David Fosberg plays guitar in Valhalla. But don’t worry: this is no jukebox hero saga of his rise to fame and fortune.
Valhalla’s a death metal band. From Florida.
And the rest of the guys just quit. There’s not a lot of money in metal hymns to the Elder Gods.
If David can record another album, Plutonic Records will send him on a two week tour to promote it.
Where people like metal.
Losing the Light by Brian Cartwright
Quique Martinez is a broken down photographer in search of the last great shoot. From the islands of Micronesia to the casbahs and desert of the Middle East, Quique will go anywhere to find it. What he doesn’t expect is the surreal adventure waiting to test him both mentally and physically. To him, the only possible outcomes are complete and total failure or the culmination of a life’s passion.
