The June 2nd release date nears for Vallenfyre‘s third album, ‘Fear Those Who Fear Him‘, to be issued via Century Media Records. I am pretty excited as I have been on board with Vallenfyre, the brainchild of Paradise Lost’s Gregor Mackintosh, since I first discovered them.
Joining guitarist/vocalist Gregor for the new album is the core of Hamish Glencross (guitar and bass) and Waltteri Väyrynen (drums). ‘Fear Those Who Fear Him’ was once again produced by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Nails, etc.) at God City Studios in Salem, MA and mastered by Brad Boatright (Obituary, Beastmilk, YOB) at Audiosiege Mastering in Portland, OR. The cover artwork was created by Hal Rotter (rottinggraphics.com).

Today, Vallenfyre presents the first single and video clip to ‘Kill All Your Masters‘ from the new effort. Greg Mackintosh (vocals and guitar) comments:
“’Kill All Your Masters’ is about the frustration and anger we feel towards the many people and regimes in positions of power, whether it be political, religious or corporate, inflicting crimes and injustices on an often docile and enslaved population, who in many ways seem happy to be told what to do by anything from ancient books to lifestyle magazines.”
