Florida metal quartet AVE (A Valiant Effort) have dropped their new video/single “Valhalla,” a melodic firestorm with lyrics paying homage to the way of the warrior and the glory that awaits on the other side of life. The group’s latest track echoes a metalcore influence ranging from the early 2000s to today. Take the polished vocal stylings of Thirty Seconds to Mars and smash them together with the vicious instrumentation of I Prevail, and as the dust settles you’ll find AVE.
“The single was inspired by the Viking/Dane idea of a glorious heaven waiting for a warrior who died on the battlefield” the band shares of the track. “We were interested in the idea of the great Valhalla and made a song about the journey to get there.”
