Century Media has signed U.K. death metal band Vallenfyre. I had never heard of this band before the signing, but they look mean.
“I was already blown away by Vallenfyre’s old school orgy of doomy and crusty death metal riffs when I heard the first demo last winter,” says Jens Prueter, the head of A&R for Century Media Records Europe.
“I couldn’t hesitate to offer them a deal straight away,” he adds. “That’s how we signed Grave and Asphyx over 20 years ago — and we all know that it was a good decision. So welcome to another chapter of Century Media’s death metal legacy.”
Isn’t it a little early to be lauding this band as the next thing in death metal? Vallenfyre’s debut album A Fragile King is already recorded and will be released in late October.
The band is recommended for those who dig Entombed, Celtic Frost, Autopsy, and Amebix.
