VALLENFYRE's Greg Mackintosh (vocals/lead guitars) comments: "'The Great Divide' is a song about corrupt, greedy figureheads sending brainwashed youths to kill and be killed in wars, mainly just to further these leaders' clandestine plans. Musically it is quite a dissonant, full on song to reflect the subject matter."
Best known as a founding member of UK Gothic Metal pioneers PARADISE LOST, Greg Mackintosh transformed the anger and sadness ensuing the loss of his father into VALLENFYRE's Death/Doom/Crust debut, A Fragile King (2011). This heartfelt and cathartic release is now followed-up by the even more abrasive and extreme second full-length, Splinters. Inspired by the likes of HELLHAMMER/CELTIC FROST, AUTOPSY, ANTISECT, DISCHARGE, NIHILIST, early NAPALM DEATH, early BATHORY, and CONFLICT, VALLENFYRE continues to dig deep into the roots of extreme music-- yet due to Greg's infallible song-writing skills, as well as the crushing sound courtesy of producer Kurt Ballou (CONVERGE, BLACK BREATH, BEASTMILK), Splinters is far from mere nostalgia.
Splinters will be released on May 12th in Europe and on May 13th in North America via Century Media Records. For a preview of Splinters, be sure to check out these previously released tracks:
