Canadian Viking/folk metal band, VALFREYA announce their 10 song debut album ‘Path To Eternity’ will have its North American release on May 22nd via Maple Metal Records. The official worldwide release date will be on July 4th.
Formed in February of 2009, VALFREYA is a six member band from Montreal, Canada. The band’s frontwoman, Crook, has a vocal range of symphonic clean vocals to that of guttural growls. Crook is the main composer of ‘Path to Eternity’ along with key contributions from guitar player Graz’zt, keyboardist Shark, and all the band members.
Influenced by bands like Moonsorrow, Equilibrium, Arkona and Wintersun, VALFREYA portray a more aggressive and energetic take on the folk metal genre.
‘Path to Eternity’ was produced by the band, and was recorded, mixed and mastered in the Fall of 2011 at Silver Wings Studio in Montreal, Canada.
With ‘Path to Eternity’ you’ll get carried away to an era where myths and legends are an everyday reality. Thus, Bookaking Productions, Montreal, Canada have produced an Epic Movie Battles Montage to highlight Valfreya’s song “Confront Immensity”.
