Viking Metal from Canada
Valfreya is a symphonic Viking metal band from Montréal, Quebec, Canada. The band was created in February 2009 by Korrinn (Corinne Cardinal), female singer and main composer. Her compositions have a much more aggressive musical sound than typical folk metal. Over the years many members joined and left to finally settle with the band’s current lineup who all bring their own musical ideas to the group.
Their first EP offers a lively, energetic and epic music which will quench listeners’ musical thirst with a both symphonic and beautiful yet powerful style.
They released the full album “Path to Eternity” on February 2012 on the label “Maple Metal Records”.
This album will carry you to an era of myths and legends. It delivers a catchy and aggressive epic style within the Viking folk metal genre. “Path to Eternity” is an impressive piece of work on all levels; music, concept and artwork. It will not only please folk metal fans but also those in need of a good dose of mead with their daily brutality.
The Viking metallers have put aside their electric guitars and released a totally acoustic EP entitled “Acoustic Chronicles” in May 2013, supported by many acoustic live shows.
The band is currently working on a new album to be released next spring 2016.
