Valient Thorr – Our Own Masters

June 22nd, 2013

valient-thorr-our-own-master

‘Masters’ of the Looneyverse

Crawling from a hole deep in the earth of Chapel Hill, N.C., Valient Thorr again show they’re on this planet for a reason: to throw their uniquely ghoulish brew of punk and metal in your manly, grimacing face, only for its skin to drip off and reveal a smiling, headbanging skull. The band is a repeat offender at this sort of mendacious attack, and it’s high time to pencil in their sixth big entry on the rap sheet, Our Own Masters.

Valient Thorr W/ Gypsyhawk & Ramming Speed

June 3rd, 2013

June 29th

Red 7

Doors @ 9

$15 tickets

Valient Thorr puts on an amazingly fun show. The last time they graced Austin with their presence was during Fun Fun Fun Fest 2012, and it was awesome. Kids in bandanas and leather in a scattered pit, while frontman Valient ran around shirtless and climbed up rafters, and made claws in the pit. They really rock too, so it’s a win/win as far as a great metal show goes. Their new album comes out just a few weeks before the show date.

Check out Valient Thorr & their new album here.

Valient Thorr at the North Star Bar, Philadelphia, PA September 22, 2010

November 19th, 2010

Here in the terra firma of a dark bar, patrons loom anxious and curious like Area 51 gatecrashers armed with pints of special nectar. The anticipation of a sighting is overwhelming, and there are otherworldly glints of celestial beards afoot. We have been warned, probed and scanned for clearance and are about to witness a vision quest of extra terrestrial rock star bravado and virtuosity, a space brigade of five mysteriosos disguised in cut off denim jackets. What is this? Where did we get this information? A sweaty mess of space eggs holographically appear under the lights. They vibrate and break open and Valient Thorr hatch out to inhabit the stage, huffing spastically, riff ready and aiming to spread a plethora of prophecies and blessings by way of their galactic gospel spewing leader, Valient Himself.
