Jotunheim Festival Canceled

The 2010 edition of the Jotunheim festival was scheduled to feature bands such as Thyrfing, Manegarm, Vreid, and more. The Jotunheim organizers have now issued the following statement about canceling the festival:

"We must inform you that we have unfortunately been forced to cancel the first edition of Jotunheim Festival! Jotunheim Festival is canceled due to apparent pressure from Antifa who believed that the line-up included bands that advocated fascism or were affiliated with fascistic political movements. This was completely untrue, with not a single band having ever expressed such political sympathies (if any), only pride in their heritage (though of course, any such display immediately gets Antifa up in arms anyway). Nor was there any statement made on behalf of the festival that specified any particulars about who could and could not attend, certainly not on racial grounds.

"Because of the Antifa groups, Northwind Promotion declines to do concerts and festivals in Croatia, and in the future will be focused on the external market where there are no organizations that will charge based on nonexistent facts. For a refund of the tickets, please contact us by e-mail info@jotunheim-festival.com."

Vreid Comments On Canceled Show

Norway's Vreid has checked in with the following update about canceling their London show due to the flight situation in Europe:

"Getting an sms from the flight company last Thursday saying that our flight to London canceled due to a volcanic eruption, made me wonder if they had moved aprils fool day. But as you all know, this was not a joke at all. Unfortunately our showcase in London was canceled, but the good news is that the show will be set up again this autumn.

"With no flights available last week, we went directly from the airport to the ferry in Oslo. We got a place on the boat for Germany, so we did not have to cancel the other shows as well last weekend. It became a long trip for 2 shows, but sure are happy we made it, as the show at Royal Metal Fest in Denmark was absolutely killer. Now we are preparing for the shows next week with our special guest Vegard Bakken, this is going to be some very cool shows. See you next week."

Vreid's upcoming tour dates are as follows:

4/30 2010 Ragnarök Festival Ostbayernhalle Rieden/Kreuth
5/1 2010 Fieste Pagana Eselswiese Schmerikon
6/19 2010 Jotunheim Festial Kroatia Mocvara Zagreb

Vreid Checks In With Band Update

Bassist Hvall of Norway's Vreid has checked in with the following update about the band's activity:

"This weekend we were gathered in the good old 'Fjøsen' ( our rehearsal place from the Ulcus & Windir days). It was a great atmosphere to rehearse there again, and especially with all the stuff we are working with at the moment, everything from new line up, new album and the upcoming special shows.

"New material: First of all we are working on the new material. Over the last 10 months I have been working on riffs & ideas for a new album. This has now ended up in 10 working tracks. Over the last few months Sture & Steingrim have been working together with me on the guitar & drum arrangements. This weekend was the first time we started playing the stuff together, and I have to admit that I am 'over the moon' about how the songs are turning out. It is too early to describe what direction the album is taking, but for me the main thing is that the material sounds very fresh and that it fills us all with such enthusiasm. We now have a few working sessions coming up before we start recording the drums. Sture & Strom will work closely together to develop the guitar arrangements, and I am confident that their work collaboration will bring our music to new heights. More...

Vreid Parts Ways With Guitarist

Norway's Vreid has issued the following update about parting ways with their guitarist:

"Hallo and a good new year to ya all. We open the new year with important news for you. In late December we got the news from Ese that he could not continue to play with Vreid. This was of course very sad news, as Ese has been a member of Vreid since the beginning in 2004. We respect his decision, and want to thank him for all his great work during the 5 years, 4 album and almost 200 shows for the Vreid brigade.

"Here is a statement from Ese himself concerning the matter: 'I have decided to quit as guitarist in Vreid, and chosen to do so of personal reasons. I have had a blast these years, both in the studio and on the road. It has been exciting to see and be a part of Vreid growing into something to be proud of. I look forward to see Vreid continuing to do so, and wish my comrades all the best.' More...
