Reviews for A Fragile King are already rolling in! Be sure to pick up your copy in stores and online starting next week.

"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, TROUBLE's doomed tendencies--into a sonic force that bites deep and hard." -- Decibel Magazine, US

"A Fragile King is as dark as it comes without being bleak: screaming against grief, never succumbing to hopelessness, always fighting. VALLENFYRE have created a compelling and moving album with an immense, towering sound. It is as powerful as it is cathartic." - About.com, US

VALLENFYRE is the brainchild of Gregor Mackintosh (songwriter and guitarist of PARADISE LOST), along with members from 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 guitar
Mully - rhythm guitar
Scoot (DOOM, EXTINCTION OF MANKIND) - bass
Adrian Erlandsson (AT THE GATES, PARADISE LOST) - drums
