Vallenfyre  


Vallenfyre was founded by Paradise Lost guitarist Gregor Mackintosh, seeking an outlet to musically grieve, so to speak, the death of his father. He hooked up with another doomdeath guy in Hamish Glencross (My Dying Bride), eventually a proper band was fleshed out, and the result was 2011's A Fragile King. King is a doomy death album without question, but only occasionally does it really touch on the classic doomdeath sound for which Mackintosh and Glencross are famous. More often this is old-school, Swedish-style death metal (Entombed comes to mind, especially given that biting raw guitar tone) with some darker tones a la prime Celtic Frost. It's not terribly contemporary nor really that adventurous, but it's a well above average death metal album done right by guys in the know.
