W.T.C. PRODUCTIONS announces November 11th as the international release date for VALKYRJA’s long-awaited new album, The Antagonist’s Fire. VALKYRJA’s third album to date and first for W.T.C., The Antagonist’s Firefollows their critically acclaimed second album, Contamination, released in 2010 by Metal Blade. Furious yet poised, feral yet professional, here the Swedish black metal kings go from strength to strength, employing a variety of tempos and textures – including a pronounced usage of classic heavy metal lead work – whilst staying deadly committed to timeless black metal orthodoxy. Each track explodes into burning black fire and reaches near-anthem status before song’s end, twisting the listener into a state of feverish possession.
