VALLENFYRE to hit the road in Autumn

to hit the road in Autumn
What started in late 2010 as a project by Paradise Lost guitarist Greg Mackintosh became a real band. The 2011 debut album “A Fragile King” was hailed as one of the best Death Metal albums of the year and the band took it even further in doom, death and crust realms with the latest album “Splinters” that was recorded and produced by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Black Breath, Beastmilk, etc.) in Salem, Massachusetts.

So far Greg, Scoot (Doom), Hamish Glencross (ex-My Dying Bride) and Adrian Erlandsson (At The Gates, Paradise Lost, The Haunted) only played a handful of selected shows. But now it’s time to present “Splinters” on a full tour across Europe. The tour starts with their old mates Bolt Thrower and label mates Morgoth, and moves on to their own headlining shows.

Greg Mackintosh: “The upcoming shows will be something new for us as a band. So far we have only done one club gig in Finland and that was our first ever show. Every other show we have played has been as part of a festival so this will be our first proper club tour together. With equal parts excitement and trepidation we will venture into the unknown and spread some unspeakable filth over Europe.”

Press on “Splinters”:
“It’s masterful melding of Hellhammer / Celtic Frost, Nihilist / Entombed, Autopsy, Discharge and various other influences deliver a rare treat for lovers of old-school death metal and crustpunk.” Metal Hammer UK, 8 points review

“Vallenfyre squelch their way through fetid piles of deathly riffs and growls with more genuine morbidity than most of the young pups who weren’t born when Gregor was first hacking up these sorts of riffs.” Kerrang, 4k review
