VALKYRE was formed at the end of 2004 and the beginning of 2005 by Kris Scheerlinck after leaving his former band SENGIR. The band consists of different well-trained musicians coming from different styles of music but with the same common interest : melodic atmospherical metal.
VALKYRE’s style can be described as a mixture from gothic-metal, classical music, folkmusic and melodic metal. Influenced by bands as Therion, In Extremo, Nightwish and Kamelot this band provides you with a nice blend of atmosphere and metal heaviness.
Only a few months after the first gigs the band decided in the autumn of 2005 to record a demo at the Excess studio in The Netherlands with Hans Pieters known from After Forever, Epica and Gorefest. This demo resulted in excellent sales worldwide and successful concerts through Benelux, France and Italy.
In September 2007 the band recorded its second demo “Consolamentum”, again at the Excess studio. The demo was first released at Metal Female Voices Fest in October 2007 and was immediately sold out.
In the autumn of 2010 ,after a break of more than 2 years Valkyre is back to rock .A new line-up has been forged and new material is being written. Valkyre Mark II starts now.
