Album Review

In a world where music has been growing increasingly beardy and serious, especially in the realm of metal, a band like Valient Thorr can be a breath of refreshing, albeit sweaty, air. On sixth album Our Own Masters, the Chapel Hill by way of Venus band continues to rock and rock hard, giving the feeling that these perennial road dogs pretty much only stop to refuel the van, give high fives, and occasionally record an album. If their life on the road is causing any wear and tear on them, Valient Thorr sure don't show it on the album, which has an invigorating quality about it that makes you want to immediately drop what you're doing, shotgun an energy drink, and air guitar along to the album's endless string of killer riffs until you pass out from exhaustion. What really works, though, is that Valient Thorr are able to deliver this kind of rockin' good time without feeling overly cheesy. Sure, some amount of cheese is not only expected, but welcome, yet the album never feels like a hard rock parody. At the end of the day, Our Own Masters is an album that's ridiculous without being ironic, and fun without being silly, making it an album that will not only appeal to the die-hard Thorriors out there, but also to anyone who appreciates heavy metal and hard rock and is not afraid to cut loose and have some fun every once in a while.

Incredible! My life is once again fulfilled. Thank You!!!!

VT reigns supreme

Thorrior from the beginning, this one won't let you down. Ceberus kills.

True Thorriors won't love it

I will say to Valient Himself when I see him good luck with this album, but it ain't what got you here. Most Thorriors will miss the thrash element to this album that has been on all their other releases. It sounds pretty weak compared to their previous releases, I think this band has been listening to too much Riverboat Gamblers.


Formed: 2001 in Chapel Hill, NC

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

According to frontman Valient Himself, hard-rocking metal outfit Valient Thorr were birthed on the planet Venus several millennia ago, hopscotching across the space-time continuum before finally arriving on Earth in 1957. Upon crashing in North Carolina, their time-travel machine was stolen by Walt Disney, and so the group (guitarists Eidan Thorr and Odinn Thorr, bassist Dr. Professor Nitewolf Strangees, and drummer Lucian Thorr) remains here to rock while seeking the means to return home.
