Before VALLENFYRE debuts their video for "Cathedrals Of Dread" next week (more details soon), you can now watch a preview of the video shoot, plus interviews with all band members. To see VALLENFYRE behind-the-scenes, watch here
VALLENFYRE is the brainchild of Gregor Mackintosh (songwriter and guitarist of PARADISE LOST), along with members of MY DYING BRIDE, AT THE GATES, and DOOM. VALLENFYRE is not a one-off project-- they will continue as a band that will also play live in 2012. The full line-up is:
Gregor Mackintosh (PARADISE LOST) - Vocals and Lead Guitar
Hamish Glencross (MY DYING BRIDE) - Rhythm and Lead Guitars
Mully - Rhythm Guitars
Scoot (DOOM, EXTINCTION OF MANKIND) - Bass
Adrian Erlandsson (AT THE GATES, PARADISE LOST) - Drums
A Fragile King will be available as CD, limited Digipak (incl. bonus track) and 180gr vinyl LP (incl. the bonus track and a poster). The vinyl is limited to:
- 200 copies on clear vinyl
- 100 copies on gold/black marbled vinyl
- the black vinyl is not limited
And everybody who really wants to buy a digital copy of the album can do it via iTunes and the likes, but it won't sound as good as on vinyl. In case you don't have a record player, you should ask Santa Claus NOW because in 3 years the world will collapse and there won't be electricity to run your CD players and iPods any more-- while you can still play your vinyl with a Gramophone!
"A Fragile King is a beast of a record that is emblazoned with some of the best death, doom and crust punk you'll hear this year." -- Terrorizer, UK
"VALLENFYRE's debut album blends Mackintosh's early influences-a bit of Celtic Frost, bloody stumps of Autopsy, Nihilist's frosty heaviness, the dissonance of Amebix, Discharge's no-frills drive, a sustained riff or two from Candlemass, and Trouble's doomed tendencies-- into a sonic force that bites deep and hard." -- Decibel Magazine, US
