Vallenfyre To Record Second Album In 2014

In 2011, Gregor Mackintosh (Paradise Lost) announced that he would go back to his death metal roots with his new band, Vallenfyre.

The level of expectation was set high with a line-up consisting of Hamish Glencross (guitar; My Dying Bride), Scoot (bass; Extinction of Mankind), Adrian Erlandsson (drums; At The Gates) local friend Mully (second guitar) - and of course, Gregor on vocals (for the first time in his career).

Their debut, "A Fragile King," was a reference to Gregor's father's lost battle with cancer. Two years and some exclusive live shows later, Vallenfyre is pleased to announce that the band will begin recording the follow-up to "A Fragile King" in January 2014 at GodCity Studio in Salem, MA. Produced by Kurt Ballou, this currently untitled opus will see the crusty death-doom merchants take their sound to new extremes.

Gregor Mackintosh comments: "We were very pleased with our debut album as a dirty mix of all our earliest death, doom and crust influences. On the follow-up, we want to take this much further and develop our own niche. It will be a stench-ridden, grim, face-melter that will separate the men from the boys."

Vallenfyre's second album is scheduled for a worldwide release in April 2014 via Century Media Records. In case you missed "A Fragile King," be sure to check out the music video for "Cathedrals Of Dread" below.
