Vredehammer was originally formed as a solo project by the band’s frontman Per Valla in March 2009. Valla released three EPs from 2010 to 2013 via small underground record labels before he in 2014 finally added members to the band, got signed to a bigger label and made Vredehammer a full touring band. Since then Vredehammer has toured as co-headliner with Six Feet Under, Satyricon, Keep of Kalessin and Vreid, in addition to doing their own headlining tour through Europe in October 2014. Vredehammer frontman Per Valla is also the guitar player of the Norwegian black Metal Band Nordjevel.
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. This resulted in appearances on TV, several festival appearances and massive radio attention.
While working on the second Vredehammer release, frontman Valla’s talent was picked up by the band Abbath. He was quickly enrolled as their first session lead guitarist in 2015 where he stayed for 6 months touring the world as a full time professional musician, before his passion for his own band Vredehammer made him decide to leave his position in the supergroup to fully focus on his own band. This experience resulted in the most noticeable Vredehammer-release so far; “Violator”.
