Second album from Vallenfyre

DEATH metallers Vallenfyre have released their second album Splinters via Century Media Records.

They have also given us the video for the title track, below.

Frontman Greg Mackintosh - best known as a founding member of UK goth metal pioneers Paradise Lost - said: "We wanted to make an unconventional video for a crushingly, dark song. The title track Splinters , whilst not the most obvious choice musically because of its ultra slow tempo made perfect sense when taken in context with the lyrics. 

"There was never even discussion of a typical performance video as they are generally the style that 99% of metal bands choose, which is fine, but we wanted to make a short film. Using a cinematography style set somewhere between the film Begotten and F.W.Murnau's Nosferatu, the video tells the story of a man who finds a splinter growing from his side and as his condition worsens, the embodiment of his disease tries to take a hold. 

"Hopefully this makes for a more interesting video than us just banging our heads, which no doubt we will be doing on stage sometime soon."
