Label: Valkyre Rising

Review by Tony Cannella

From Belgium, the melodic metal band Valkyre were formed in 2004, but have only now just released their debut full-length “Our Glorious Demise”.

“Our Glorious Demise” consists of 10-songs and 41-minutes worth of great music and songs that are as memorable as they are infectious. Lead vocalist Claudia has a clear, clean and instantly likeable voice which is quite evident from the opening track “Stories”. This song starts of with a slower tempo before picking up and to a racing, galloping pace. “Call of the Valkyrie” is a burst power metal passion and the following song “A Good Day to Die” has a ton of atmosphere. Other highlights included: “Walk My Love”, “Consolamentum” and “Whispering Thoughts”.

“Our Glorious Demise” is a gloriously melodic and infectious album and one that should please fans who like their metal brimming with melody.

Rating – 85/100
