English old school death metal band Vallenfyre are streaming a new track exclusively at Terrorizer.
The song's titled "Scabs" and it comes to introduce the band's upcoming album Splinters, which is due on May 12 through Century Media Records. Sound production duties were undertaken by Kurt Ballou (Converge).
Band main-man Greg Mackintosh (of Paradise Lost fame) had the following to say about the new album:
Vallenfyre was something I felt utterly compelled to do. It was almost like I didn’t have a choice. I was told by a bereavement counselor that I should write down and vocalize my feelings. I did just that and then everything just seemed to take a natural course.
We were very pleased with our debut album as a dirty mix of all our earliest death, doom and crust influences. On the follow-up, we want to take this much further and develop our own niche. It will be a stench-ridden, grim, face-melter that will separate the men from the boys.
