Valkyrie (Baroness) signs with Relapse Records

Thursday, July 31, 2014 3:18 PM PT


Official press release:

Relapse Records is proud to announce the signing of Virginia hard rock riff worshippers Valkyrie. Formed in 2002, Valkyrie consists of brothers Jake and Pete Adams (Baroness, Samhain) on guitar and vocals, Alan Fary (Earthling) on bass and Warren Hawkins on drums. Drawing heavily from the classic eras of hard rock and heavy metal, Valkyrie play guitar driven rock n' roll replete with infectious solos and catchy, powerful vocals. The band has drawn numerous comparisons to greats like Thin Lizzy, Scorpions, Black Sabbath, early Iron Maiden, and Deep Purple.

The quartet has released two full-lengths along with a series of EPs and singles. Valkyrie recently recorded their first full-length in over 7 years at Earth Analog Studios in Champaign, IL with producer Sanford Parker (Nachtmystium, Pelican) earlier this month. The eight song album will see an early 2015 release via Relapse.

Guitarist/vocalist Jake Adams commented on the signing and new material:

"We are really excited about this new record. Some of these songs we have been working on for many years and we are glad to see them have a proper release on an excellent label. This new record will be a step up in terms of song dynamics and musicianship from the previous albums. We think our fans will dig the fresh approach to the classic Valkyrie sound."

I'm annoyed. My friend resides on the floor above me. He had no visitors for 2 years. Over recent weeks this changed and he grew great at attracting any women he wants. He found the Master Attraction web page (Start looking in Google) by Jake Ayres. Now all he does everyday is bang women. He's continually pulling ladies back and I can't help but hear it, every night. He makes them moan really loud! My best friend just signed up and got a favor later that day.

Awesome music, just preordered the shirt+ablum bundle. I'm sure these guys will be really big someday. Even though I already preordered this album I heard it's leaked already so I will hopefully be buying a copy of this album because of how purely amazing it is, the vocals, guitars, drums all flow into something that explodes with perfection. Im sure you guys already know, but these guys kick ass!
