Vallenfyre will release their second full length album, Splinters, via Century Media on May 13th. This time around the band recorded with Kurt Ballou, and his trademark guitar sound really helps to add that extra burst of intensity to the old-school death metal guitar tone. Check out the track “Scabs” below as well as additional information.

On May 12th in Europe and on May 13th in North America, VALLENFYRE’s second full-length, Splinters, will be released via Century Media Records. For a preview of
Splinters, the album’s first single, “Scabs”, can now be heard online in full at Stereogum.com:

Best known as a founding member of UK gothic metal pioneers PARADISE LOST, Greg Mackintosh (vocals/lead guitars) 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.

 

VALLENFYRE line-up:

Greg Mackintosh (PARADISE LOST) – Vocals and Lead Guitars

Hamish Glencross (MY DYING BRIDE) – Rhythm and Lead Guitars

Scoot (DOOM, EXTINCTION OF MANKIND) – Bass

Adrian Erlandsson (AT THE GATES, PARADISE LOST, THE HAUNTED) – Drums
