I present to you the final character in "The Legend of Valley Doom Part 1". Edu Falaschi has been a very big inspiration to me as a vocalist. I first heard his voice in Angra when they covered "The Number of the Beast". I was blown away by this band. Soon I found the album "Rebirth", which still remains one of my favorites. The song "Nova Era" is my favorite Angra song ever. His current band is Almah, and it kicks so much ass. Check it out! To have Edu sing one of my songs will be amazing!

I discovered Simon's amazing voice in 2005 when his band Crystal Empire released their EP "Lord of Illusions". I was blown away by this EP, and it still remains one of my favorite releases ever. To have both the bassist Giorgio Novarino and Simon Byron from Crystal Empire on my upcoming album is very cool. Almost like a Crystal Empire reunion! ;)
In 2009 he was a guest vocalist for a demo EP for this project, where he sang the song "Lost In A Dream of No Return"! His current band is a heavy rock band called Sunset where he has been working with artists such as Graham Bonnet (Rainbow, MSG) and Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson).

17.06.2013
After 8 years I have decided to finish the work on The Legend of Valley Doom. It's been a project I've always wanted to record professionally, and now the time has come. I am currently working on re-recording demos, which includes re-arranging the songs and re-writing some of the lyrics. I want to write the lyrics so it can fit different characters. Which means that this album will include guest vocalists and other guest musicians. Right now I have the Warrior King, The King of Valley Doom, The Wizard and The Dark Lord, but I believe there will be more characters when this thing is finished. I've been in contact with some great people already. I have teamed up with my brother, Peter Danielsen (Eunomia, Darkest Sins on synth, the great swedish guitarist Esa Ahonen (Cryonic Temple), my one and only Anniken Rasmussen on bass (Darkest Sins) and the awesome Ludvig Pedersen (Darkest Sins) on drums. I also got two great sketches for the album artwork by Rob Joseph. They were so great I couldn't decide which one to use. Therefore I want to use them both. In other words, there will be TWO albums! The Legend of Valley Doom Part 1 & 2. You can see a little teaser of the artwork in this banner.


More news on guest musicians and other stuff later.

 

Sincerly, 

Marius Danielsen
