London based Death Valley Knights are poised to deliver a razor sharp slice of modern hard rock with new EP ‘Valhalla Vintage’ & new single and video.
Co-produced by acclaimed producer Scott Atkins (Cradle of Filth, Amon Amarth, Sylosis), the band are confident this is their best material to date. Working tirelessly to get the best sounds and performances for each track, Scott and the band were pleased with the results.
“Working with Scott was such an experience. No matter how long, how many takes, he would not let us settle for less than our best so we can confidently say that this is our finest music to date,” says Jake Thorsen. “I think people will be impressed and we’ve really raised the bar for ourselves.”
Blending the traditional metal of Judas Priest and Motorhead with contemporary influences, Death Valley Knights have played shows throughout the UK to build their loyal fan base over the years. Their singles ‘Promises’ & ‘Tongue Of Fire’, garnered significant airplay on the likes Kerrang Radio, XFM and Team Rock and regional stations across the country. Their debut E.P ‘Nothing Left To Steal’ was well received, and with strong reviews from Kerrang, Metal Hammer, Terrorizer, Zero Tolerance and Metal Temple, the first physical press completely sold out. The band continued to tour the UK in support, playing Bloodstock Festival and later on alongside Dragonforce, Absolva, Savage Messiah, Fallen Fate, Arthemis and Falling Red, culminating in a show stopping performance at Hammerfest 2014, on a bill that featured Overkill, Kreator, Grand Magus and many more.
