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.”
