SONGS THAT CHANGED THE WORLD FEATURING VREID

Music can change the world! Some songs have done more than just entertain - they have changed the world. Together with Nobel Peace Center we invite you to their ongoing series about songs that have changed the world. So far artists like Bendik, Myra, Amanda Delara og Honningbarna have contributed with their interpretation of important songs that have changed the world. Now the Nobel Peace Center goes metal when Vreid will find a song about freedom of expression and do their interpretation of it. Asbjørn Slettemark, famous Norwegian music journalist and TV personality, will moderate the following debate about the chosen song. The gig will also include several of Vreid's own songs.

VREID

The Norwegian metal brigade rose from the ashes of black metal band Windir, after the tragic perishing of the "Sognametal" legends with the declared mission of exploring new musical paths. The band has now released eight great albums and is known for their amazing live shows. Vreid's newest masterpiece is "Lifehunger" which was released in 2018.

Toril Rokseth from Nobel Peace Center:

Nobel Peace Center wants to contribute to visitors of Oslo that attends cultural events also can experience some of the other things that the city has to offer. Through the cooperation with Inferno Metal Festival we offer a new arena for this kind of music - and at the same time we express that music can be more than just entertainment - music can change the world.

Asbjørn Slettemark:

All the way since the very beginning of "Songs That Changed the World", the project has offered surprises, fun, new knowledge and some amazing, strong and catchy cover songs. To do this together with Inferno Metal Festival, a festival I have been thrilled about for many years, feels just right. That it will also include Vreid, a band I have been following as a fan and a journalist through the last 15 years, makes it especially fun and interesting. I am very excited for the song they will choose, perform and talk about

Jarle Hváll Kvåle from Vreid:

In Vreid we have always been up for new challenges. It was therefore with huge excitement we took on this task when Inferno Metal Festival and Nobel Peace Center challenged us to do our interpretation of a song that changed the world. Freedom of speech has been relevant since the very beginning of rock, and is just as relevant and important today. A lot has changed since rock 'n' roll was new and rebellious in the 60s, but still today the freedom of speech are controversial and debated, so maybe the world has been at a stand still over the last 60 years. We are thankful for the engagement. Vreid looks forward to dig deep into the rock history of many fantastic songs, and will be ready to perform our song at the Nobel Peace Center in April.
