VALDRIN - Announces Release Date Of Sophomore Album, Track Available For Streaming

Ohio (USA) based black/death metal mavericks Valdrin just announced that will release their second album entitled Two Carrion Talismans on 28th September via Blood Harvest Records and Helter Skelter Productions. Valdrin are one of the metal underground's best-kept secrets. Hailing from Ohio, Valdrin formed in 2010 with the intent to play a unique form of black/death metal using a lyrical concept called the "Ausadjur Mythos". This story combines many aspects of various ancient mythologies and occult practices, all synthesized into one grandiose tale, told through the eyes of the protagonist Valdrin Ausadjur. The debut album Beyond The Forest was released in June 2014, garnering critical acclaim in reviews through many different zines. Since the release of Beyond The Forest, Valdrin have been playing various live gigs throughout the American Midwest while completing the recording of their second album, Two Carrion Talismans.
Two Carrion Talismans sees Valdrin going from strength to strength. Undoubtedly death metal through and through, there is a pervasive sense of strangeness that seeps through every nook and every note of Two Carrion Talismans. Its compositions endlessly spiral and shapeshift upon themselves, all whilst maintaining a highly memorable quality; Valdrin are truly grounded in metal music, but choose death metal as the primary platform. And yet, with their seamlessly blended usage of synths adding a most haunting and even levitational quality, Two Carrion Talismans takes on a decidedly blackened aspect, imparting a sense of mysticism and even wonder to their muscular attack. It all blends together into a deliriously dark and daresay velvety experience, like drowning into an inky beyond much like the cover art's protagonist. Hear for yourself with "Sinews of Blood and Vein", the first track to be revealed from Two Carrion Talismans in the player below. Link
