After the Norwegians´ last album “V” was nominated for the Norwegian Grammy (the prize went to Årabrit´s “Solar Anus”), the expectations were high for the next creation, their sixth studio album. Vreid´s latest record, “Welcome Farewell” falls into their so-called “Black ´ Roll” (mix between 70´s Hard Rock & Black Metal) and in comparison to “V”, it looks like they shifted up a gear. It ranges from totally dark and gloomy in “Welcome Farewell” and “Sights of Old” to the neckbreaking “The Reap”. Sture´s vocals are just as we remembered and leave little room for criticism. The good old structure to the songs, as well as emotional melodies -without being slimy-, genre-fitting production, a lot of versatility and even better guitar solos than before, make this one of their best albums, along with “V”. The only thing left to ask for is a song that just gets stuck in your ear -which was there in the last album.
