«Formed in late 2013, Valafar is a death metal band from Bradford, West Yorkshire. Taking influence from artists such as Amon Amarth, Obituary and Entombed, Valafar released their first Demo EP 'Ritual of the Diabolical' in February 2013. Following this, 'Helheim', the first full length offering from Valafar was independently released in August 2015 and met with critical acclaim. Valafar have toured the UK extensively to promote their music and they are currently writing and rehearsing their second full length album to be released mid 2018.»

Necronautical —

«In 2011, Necronautical was formed by the trio of Naut, Carcarrion and Anchorite. The band honed their signature 'grim euphoric' black metal sound through the production of two self released demos; „Slaying the Leviathan“ in 2011 and „Forged in the Glacial Depths“ in 2012. These released were supported with a handful of shows across the UK with original drummer Cyb.

In 2014, Necronautical self released their debut album „Black Sea Misanthropy“. The album received an overwhelmingly positive response from critics and fans alike, and established Necronautical as one of the most promising and unique bands among the flourishing UK black metal scene. As well as enjoying praise from the likes of Terrorizer Magazine and, the album also caught the attention of the newly resurrected Cacophonous Records, who signed Necronautical for the release of their second album.

The band recruited Slugh on drums in 2015 and set about recording their second album. Necronautical released „The Endurance at Night“ in the summer of 2016 via Cacophonous Records, and with a music video for the song „Nihilartikel'. The album recieved high acclaim from critics and saw the band featured in magazines such as Metal Hammer (UK) and Power Play (DE) among others. Necronautical made there return to the stage opening for Black Metal legends Dark Funeral at the Underworld in London, before continuing their live campaign across the UK supporting the likes of Melechesh and Hecate Enthroned. Becoming known for their powerful and immersive stage presence, Necronautical went on to perform at Eradication Festival, Warhorns Festival and Mammothfest in 2017, as well as a 14 date tour supporting Winterfylleth, Wiegedood and Fen across Europe and the UK in 2017. Necronautical are set to record their third album in 2018“
