Valkyrja Discography of CDs


Invocation of Demise Invocation of Demise CD (2009)
CD $13.85 Buy It  Details
Valkyrja music CDs The Swedish band Valkyrja play fast, head-down, back-to-basics black metal in the spirit of early Marduk, Gorgoroth, Watain, etc. Their music isn't particularly innovative, but the production is of a higher quality than the genre's artists sometimes settle for, and their ability to write crunching, headbang-worthy riffs is undeniable. Vocalist A.L. has an emphatic, guttural croak that's powerful but also ugly in a compelling way. The occasional sonic surprise, like the acoustic guitar that introduces several songs and provides an interlude in the middle of the otherwise furious and brutal "Plague Death," or the atmospheric instrumental "On Stillborn Wings," which splits the album's two halves, adds to the impact of their basic sound. The thunderous drumming can't be discounted, either -- in a genre that frequently settles for deliberately thin and staticky sound, Valkyrja's pounding beat is practically tympani-esque. While the basic template from which these Swedes are operating will be instantly familiar to black metal fans, there's enough here that's uniquely their own to vault Valkyrja out of the pack and make them worthy of attention. [This 2007 release was reissued by Metal Blade in 2009.] ~ Phil Freeman Recording information: 03/30/2007-04/08/2007.
Contamination Contamination CD (2010)

Valkyrja discography Want a short, straight-to-the-point review of Valkyrja's 2010 offering, Contamination? OK, here we go -- "A runaway freight train of metal." That may sum it up, but that simply won't cut it for an album review, so let's proceed a bit further...this Swedish extreme metal outfit is all about pushing metal to the max. All of the prerequisites for an extreme metal band are present, but somehow, the Valkyrja chaps take it all to the next level. Picture the perfect soundtrack for a speeding roller coaster with a brake malfunction (how's that for a description?) and you still wouldn't come close to understanding how unbridled and crazed Contamination sounds. You'll probably be best served by just simply strapping yourself in and preparing for impact, as such ditties as "Oceans to Dust," "Catharsis (Contaminate the Earth)," and "Welcoming Worms" are among the most ferocious compositions to be committed to tape (or perhaps more fittingly in the early 21st century, "audio file") in recent ...
