In the wake of his father's death in 2009, Gregor Mackintosh of Paradise Lost fame sat down and began creating what would become Vallenfyre as a way to vent his frustrations. The result was an album's worth of material that would eventually become what, in my opinion, is one of the best albums of 2011 - A Fragile King.

I was able to get Gregor on the line for the December 3 edition of The Oath and we touched on everything from the creation of Vallenfyre to their future touring plans and more. Check the interview out below.
