2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the formation of bands Windir and Ulcus, and it also marks the 10th anniversary for Vreid. Hváll, Steingrim, Sture & Strom who constitute Vreid presently, have all played and been composers in all 3 bands.
To celebrate 2 decades of homebrewed metal, Vreid has now 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 with guests from their history. Festivals Karmøygeddon & Hellfest are in the bag and in August, Wacken awaits. In October this live performance will be brought on the road throughout Europe for a string of selected shows. After this tour there are no further plans to do more shows with this performance.
Vreid are currently working on a new album, set to be released in 2015.

The outfit has played major festivals such as Wacken, Summer Breeze, Party San, Metal Camp, Inferno, Ragnarok, HITS, Øya etc.,and toured with bands such as Enslaved, Pestilence, Marduk, Unleashed, Eluvetie, Belphegor, Einherjer & Kampfar to name a few.
