Vallenfyre's debut album, 'A Fragile King' will be released through Century Media Records worldwide next week.

Vallenfyre is the brainchild of Gregor Mackintosh (songwriter and guitarist of Paradise Lost), along with members of My Dying Bride, At The Gates, and Doom. Vallenfyre is not a one-off project-- they will continue as a band that will also play live in 2012.

'A Fragile King' will be available as CD, limited Digipak (incl. bonus track) and 180gr vinyl LP (incl. the bonus track and a poster). The vinyl is limited to:

- 200 copies on clear vinyl
- 100 copies on gold/black marbled vinyl
- the black vinyl is not limited

Gregor Mackintosh spoke extensively about the creation of 'A Fragile King' and you can read what he had to say by clicking here.



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
