Summer is almost done and so is the mixing of our debut album. It’s been a hard task, but we think the result is great. 11 Grand songs that live up to our expectations. We hope it will please you as well.
While we are busy arranging and negotiating all kinds of agreements in the background to make this release happen the way it deserves, we also planned a gig to get back into the swing of things. On November 3rd we will be supporting Wintersun on their exclusive request show at Fluor, Amersfoort. We will play some of the new tracks.
To make things even more exciting we added 2 new band photos to this site. To give you an idea how things are looking at the moment.
Your patience will be rewarded. More news soon.

Summer is gone. And we’re preparing for our next journey. There are 12 songs at the moment that we are preparing for recording; to be included in our debut album. Some are completely finished, some need more work. All are very much Vetrar Draugurinn.
Now that are group of musicians has officially expanded to 5 with the inclusion of Arjan Heijden on bass (as a replacement for Douwe de Wilde) and Thomas Cochrane (who was already our live guitarist) we are gearing up to perfect and test the new songs and crank out the older songs.
After the recording of our debut album we will take some time to look for an interested company that might want to release the album. If that doesn’t bear fruit we will probably release it through Dark Skies Coming Recordings…
We will keep you updated!
The Winter Cold is coming closer…

With our debut EP “I” scheduled for release on March 30th we thought it would be the right time to open the opportunity to pre-order it in 3 different formats through our Bandcamp page.

Follow the link below and be sure to secure your copy (download, CD or 12″ vinyl). The CD is limited to 500 copies and the 12″ (available from mid-May onwards) will be limited to 300 copies.


The CDs already arrived and are ready to be send out soon!

We’re happy to announce that from this day on we are represented by the mighty LOUD NOISE for all bookings! LOUD NOISE is one the strongest rising stars in the booking agencies in The Netherlands at this moment. Creating and building several of their own festivals, and booking tours with some of the biggest names in the louder genres. We are looking forward to break several barriers in the upcoming year with the LOUD NOISE team! CHEERS!!

We can officially announce today that VETRAR DRAUGURINN has been confirmed to appear at next year’s edition of the FemME Metal Event in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. We will make sure that we make the ground shake with our heavy, low-tuned doom-y melancholic metal… Hope to see you all there, as this festival is a great one to add to your list.


Thank you all who showed their trust and support by pledging for our crowdfunding campaign. Being an independent band is hard work and we our incredibly grateful that all of you are on our side. We surpassed our goal with still 2 weeks left on our campaign. We hope that this will secure some more trust in everyone who hasn’t pledged (but want to). The manufacturing of our EP has become 100% certain.
We are humbled… grateful… and enjoyed by what the future might bring.


Dear friends,
A big step forward in our journey has been taken yesterday. Our crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to manufacture our debut EP on CD and Vinyl has started!!
We are offering you some nice perks (and our heartfelt music) for some cash input in return. We hope you all want to join us in our fight for independent musicians. We are music fans too. We are not that different. 😉

If you want to support us, help us fund the EP, follow the link below…
You will have our gratitude. And Sharing is Caring!

Dear friends,
The time draws near to enter the next chapter towards our debut EP release. NEXT week we will start our crowd funding campaign to hopefully raise enough funds to manufacture the physical discs. We gathered some nice perks and we are putting down the last details before releasing it upon the world,

Stay in the loop and connect to our Facebook site, Twitter account, and Mailing List.

Plans have been brewing and we are heading towards a lot of markers for our near future release. Our debut will become a 6 track, limited EP. 2 Tracks will be of songs that will appear on our debut album, albeit in a different form. 2 Tracks will be original VetrarDraugurinn songs that will not be available anywhere else than on this EP. And the last 2 tracks will be of 2 songs we appreciate and respect (covers); which will also be exclusive to the EP. We are starting recording at the end of October.

We would like to make our debut extra special and release it in 3 formats, namely CD, vinyl and digital download. We’re already eyeing our future artwork and researching the best manufacturers. But getting our music out in these formats and into your collection will be quite a task – physically and financially. To keep up momentum we are planning to ask your support by starting a crowdfunding campaign at the start of October. We will be offering some cool perks, and we will keep you all up-to-date with the entire process – as it happens! More about this all, soon…

But what does it sound like?! Well, we have a small snippet of one of our pre-production recordings (with the first draft of the vocals) out on the internet at the moment. You can find it: HERE.

More coming your way soon, my friends…
