The Nameless One

Rated 2.25/5 (45%) (4 Votes)

This is the debut EP from Greek band Valor, who are supposedly coming up with a full-length some time here real soon. Valor's major claim to fame is featuring two former members of Greek True Metal colossus Battleroar in their lineup.

Given that, and that this is a Greek band, it should be no big shock that Valor are in the mainline of current Hellenic True Metal like Lonewolf, Battleram, Wotan, etc. This is a pretty good showing of what this band are about and what they can do, but it is mainly going to appeal to fans of the style. The production is the kind that sounds like it was recorded in a basement, the songs are solid but not really that strong, and the performances and vocals are competent but nothing to get really excited about. I can see that Valor could really make a killer album with some recording budget and some time to cook up some really first-rate songs, but this EP is really just a minor effort. This is a nice enough find for fans of Grecian True Metal, but hardly a genre-defining masterpiece.
