Best known as a founding member of UK’s Gothic Metal pioneers PARADISE LOST, Greg Mackintosh transformed the anger and sadness ensuing the loss of his father into VALLENFYRE‘s death/doom/crust debut “A Fragile King” back in 2011. This heartfelt and cathartic release is now followed-up by the even more abrasive and extreme second full-length “Splinters”.Inspired by the likes of HELLHAMMER/CELTIC FROST, AUTOPSY, ANTISECT, DISCHARGE, NIHILIST, early NAPALM DEATH, early BATHORY, and CONFLICT, Vallenfyre continues to dig deep into the roots of extreme music. Yet due to Greg’s infallible song-writing skills, as well as the crushing sound courtesy of producer Kurt Ballou (CONVERGE, BLACK BREATH, BEASTMILK), “Splinters” is far from mere nostalgia.
