Walpyrgus - Walpyrgus Nights (CD)


$ 14.99


Inspired classic and extremely catchy hard rock/heavy metal!

In 2012 a conglomerate of veteran Heavy Metal musicians joined together in North
Carolina under the moniker of Walpyrgus. Coming from long running, respected bands including Twisted Tower Dire, While Heaven Wept, Daylight Dies and October 31 (among many others too numerous to list), founding members Scott Waldrop (guitar/chief songwriter), Jonny Aune (vocals), Jim Hunter (bass), Charley Shackelford (guitar) and Peter Lemieux (drums) drew upon influences ranging from Iron Maiden, The Scorpions, Black Sabbath to early Slayer and even The Ramones - resulting in a harmonically rich, melodic, energetic take on classic Hard Rock/Heavy Metal. Their eponymous debut EP was released on cassette via Swords and Chains Records (USA) in June 2014 and a deluxe 7' vinyl/CD version followed on No Remorse Records (Greece) in that November. In 2015 the band played 'The Ragnarökkr Metal Apocalypse' festival and began the tracking of their first full-length record. Shortly after recording his tracks Peter left the band for a fresh start on the West Coast and another NC veteran Carlos Denogean soon filled the vacated drum position. Simultaneously, While Heaven Wept mainman Tom Phillips was invited to contribute keyboards to the album and ended up helming the production of the entire project. The following two years were spent crafting the record under his direction and performing regionally - and highlighted by an appearance on the Metal Blade Records compilation 'Metal Massacre 14'.
'Walpyrgus Nights', the full-length debut is scheduled for a late Spring 2017 release via Italy's Cruz Del Sur Music and will be accompanied by live appearances at 'The Legions of Metal' and 'Frost and Fire III' festivals.
