Emancer Issues Tour Report

Norway's Emancer has checked in with the following report of the band's European tour with Belphegor and Vreid:

"We're back from 16 days on the road with Belphegor and Vreid, and what a great experience it has been! This was our first tour and getting out to metal fans all over Europe was just amazing. Some places were more lively than others for sure, especially Sofia, Erfurt, Bratislava and generally all the gigs in Spain will bring good memories. And it was great to end the tour at the Metal Invasion Festival in Passau!

"Sadly there were some problems during the tour that lead to a few shows being canceled. We can only say that we're sorry about this, but it was completely out of the hands of the bands. The last thing we want when we're on tour is to cancel gigs, but sometimes we can't do anything about it. Let's hope that we'll have another chance to play in places like Krakow and Marseille at a later time!

"Special thanks goes to the crew guys and sound technician Helge who did an amazing job, and of course to all the guys in Vreid and Belphegor for a great time on the road! If you have any photos or videos from the tour, please don't hesitate to contact us. Meanwhile, external photo galleries are being posted on our website."

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

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...
