Valafar + Blood Oath
Formed in late 2013, Valafar is a Death Metal band from Bradford, West Yorkshire.
Valafar have released two full length albums ‘Helheim’ (2015) and ‘Wolfenkind’ (2018), both which have attained excellent reviews and recognition from press and fans alike.
Valafar have built a solid reputation in the UK underground scene through their powerful live performances having shared the stage with internationally recognised bands such as Grand Magus, Orange Goblin, Evile and Manegarm to name a few.
Valafar have performed relentlessly across the UK playing to packed stages at Bloodstock, HRH Vikings and Manorfest amongst others. With numerous shows lined up across Europe and the UK for 2020 Valafar are constantly looking to break new ground.
In their own words Blood Oath are "catchy old school death metal drenched in the (fake) blood of their enemies…"
Since forming in 2017 Blood Oath have triumphed on their travels of the United Kingdom playing to huge audiences at Bloodstock Open Air, Uprising and HRH Metal. Their journey took them to Bucharest in Romania to play The Metalhead Meeting Festival with the likes of Kataklysm, Soulfly, Children Of Bodom and much more.
To the accidental tourist they are a prowling venomous warrior daubed in war paint barking orders at a blood-soaked band, assaulting the ears with the sound of a rusty train crashing into a Viking horde. To the discerning death metal fan however they are the face ripping gurn of the riff, the chanting call to arms and the urge to start a sweat soaked pit.
