Valient ThorrRoyal ThunderThe KickassWitchburnValient ThorrValient Thorr is not a group of aliens to rest on their laurels, so 2007 was equally intense. Starting off on a lengthy trek with fellow heavy rockers Fu Manchu, Valient Thorr also spread their intergalactic message to Europe for the first time, and co-headlined the inaugural Volcom Tour with labelmates the Riverboat Gamblers. The year was capped by a triumphant victory, as Valient Thorr was selected by metal heroes Motrhead to accompany them on a three-week tour of Germany.Taking some much-needed time off of Earths crazy system of roads, Valient Thorr recorded Immortalizer in Seattle with legendary Earthling Jack Endino, producer of seminal albums by Nirvana, Soundgarden and Mudhoney as well as younger upstarts Hot Hot Heat and High On Fire. Recording with Endino in his hometown of Seattle, Valient Thorr continued to work from the starting point of their classic 70s influences such as Black Sabbath and Thin Lizzy as well as those groups more obscure yet equally important contemporaries like Masters Apprentices and Sir Lord Baltimoreall of whom kept the guitars heavy while adding some funky bounce to the rhythms. Its no coincidence that Valient Thorr shares more in common with that past era of greatness than todays formulaic, watered-down sounds. As Valient Himself puts it, When rock lost its roll, it lost its soul. Were putting the roll back in rock n roll!While older albums tackled the worlds problems straight on with a blunt, in-your-face attack on the Bush Administration, war in the Middle East and capitalism run amok, the band is now taking a more allegorical approach. In addition to double-barreled assaults on the pompous A-holes in D.C., Immortalizer uses veiled references to comment on the everyday obstacles that life throws at everyone, whether its dealing with the death of a family member, your old lady running out on you, or trying to keep your head up while being a homeless traveler.
