Vallenfyre Preview New Album

Vallenfyre premiered a new Swedish sounding track, “Nihilist” (Get it?) from their upcoming album, Fear Those Who Fear Him, which comes out June 2nd on Century Media. “Nihilist” is nothing special in the grand scheme of things but is not nearly as godawful as much of the metalcore pretending to be metal today. The earlier preview track, “An Apathetic Grave”, was reminiscent of Autopsy, one of the main influences on Entombed, Carnage, Dismember, and Grave.

To further whet your appetite for “Fear Those Who Fear Him”, the third album by crusty death/doom outfit VALLENFYRE, and also allow you a sneak peek at its wonderful vinyl edition, here is “Nihilist”, a short and vicious assault on all senses.

Guitarist/vocalist Greg Mackintosh (Paradise Lost) comments:
“Nihilist is about those who take their ridiculous holy book seriously and carry it out to the letter. In light of recent events it is dedicated to the innocent victims of the Manchester attack.”

Scheduled for worldwide release via CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS on June 2, 2017, “Fear Those Who Fear Him” is an unforgiving musical mixture of death, doom, grind, and crust offering 12 ferocious new tracks. “Fear Those Who Fear Him” is available for pre-order on CD, LP and digital download at http://smarturl.it/VallenfyreFTWFH

    This track consists of two parts: One ripped out of Enchanted Land (Persecution Mania) and one were a guy shouts “Nihilist”.

      Hear hear.

      All I could come up with was “meh”. An achievement in a way as the song clocks less than two and a half minutes. Here’s hoping the album has more to offer. At least, the constant rythm guitar feedback (yes yes, you’ve got an HM-2 dialed to eleven and all that) seems less present compared to Splinters.

    ?

    Vinly-fetishism, vocal-dominated verse/ chorus/ verse songs with catchy chorus melodies and highly distorted chord-playing background guitar during the verses, short, instrumental bridges with blues-derived guitar solos and “Religion, Society, Death, Relationships, Politics” as lyrical themes (Encyclopedia Metallum).

    WTF?

    1. Rainer Weikusat says:

      Something I forgot to include: If this is released or about to be released now, it was certainly recorded last year. In the light of recent events, it can be updated a little! “Desperate marketing” at its finest. How tact- and tasteful. And then, there’s also this ringing endorsement:

      Vallenfyre continue to sound like Slayer if Slayer were a blackened death metal band. The British trio’s moshtastic new track, “Nihilist,” is a corrosive sandblast straight to your nuts,

      published by you-can-guess-who. I should have written something nicer about Funebrarum recently: They’re not in the same class as, for example, Sadistic Intent, but certainly more alive when they’re asleep as this ‘corrosive’ slow-running liquid can ever hope to become.
