This band hails from Sweden and sets things on fire through music! After their critically acclaimed re-release of their debut full-length “The Invocation Of Demise” they unleash "Contamination” upon humanity. It’s the 1st official release for VALKYRJA on Metal Blade.
VALKYRJA is black, menacing, evil, dark, sinister and hateful. Maybe these attributes apply to many other bands in this scene, but VALKYRJA have one advantage: They manage to channel their hate into gripping and always rhythmic songs. They are no purists - VALKYRJA also include atmospheric elements as well as elements of Thrash and Death Metal.
The burst of their negative emotions is focused, their energy is well bundled, their rage grips you by the neck, their darkness pulls you down.
Riffs at breakneck speed and a brutal velocity meet grandiose melodies and epic arrangements, unifying all virtues of black metal on “Contamination”, a record which will appeal to all fans of the genre, from NAGLFAR over NECROPHOBIC to IMMORTAL. Metal Blade and VALKYRJA – a covenant of blood, fire and death!
