Newsflash: Valfreya launches Indiegogo Drive for new album!

RockmusicRaider Newsflash - Valfreya 2015The Montréal based Viking metallers Valfreya launched an Indiegogo drive to enable recording and release for their new upcoming album Promised Land, due for 2016. This newest magic potion will follow their former productions Acoustic Chronicles (2013) and Path to Eternity (2012), signed to Maple Metal Records.

The band formed back in 2009, founded by Korrinn, female front and main composer. The band employs a very varied style, ranging from Black Metal infused Viking metal, over Folk and Pagan Metal to totally acoustic Medieval pieces. Some of that delivered in French, no kidding.

The new album will likely feature a cover story about a conqueror and his warriors who came from the North. He will finally discover his promised land, but will also meet Odin’s divine wrath.  [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!

Just look at the logo and be amazed.  [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!
