Old King's Visions
4 May 2017
VHÄLDEMAR is a Spanish metal band formed in the late '90s in Vizcaya, Spain, when guitarrist Pedro J. Monge decided to create a group with the singer and guitarrist Carlos Escudero. In 2001, they released their first demo, and it brought them a record deal with Arise Records, with whom they launched their debut album, Fight to the End, in March 2002 and was released throughout Europe, Japan, Russia, North America, and South America.
In late 2003, VHÄLDEMAR releases its second album, I Made my Own Hell, again on Arise Records. In 2007, they headlined in the Bilbao BBK Live Festival, and the band released its third album, Metal of the World. In August 2012, the band played at Leyendas del Rock Festival and also at Ripollet Rock Festival. In May 2013, the band releases their fourth album, Shadows of Combat.
In 2017, VHÄLDEMAR inks a deal with FIGHTER RECORDS for a multi-album deal which includes the reissue of their two first albums, Fight to the End (2002) and I Made my Own Hell (2003), to be released on April 21st as a double-CD with five bonus tracks and remastered sound.
A five-song digipack EP entitled Old King’s Visions will be released on May 4th through FIGHTER RECORDS, and their brand-new fifth opus, Against All Kings, is expected for October 2017, also through FIGHTER RECORDS.
VHÄLDEMAR is also scheduled to play at Leyendas del Rock Festival this August alongside such bands as Megadeth, Amon Amarth, and Arch Enemy among others.
