Interview: Valient Himself of Valient ThorrPosted: November 15, 2010
I remember when I first listened to Valient Thorr. I was in high school, and some online playlist I was listening to at the time had “Man Behind The Curtain” on it. If memory serves, I was thrashing around like a blind animal to what was one of the hardest rockinest songs I had listened to in a long time. I’m getting pumped just thinking about it. With every coming second, the band exudes an even stronger flair of intensity and, well, ‘kick-assness’. I had the pleasure of speaking with the Venusian band’s frontman, Valient Himself, at Fun Fun Fun Fest last weekend and had one of the best conversations of my life with the guy.
Just coming off of a support tour for their new album, Stranger, the band paid a visit to the Austin, Texas music festival for their last show on the tour. I was originally going to type out this interview but I decided that I really wanted you all to hear this so I’ve uploaded the audio of our conversation. I might make this a usual thing, I might not. We shall see in the coming posts. Listen below and enjoy.
