Gregor Mackintosh On Vallenfyre: “We’re 90 Percent Sure Now That We’ll Never Record Anything Else”

It looks like Vallenfyre’s latest album “Fear Those Who Fear Him” may be their last. Gregor Mackintosh told Metal Covenant the following when asked if he puts his heart into Vallenfyre and his common sense into Paradise Lost:

“Um, Vallenfyre is like my Saturday night out. Yeah, I have fun with it. I can’t deny that, but I can’t say that I take it too seriously. Again, like with Paradise Lost, the music is quite serious, but it’s like, you know, having a few drinks and going down to the pub with your mates type of thing. But I wouldn’t say the heart, no. Because I don’t intend… You know… We’re 90 percent sure now that we’ll never record anything else with Vallenfyre. So we’ll leave it as a trilogy. So if that’s where the heart was, I left it behind me.”

He also added:

“It was just I was talking to Hamish [Hamilton Glencross, bass and guitar] about it the other day and we just seemed to think that as a trilogy record it makes sense.”

Vallenfyre Premiere “The Merciless Tide” Music Video

Vallenfyre have premiered a new video for their track “The Merciless Tide.” This song is from their new album “Fear Those Who Fear Him,” which is available now.

Gregor Mackintosh said the following:

“‘The Merciless Tide‘ is about the relentless march of time and also wishing you could be in someone else’s shoes to save them suffering. In the video we see a man going through immense suffering over a long period of time, never being able to grasp the things he craves, whilst faceless tormentors observe in indifference. This is incredibly grim, so enjoy.”

Vallenfyre Premiere New Song “Nihilist”

Vallenfyre have premiered a new track titled “Nihilist.” This song is from their new album “Fear Those Who Fear Him,” which will be released on June 2.

Gregor Mackintosh said the following:

“‘Nihilist‘ is about those who take their ridiculous holy book seriously and carry it out to the letter. In light of recent events it is dedicated to the innocent victims of the Manchester attack.”

Vallenfyre Premiere “An Apathetic Grave” Lyric Video

Vallenfyre have premiered a lyric video for their new track “An Apathetic Grave.” This song is from their new album “Fear Those Who Fear Him,” which will be released on June 2.

Gregor Mackintosh said the following:

“As a second taster of our new album Fear Those Who Fear Him, we would like to present you with the song ‘An Apathetic Grave.’ By total contrast to the previously released track ‘Kill All Your Masters,’ this one is an extremely miserable, crushing doom song about a man reaching the end of his life and reflecting on the futility of it all.”

Gregor Mackintosh said the following:

“‘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.”
