Valkyrie Shadows on LP + Download
Propelled by the stunning guitar heroics of brothers Pete and Jake Adams, Virginia's Valkyrie return with their third full length Shadows, one of the year's best guitar-driven, heavy rock records. Jam packed with harmonized leads, rich solos and melodic, blues-based riffs, Valkyrie sound like the perfect blend of American style doom rock bands like Pentagram or Spirit Caravan and classic hard rock like Thin Lizzy, Wishbone Ash, and Deep Purple.
Where Pete Adams' other band Baroness focuses more on the modern proggy and poppy side of metal, Valkyrie looks to proto-metal trailblazers for influence while injecting plenty of current day inspiration. Produced by Sanford Parker (Pelican, Leviathan, YOB), Shadows is the perfect summer heavy rock record!
"Blend fan-n-heavy cuts of traditional Vitus-stylied riffs with generous doses of luminous Thin Lizzy attitude, melodic Maiden guitar antics, and wrap it all up with some of the most delightfully harmonized vocals to be heard in heavy metal today - that's Valkyrie in a nutshell." - Last Rites
