "Eldast, Utan A Gro", containing all of the nuances that will melt the face paint off of any unsuspecting metal warrior. Yet, Kraft displays an experimental side to the outfit that allows the tribe to color outside of the lines for a bit before returning to the smoldering bass lines, enormous drums, and frenzied guitar work of tracks like "Unholy Water". Vreid successfully turned its tragedy into a musical triumph, and any black metal fan would be proud to crank this beast from their speakers.
