Vallenfyre ‘Splinters’ out now!

The second album by VALLENFYRE is hit the stores this week with a relentless mix of death, doom and crust. And the band is proud to premier the video for the title track through Metal Hammer UK.

Greg Mackintosh (vocals, guitar):

“We wanted to make an unconventional video for a crushingly, dark song. The title track Splinters , whilst not the most obvious choice musically because of its ultra slow tempo made perfect sense when taken in context with the lyrics. There was never even discussion of a typical performance video as they are generally the style that 99% of metal bands choose, which is fine but we wanted to make a short film. Using a cinematography style set somewhere between the film Begotten and F.W.Murnau’s Nosferatu ,the video tells the story of a man who finds a splinter growing from his side and as his condition worsens, the embodiment of his disease tries to take a hold. Hopefully this makes for a more interesting video than us just banging our heads, which no doubt we will be doing on stage sometime soon.”
