Valkyrie Cover Art

Lion Splicer is a Stoner Metal/Punk Rock/Speed Metal name it the fuck whatever Duo from New York City

The members are:

Max Splice - Guitars, Bass, Voice
Danny Splice - Drums, Swagger 

Lion Splicer plays a fast-paced blend of Stoner Metal mixing many other elements of Hard-Rock and Metal. Taking influence from a whole range of bands but adding their own unique take of the world of Stoner Metal.

Lion Splicer has been featured on this blog before with their excellent debut release “Splicer”. I rated this album highly as it was a great release showcasing this band’s great talents.

Well the guys are back better than ever with their brilliant new EP – Valkyrie. A 3 song 15 minute blast of hard-hitting Stoner Metal riffs blending other genres of Hard-Rock and Metal. Which the guys are kindly giving away free again.

This EP leaves its predecessor in the dust. Everything is better about this release. The riffs are heavier, vocals are more focused than ever before. And the production is just phenomenal.

But the biggest surprise is the band themselves. They have moved into another level from their previous release. Lion Splicer has become better musicians and they have improved as musicians about 1000%. I mean that in the best possible way.

Their musical creativity on this release is just astounding in how they have blended the many different genres to sound better than ever.

This release just blew me away. I was expecting something good but nothing could prepare me for what was to come. The 3 tracks on show will have you begging for more. It’s a shame it’s on so short as this could have done with a couple of more tracks.

But they always say a sign of a good band is leaving the listener wanting more. And I want to hear more of this amazing bands music.

My fave part of the EP was the Twin Guitar Homage to Thin Lizzy in sublime track “Train Kept A Rollin”. Awesome Stuff.

Well you can tell I love this release. With the band giving this away for free download you have no excuse to miss out. A brilliant release from a brilliant band.

I think these guys should now start working on their proper full length record as they have the talent and vision to go far in this crazy world of Stoner Metal. We need bands like Lion Splicer to mix it up a bit. Brilliant!!!
