Windir, Vreid, Ulcus - 2014 Shows Celebrating 20 Years Of Music

Through Vreid's official Facebook page, plans for a reunion of the surviving members of Windir have been established to commemorate the formation of Windir, Ulcus and Vreid, which are all connected by its band members. These special shows will feature Righ from Windir and Ese from Vreid. As a special guest on vocals, they will also bring on Vegard Bakken, brother of Windir legend Terje "Valfar" Bakken who was found dead in 2004.

The following statement was issued: "Greetings people. Today would have been Valfar's 35th birthday. On this day of our fallen brother we are exited to tell you that in 2014 we will celebrate 20 years of music, madness and comradeship. This one is for all of you that have supported us through 2 decades. See you in 2014."

"In 2014, it is 20 years since the bands Windir and Ulcus were established in 'Fjøsen'/'The barn' in Sogndal, and its also marks the 10 years anniversary for Vreid. Hváll, Steingrim, Sture & Strom whom are Vreid today, have all played and been composers in all 3 bands. To celebrate 2 decades of homebrewed metal, they now have gathered the Sognabrigade to assembly in 2014. It will be an exclusive performance where they will perform songs from all 3 bands and cover their discography from past to present. On board for these special shows are their former troopers Righ from Windir, and Ese from Vreid. As a special guest on vocals they will also bring on Vegard Bakken, brother of Windir legend Terje "Valfar" Bakken who passed away in 2004."

Hmmmm not a fan of reviving dead bands.... Even if I love Windir (and definitely would see this show ).

SognaMetal dvd was the perfect end for Windir.

At least they mix all three bands so it doesn't make it as bad as Death (To All).

I'd do some fucked up shit to see them at one of those shows. I'd do even more fucked up shit to see them if they brought said show to the west coast.
Kick Ass, Die Young

Less is More
Stay Pure
Stay Poor

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.

Oh man, I hope they come back to Vancouver for this! Had the pleasure of seeing Vreid with Melechesh a few months ago and they killed it!
