Further three bands to Valkyrian Festival 2013

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on 16th July 2013 by Nico Davidson

Already bolstering a line-up that spans from viking metal to industrial and touching on other genres in between, Valkyrian Festival have announced a further three bands to this year’s bill. Confirmed for the Friday are Nottingham’s very own buccaneers of pirate metal Red Rum, who have also recently been confirmed for the Warhorns Festival. Red Rum will be joining Ravenage, Dead Man’s Conspiracy and Scotland’s djentlemen Storm of Embers on the first night of Valk-Fest.

Added to the more extreme metal stylings of Saturday are Leeds-based extreme metal tyrants Lammergeier who will be bringing their devilishly heavy sound which will no doubt go down well alongside the other other extreme metal acts on the bill such as Scottish corporate black metallers Maelstrom and fellow Yorkshire band Narcotic Death whose vocalist can apparently castrate a cat from a distance of 400 yards. And for industrial fans, Sheffield-based industrial duo The Gifted have been confirmed to play the final night of Valk-Fest 2013 with acts such as Spekulus, Powercake, Dakesis and Yorkshire’s most violently brutal band Severed Heaven.

First bands announced for Valkyrian Festival 2013

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 23rd January 2013 by Nico Davidson

Once again, Shades Nightclub in Bridlington will play host to Valkyrian Festival on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December. The event, organised by Valkyrian Music editor Nick Taylor – who is better known by his pen name Nico Davidson, aims to raise money, this year, for RapeCrisis.

Confirmed already for the three day event are British melodic metallers Nya who have been making a lot of noise down south. With two EPs already under their belt, as well as a headline performance on the Doghouse Stage at Download 2011 and an appearance coming up at this year’s Metal Days Festival in Slovenia, the band are ready to raise hell for charity. Nya frontwoman Anezka commented, saying: “It’s a privilege to be playing this years Valk-Fest, joining a line-up of great bands to support RapeCrisis, a truly great cause. So prepare yourself for a hard hitting wall of metal and don’t forget to buckle in for the ride! See you there! Nya.”

Joining Nya on the second day of the event, will be Yorkshire doom-death outfit Narcotic Death. Having formed in 2007, the band have gone onto gain infamy in the Yorkshire area for their unique blending of Yorkshire-styled doom and death metal, which has led to their music being described as “the soundtrack to Paranormal Activity”. Narcotic Death’s vocalist Alex commented: “We look forward to bringing our brand of terror to such a worthy cause and what will be an exceptional festival.

Also, confirmed alongside Nya and Narcotic Death is the UK’s finest folklore-orientated black metal overlords Old Corpse Road. The five-piece outfit have written a dark and brooding legacy over the years they’ve been on the scene and have taken their heathen anthems to some of the UK’s premier festivals such as Bloodstock, Warhorns and Metieval. With a vast collection of mystifying compositions, it will be witching hour at Valkyrian Festival when Old Corpse Road take to the stage.

And for fans of bands such as Nightwish, Sarah Jezebel Deva and Delain, Worksop-based operatic metallers Aonia will also be returning to the Valkyrian Festival stage. Described as “England’s answer to Finland’s Nightwish and Sweden’s Therion”, Aonia are excited to be bring their own unique style to Valkyrian Festival.

Valkyrian Music have also organised a Battle of the Bands where the winning band earns themselves a slot at the festival. The single round BOTB will take place on Saturday 27th April at Shades Nightclub, Bridlington. Confirmed to compete so far are Lipstick Sunbeam, Seconds Apart and Fallen Angel. The winning band will determined by the audience and tickets will be available on the door for £2.

Weekend tickets are available for pre-order via Valkyrian Music’s BigCartel store and are priced at only £5 each (excluding postage and packaging) and for those who like to keep the party going, there will be an after party each night at Shades Nightclub which will be free for all ticket holders (£1 for non-ticket holders). The after parties will be DJ’ed by resident DJ Steve Hall, who plays only the best in rock and metal and to sweeten the deal, there will also be give aways and raffles at the event.

There is also an active JustGiving page set up to help raise money before and after the festival. The JustGiving page can be found at this location.
