Valkyrie – Driven by brothers Jake and Pete Adams, Valkyrie draws from pre-metal style to create a rich and earthy heavy rock sound. Valkyrie’s twin harmonized guitar leads and clean dual vocal assault matched with a strong nod to classic doom and heavy metal creates a psychedelic and heavy sound that pays homage to classic heavy rock bands like DEEP PURPLE and THIN LIZZY while bringing to mind the pastoral and organic sounds of PAGAN ALTAR and JETHRO TULL. With no regard to current trends, or retro-rock posturing, Valkyrie rides on with a true, classic, heavy metal assault that has turned many heads with its impressive live shows and soul-stirring conviction.
Salvaticus – Bleak black metal in the hands of rural Virginians geographically separated from the cold Scandinavian terrain from whence it spawned. It’s a little less wintry and a little more mysterious here. Compositions designed to project intensity and fantastical, unreal destinations.
Horsefang – Melodic doom from the rolling hills of the Monticello area.
