about

Propelled by the stunning guitar heroics of brothers Pete and Jake Adams, Virginia's VALKYRIE return after a five year hiatus to deliver Shadows, one of the year's best guitar-driven, heavy rock records. Jam packed with harmonized leads, rich solos and melodic, blues-based riffs, VALKYRIE sound like the perfect blend of Thin Lizzy and Saint Vitus. Where Pete Adams' other band Baroness focuses more on the proggy and poppy side of metal, VALKYRIE is all about southern fried and whiskey soaked hard rockin' guitar jams. Produced by Sanford Parker (Pelican, Leviathan, YOB), Shadows is the perfect summer heavy rock record!!

Track Name: Mountain Stomp
You know how hard I try

To remove this cage from my mind

The secret to living well

Is to break through your mortal shell

The world is nothing but a show

Empty, vain and so cold

The secret to living life

Is freeing yourself from desire
Track Name: Golden Age
High-born sage brought forth from the heavens

Came with signs to mark his birth

Golden age – of wisdom and virtue

Time of justice for the earth

The Day arrived- foretold by the ancients

Healing hatred with his pen

Claim denied – and facing rejection

Forced to leave his countrymen

Golden Age – Sacred Way

Another Day – Slow Decay

Third eye darkened - a clouded vision

Sun obscured by worldly dust

Misled masses – misguided leaders

Cherished wisdom turns to rust

Quest for knowledge - a thirst for power

Words perverted to control

Progress stifled – the souls left searching

Years of darkness take their toll

Golden Age – Sacred Way

Another Day – Slow Decay
