Rated 3.6/5 (72%) (10 Votes)
With their two previous releases, I was at first disappointed, to be then more satisfied as the "sinking in" effect was happening. With I Krig, the same bit of disappointment was familiar but, unfortunately the "best is yet to come" type of thing doesn't seem to be happening. Not a bad album as such, not just what I expect from Vreid. I found their style has become more accessible and in your face. Simpler compositions with catchy riffs has to be the general description for their melodic Black Metal. Fortunately, all is not lost since, on a few occasions, traces of the Viking/epic origins can still be felt, may it be in their folksy leads, clean choirs or in the violin parts. A few shy keyboard notes can also be heard on rare occasions. The sound of their power chords being re-used a bit too often gives a certain redundancy to the whole.
In short, we have here a great band doing some middle of the road music with a certain spicy flavor.
