VALKIRIA - Re-recorded Version Of Debut Album Available For Free Download

Italian gothic/doom/black metallers Valkiria have made available for free download their debut album Epika which was originally released in 2005. The album has been re-recorded, re-arranged, with new orchestral sound and a more aggressive and tribal drumming. It's also implemented with three new songs that replace the previous songs "Imharad", "Ilkendarth" and "Madaka". Bands mastermind Valkus commented: "The remake depends on the fact that I've been working hard on the new album for such a long time and I needed to have a break in order to return on it with “fresh ears” afterwards. It seems evident that I wouldn't just sit back doing nothing, so I thought that was the right moment to go back to the past and to the atmospheres of the old days as well. That was very inspiring, so instead of just recording again the old riffs, I have also composed 4 new songs. I’ve decided to insert three of them in Epika, the fourth one will be in the new cd. I have to say that now the album sounds completely new, even if this wasn’t my intention, but the concept behind is still there. There are a lot of differences, as every songs has been re-arranged with a new orchestral sound and a more aggressive and tribal drumming. I can say now that it's even closer to the sound I had in mind when I started composing it years ago. ! I’m actually very satisfied, so what I can say more, enjoy the free download!"
