Norwegian Black ‘n Roll brigade VREID released a new music video for the second song from their new upcoming record “Wild North West“. The song “The Morning Red” is also the installment of the band’s unique and ambitious movie project. Check out the music video below!
“Wild North West” is a concept album that developed alongside an entire movie. Throughout eight chapters the listener will be taken on a journey deep into the mountains, to a dark place where the borders between reality and fantasy fade and where death is only one step behind you: The Wild North West.
“Wild North West” will be released on April 30th via Season of Mist in various formats. Pre-orders are available HERE.
VREID songwriter and bass player Jarle Hváll Kvåle comments:
“’The Morning Red’ is one our heaviest songs ever and clearly shows that our musical DNA is rooted in the 70/80s classical heavy rock coated with Nordic blackness. A blueprint of our eternal creative duality of melancholia and primal aggression. The backdrop for our new music video ‘The Morning Red,’ which is also the centerpiece of our full movie, ‘Wild North West,’ is this haunted architectural eagle´s nest. The more than 100-year-old sanatorium lies completely isolated in the mountainside above the world’s longest fjord, Sognefjorden. Once built to shield people from infectious diseases and later the asylum of the Wild North West, it became our creative center during the pandemic. With the world closed down, we admitted ourselves to one of Scandinavia’s most mythical and majestic buildings to record the movie. The massive building has been abandoned for almost 30 years, and the harsh climate has taken its toll as the building is being consumed by nature. The history and destinies that these roughed walls embrace are fascinating, vile and dark to say the least, and with ‘Wild North West,’ we have become a part of this majestic white castle’s history.”
