"Violator" out March 18!
7 years have passed since the birth of Vredehammer, and this is celebrated by the release of their second full-length album ”Violator” - definitely their heaviest and most powerful release yet.

With their highly acclaimed debut album “Vinteroffer”, Vredehammer instantly made themselves known as a force to be reckoned with in the Norwegian metal scene. One album in and the band was already nominated for “metal album of the year” through the Norwegian Grammys. They also toured Europe as direct support for the mighty Satyricon, as well as together with Keep of Kalessin and Vreid.
The references may not be obvious in Vredehammers latest release but there is certainly an underlying vibe.
Per Valla specifies: ”With Violator I wanted to take a step back and focus on the feeling I used to get from listening to bands like Metallica, Pantera and Megadeth. This resulted in an album that isn`t really focused on speed and aggression, but rather groove and power. It will be interesting to see how such an album will be received these days, when a lot of the focus seems to be on speed for many of the extreme metal bands out there today.”

”Vinteroffer was a good release, but our new album Violator takes our music to a whole new level when it comes to writing really powerful and well-composed songs. I feel confident that this album will be one to remember.”
