Furious yet poised, feral yet professional, VALKYRJA from Sweden make their long-awaited return with The Antagonist's Fire. VALKYRJA's third album to date, The Antagonist's Fire follows their critically acclaimed second album, Contamination, released in 2010 by Metal Blade. Here, the quartet goes from strength to strength, employing a variety of tempos and textures - including a pronounced usage of classic heavy metal lead work - whilst staying deadly committed to timeless black metal orthodoxy. Each track explodes into burning black fire and reaches near-anthem status before song's end, twisting the listener into a state of feverish possession. Feel The Antagonist's Fire!
