Manorfest Review 

Great Review of our Manorfest performance from Ave Noctum.

Wayne Jackson was the driving force behind Manor Fest and did an awesome job, not only delivering a great festival but also in raising money for a really deserving cause. As well as running around making sure everything went smoothly, he somehow also found the time for a small matter of fronting Valafar, the next band on the bill, whose pummelling death metal brought a step up in intensity to Victoria Hall. This Bradford five piece have been making real waves in the metal underground with their impressive live performances, and based upon today’s performance this growing reputation is fully deserved with tracks such as ‘The Deviant’ laying waste to an ever growing crowd.

Valafar International Date 

We are pleased to announce that Valafar will be bringing Helheim to an international audience! We will be performing at Death Metal Supremacy VI on the 10th March 2018, Bucharest, Romania. Stay tuned for updates.
