British Metal band based in London, formed in 2008 and signed to Rising Records in 2010. Debut album "Psalms Of Solemn Virtue" released on 22nd November 2010 is progressive British Metal with occassional touches of Doom and overall melancholy feel. The band have stayed away from the mainstream metal using clean vocals and an old school 80s British Metal sound.
"Valpurgis Night ... sound more mature and stylish than perhaps would be expected by a band just two years old."
"By delving into the often-overlooked parts of metal history, London-based trio Valpurgis Night have somehow crafted an album which is an absolute breath of fresh air ... Real metal for real metalheads."
"When on a band's début you can sound out the influence of bands as varied as Black Sabbath, Nevermore, Iron Maiden and Candlemass, it's definitely worth a closer look."
"It's impressive how Valpurgis Night confidently and without a care for any underground trends do their thing and simply write songs that seem to come naturally to them."
"...'Psalms of Solemn Virtue' on Rising Records with a remarkable album that has a noticeably strong NWOBHM influence, but at the same time often reminds of the 'old' ICED EARTH..."
