VALDUR: Alpine Black/Death Occultists Issue Recording Update; New Song Posted

September 13th, 2012

Alpine black/death occultists VALDUR recently completed composing their upcoming, as-yet, untitled new full-length. Official recording sessions will commence on November 12th at Earhammer Studios. Additionally, VALDUR recently unleashed an ultra limited two-song EP entitled The Hammer Pit containing a rough version of two new songs. Taste the blood of track one, “Conjuring The Fire Plagues,” at the band’s Official BandCamp Page. When asked to talk about the upcoming new material, the band said in a collective statement: “We wish not to elaborate too much and allow the music that we will be putting out in the near future to do the talking.”

In the meantime, check out VALDUR live in the studio at KDVS at THIS LOCATION.

Hailing from Mammoth Lakes, California, VALDUR released Raven God Amongst Us in 2010 via Blood Mountain Records. The record proved to be an infernal masterpiece among the underground masses. Noted The Metal Crypt in a review of the record: “USBM is so often by the numbers that I am wary of it right out of the gate, but this is a band that remembers what is good about black metal, and does it very well indeed. Not an album to overlook,”About.com called the band, “the best black metal band in the United States that you’ve probably never heard of,” while Thrash Pit opined, “…a shimmering brand of black metal which pierces hearts rather than suffocates lungs.”

VALDUR: California Blackened Death Legion To Play Two Special Shows

January 25th, 2011

Mammoth Lakes, California blackened death horde VALDUR, who released their  Raven God Amongst Us full-length upon unsuspecting masses this past summer and are already working on new tunes, will bring their infernal rumblings to the live arena for two very special shows. The first will happen this coming Friday at The Blvd. in Boyle Heights, California. The second will be an appearance on the Oakland Black/Death Fest at the Metro Operhouse on Saturday March 12th. The band will be joined by headliners Dispirit, Necrite and Mutilation Rites among others. Check out both tour posters HERE.

Commented drummer Sxuperion on the live shows and upcoming new tunes: “We always look forward to the live event, as we very much appreciate and respect the energy and effort that is required to provide VALDUR’s music immediately! Otherwise, VALDUR has basically kept our determination focused upon the writing of many new songs that will see themselves appear on a new full-length release. We are buried in ten to 20 feet of snow in town which is very conducive to writing and creating. The new songs are faster and more intense than anything that VALDUR has released thus far. This new full-length will be finished and out when we say so.”

VALDUR Live
1/28/2011 The Blvd. – Boyle Heights, CA
3/12/2011 The Oakland Black/Death Fest @ The Metro Opera House – Oakland, CA

Black Metal Battalion VALDUR To Unleash Raven God Amongst Us; Cover Art, Track Listing + Tour Dates Revealed

July 2nd, 2010
Valdur - Raven God Amongst Us

Valdur - Raven God Amongst Us

VALDUR, California lords of all that is black and abysmal, are readying to unleash their long-awaited new full-length Raven God Amongst Us.  Featuring nine tracks of sonic decay, the self-financed/self-produced long player will be released via drummer Sxuperion’s own BloodyMountain Records.

Said Sxuperion of the infernal offering: ” The new full length is named after a song from our split with Lightning Swords Of Death that came out a couple of years ago. This all makes sense to us as it is another necessary piece of the dark and mysterious puzzle that is called ‘Creation.’ Once again, it is self-funded by the band and released on my own BloodyMountain Records, proof that we truly believe in what we are doing and how important it is at this time to delve deeper into the abyss that is VALDUR.”

Raven God Amongst Us follows the band’s limited two-song 7″ released via SatansMight/CultoftheHorns and the three-way split with Killgasm and Shitestrom released via ChristHammer Records earlier this year.

Raven God Amongst Us Track Listing
1. “Intro”
2. “Wound Fires In The Afterlife”
3. “Great Abyss Unfold”
4. “Gravlagt I Morkets Natt!”
5. “Med Fjell I Horisonten”
6. “Berserrker”
7. “Past Of Wolves”
8. “Vicious Existence”
9. “Creation”

In addition, VALDUR will embark on a rare set of live dates later this month. Confirmed dates thus far include:

7/16/2010 J.R.’s – Philadelphia, PA w/ Dekap Attak, Returner + TBA
7/17/2010 Union Pool – Brooklyn, NY w/ The Funeral Pyre, Early Grave and Mutilation RIghts
7/18/2010 KC’s Tap – Pawtucket, RI w/ Sin of Angels + TBA
7/19/2010 Lit Lounge – New York, NY w/ Mutilation Rites, Syphilitic Lust
7/21/2010 The Riot Room – Kansas City, MO w/ Stonehaven, Othis, Witchreign, Mithral
7/23/2010 Lucky Lady - Las Vegas, Nevada w/ Morbosidad, Ritual Combat, Sumeria, Obeisance
7/24/2010 Dog Pound – Salt Lake City, UT w/ Iconoclast Contra, Ritual Combat

“…one of the most promising black metal acts…in America today.” — Metal Flows In My Veins “First things first, ‘Raven God Amongst Us’ is basically black metal nirvana; this track spews sparks of brilliance, streaking trails of incandescent melody leaving wisps of joy within the brain. I could eat this song for breakfast….” — Metal Observer on the Lightning Swords Of Death/VALDUR split.
