Slechtvalk

Dark Viking Metal  from the Netherlands.


History:

SLECHTVALK has released three full-lengths, a split-cd with KEKAL
and a DVD. The band debuted with ‘Falconry’ (2000) and had their
breakthrough with ‘The War That Plagues the Lands’ (2002), which
reached #2 in the Lowlands Top-20 and stayed for weeks in the Top-
10. After the release, SLECHTVALK toured Europe for the very first
time.


The single ‘Thunder of War’ from their last album ‘At The Dawn of
War’ (2005) made it to MTV. Thanks to the media-exposure the band
again was able to tour Europe. Besides this tour, SLECHTVALK supported
bands like ELUVEITIE, MÅNEGARM, ENDSTILLE, SKYFORGER
and SUIDAKRA during mini-tours in the Netherlands, Belgium
and Germany.


In 2009, Whirlwind Records signed SLECHTVALK and released their
first „Best Of“ Record „An Era of Bloodshed“. The cover front artwork
was made by KRIS VERWIMP who has worked with the band in the
past, as well. The record will be released to celebrate the 10th anniversary
of the Dutch Dark-/Viking-Metal band. On top of that, Whirlwind
Records will release a brand new SLECHTVALK album in April
2010.
