This is the new beast from the Norwegian brigade.
In 2004 Vreid arrived with their blasting debut album Kraft. The album was applauded by the metal press, and during 2004/05 Vreid did more than 40 concerts all over Europe. When the tour ended, Hváll locked himself up in his dungeon (Studio 1184). In the autumn the rest of the brigade entered the studio and hammered out their fury. By late November the battle was over, and the beast was transported to Subsonic Society where it was mixed by Vreid & Lars Klokkerhaug. The last polish and shining of the beast’s uniform was mastered and Tailormaid by Peter in de Betou and the brigade in Stockholm January 2006.
Pitch Black Brigade manifests the style that Vreid molded with Kraft, but PBB is a bold step in a more rocking and grooving direction. 8 tracks of raw, pounding and atmospheric Norwegian Black & Roll. As usual there are both Norwegian & English lyrics, this time based upon some of the grim and hateful historical events from the 20th centuary. With a razor-sharp and powerful production, this album will become a monument of Northern Metal anno 2006.
