VED started as a solo-project by Mattias Nihlén taking inspiration from film music, progressive rock, early electronic music and folk music. From a more drone-based ambient, the music has developed into a rhythmic machinery with elements of horror movie soundtracks, surf-rock and found cassettes.

With their latest release "Spectra" they were nationally saluted and elected by press all over the country as the top artists and most interesting musicians when it comes to instrumental music.

VED is now also a fully developed live band delivering hypnotic instrumental rock music and, hands down, do the most transcendent live shows we´ve seen.
