Commented drummer Sxuperion on the live shows and upcoming new tunes: "We always look forward to the live event, as we very much appreciate and respect the energy and effort that is required to provide Valdur's music immediately! Otherwise, Valdur has basically kept our determination focused upon the writing of many new songs that will see themselves appear on a new full-length release. We are buried in ten to 20 feet of snow in town which is very conducive to writing and creating. The new songs are faster and more intense than anything that Valdur has released thus far. This new full-length will be finished and out when we say so."
