Forged in an inferno of fury and virility and described as brutal violent medieval metal, Valkyrie’s Cry is a heavy metal outfit bent on restoring the transcendent values that metal once stood for. Valkyrie’s Cry crafts music that celebrates the war-like and assertive spirit through a sonic display of strength, passion and musical virtuosity.
The band initially started in 2004 as a collaboration between Dip Evil and Lord Justin Godin. In their endeavour to create the perfect heavy metal sound they worked with various musicians and eventually recorded their first demo in the year 2005. It was acclaimed in the underground as a ferocious work of old-school heavy metal. Meanwhile the band played shows alongside acts such as Gamma Ray, Dragon Lord, Anvil and others.
By the spring of 2007, however, Dip and Justin were on the lookout for a stable and permanent line-up. After confirming the Swordbrothers festival and parting ways with old warriors, they were on the hunt for some mighty warriors who could deliver the goods. After months of searching, Carlos (Lord Kilian) and Kaveh joined within the same week, and played like the most disciplined and ferocious swordsmen. Valkyrie’s Cry played the Swordbrothers Festival in Germany, playing alongside bands such as Sacred Steel and Blitzkrieg. After a show in Toronto, opening for Kamelot, the band recorded their full length self-titled début at the end of the year 2008. Recorded at Toronto’s Metal-Works studio and released by the German Pure-Steel Records, this album takes the barbaric sound of the band to new heights of power and fury while exhibiting a more precise display of musicianship from all members.
The new album is to be released on May-22-2009 by PureSteel records. Stay tuned for updates and samples.
