The ideal was a passionate, limitless perversion that breathed ever so vibrant in the essence of its members. A will to leave all trails of society's false enslaving chains and entomb the shallow world they already considered dead. As the brotherhood took form, opposition and defiance surfaced from the neglected corners of the mind, shadowed by the laws and morals of a surroundings completely alien to the band's core.
No specific genre was ever truly chosen due to the fact that would itself bring boundaries in forms of blueprints and expectations. What is created under the flag of VALKYRJA is all that defies earthly shackles. With this in mind, the first steps into the night were taken. A wish to venture into the dark without ever looking back. A progression from mind to body, from spirit to flesh, from thought to act..
