    :OMG: Rokk on!

    this is cool as hell- I have been keeping up on this also, but this is the 1st interview that He's done himself since the fall...
    the prospect of a VBE/virus type album is enough to geek about-

    for anyone who hasnt checked out Virus, DO IT, it'll make your pants tight

    There's a brand new rehearsal track posted on http://www.myspace.com/vedbuensende. Here's some more news I found:
    On April 26, 2006, Blabbermouth.net announced that Ved Buens Ende has reformed, and are working on new material.

    Along with Vicotnik and Carl-Michael Eide, who now plays guitar instead of drums, there are two new members; Petter "Plenum" Berntsen on bass and Einar "Esso" Sjursø on drums. They are also members of Carl-Michael Eide's band "Virus". Many fans of the band were surprised by the absence of Hugh Mingay (aka Skoll), whose place was taken by Petter Berntsen.

    The band's drummer, Einar Sjursø, had this to say about the band on blabbermouth.net.: "We will record a new album this year, to be released in 2007 by an as-yet-undetermined label (interested parties get in touch) and we also aim at playing live, where we will perform material both from 'Written In Waters' and the [post-VED BUENS ENDE project] VIRUS 'Carheart' album plus of course new compositions. The new material is being developed at the moment and will differ from both 'Written In Waters' and 'Carheart' yet still retain the trademark off the wall guitar sounds of those releases."

    my pants are tight.....

    news from Carl Michael....




    We`re riding on a current. Back on track.

    First of all, I`d like to thank you all for your support, and for your kind remarks on the rehersal-recordings of our new music.

    As you may or may not know, I`ve been in different hospitals and rehabilitation-clinics for 18 months, until two months ago when I moved back home.

    The injuries on my body was so severe. The kind of pain recovering from a fall from 5th floor makes you do your best to escape reality. It generates some clean thinking. I realised Ved Buens Ende is one of the most important aspects of my life.

    I am now fully recovered from my accident. Through my convalescence, I decided that we had to reform our band. I suggested it to the other creative half of VBE, and we started writing songs right away.

    Vicotnik and myself have realised that VBE is in the core of our creativity.

    Together we exhumed our band.

    We are back, in all the sense of the word. We reherse, we make music and we try to demonstrate that we`re present again.

    Obviously I can`t play drums now. I`m paralysed in my ankles and feet (luckily not from the weist). So I focus solely on guitar these days. Its nice to finally have only one instrument to entertain. Rather than practising two instruments (drums/guitar), playing them equally shabby, I play one instrument better.

    Einar Sjursø is with us now. Better known as Necrodevil. We call him EINARR!!!. He was the obvious choice for a drummer. He plays fluent and eccentric. Just the way we want it.

    Initially, the lineup from my old band Virus; Einar, me and Plenum (bass), was gonna mutate into VBE (adding Vicotnik ofcourse). But circumstances forced Plenum to leave the band. He`s one of Norways best bassplayers (across all genres). We miss him... we wish him all the best for the future.

    The lineup is now me;Czral-Michael (guitar/song), Vicotnic(guitar, voice), Einarr (drums). We`re probably using Bjørn Boge (infamous Norwegian rock-bassplayer) as a session-member on the album and live-performances in the future, but we dont know yet.

    Our former bass-player, Hugh S. "Scoll" J. Mingay, is the boss of a motoguzzi motorcycle repair-shop these days. He simply hasnt got the time for Ved Buens Ende. Not nice, but unevetable. He loves his bikes more than anything. I think he has three or four of them.

    If he wants to return, he`s welcome.

    Thats it for now, I wont bore you with any more crap. I`ll update this blog when something happens.



    Sennep er så godt at jeg nesten må dø!
