Valkyrian festival announces more bands

Announced to join a line-up that has been hailed by fans as "strong and epic", Liverpuddlian black metal warlords Ethereal, who recently completed a string of UK dates with black metal legends Gorgoroth, have been added to the bill.

While Enkelination, who are a band to look out for on the female-fronted metal scene and are fronted by Finnish vocalist Elina, are the second band to be announced this month. The trio will be releasing their new album, Tears of Lust on 21st July this year with the release show a week later at The Underworld in London supporting Imperia.

In related news, Aonia, Alice In Thunderland and Crooked Lizard have been confirmed for The Road Of Valhalla on 6th September at Basement in Bridlington. The Road Of Valhalla is a series of three shows taking place before this year's Valkyrian Festival and will act as official warm-up shows for the festival itself.

Added to the final day of the festival are Spanish gothic metallers Tears Of Martyr. Having started as a doom metal band, the band’s sound soon developed in something darker featuring a lot of the key elements found in their music now. Tears Of Martyr have in the past opened for the likes of Epica, Draconian and Dark Tranquillity. Their next album, Tales, is set for release on 26th April 2014 through Massacre Records.

Announced alongside Tears Of Martyr are the festival’s special guests for this year Kent-based rabid thrash/death metallers Wretched Soul. Hailed as “a rising star in the underground thrash metal scene” by Musicosis, the quartet are a fine addition to the festival. The band comment:

Wretched Soul are very excited to be performing at Valkyrian Festival 2014 and to once again be sharing a festival stage with our good friends, Reign of Fury, alongside Bharghest and so many other great bands. Good cause, great crowd. It’s cool to be playing Bridlington again as well, which is one of the most metal towns we’ve played so far! See you there!
