Rude Bear getting his black metal on (by Zach Dilgard)
Vried (by Leia Jospe)
By the time Rival Schools bid ta-ta to the main stage at the Knitting Factory, black metallers Vreid had already begun to soil the Tap Room during the Brooklyn Vegan Day Party on Oct 25th. Clad in gestapo-like matching black outfits, the band charged through their thrashy brand of black metal while vocalist/guitarist Sture barked away at the adoring (though small) crowd... which included none other than Rude Bear.
Vried's appearance at Knitting Factory marked their third show in the USA.... the first being Heathen Crusade Festival in 2007, and the second at the late-night CMJ Vice Party at The Studio at Webster Hall with Krallice. Vreid is currently mixing their new album, Milorg, which drops in 2009.
A little bit earlier, Trap Them flooded the Old Office with their patented brand of hatred.
