Vänlade is a heavy metal band with roots in Kansas City, Kansas. Over the past several years, the band has forged its brand of fast, heavy, and highly melodic music with an intense passion and energy. The band's classic influences are worn proudly, yet Vänlade's music is no clone or throwback. Soaring vocals, shredding dual-guitar acrobatics, and a tight, driving rhythm section are the band's calling card. In Vänlade's music, pure power, speed, and melody triumph over today's metal trends of angst and dissonent chugging.
The band has released two full length albums including 2015's underground critical success "Rage of the Gods," and are currently working on their third.
