about

Cincinnati “Volume Rock” power trio VALLEY OF THE SUN just recorded their debutalbum ”Electric Talons of the thunder hawk”. The was recorded at Nada Studios in New York, the album is the follow up to the band’s 2011 EP The Saying of the Seers, which led hard rock mecca The Obelisk to state, “there’s no question that Valley of the Sun are placing themselves at the forefront of the new generation of American heavy rock.”

Featuring 10 electric tracks of confident, concentrated heavy music that hits hard with downtuned riffing, stadium-sized hooks, powerful artistic muscle and the take charge roar of guitarist / front man Ryan Ferrier, Electric Talons of the Thunderhawk positions VALLEY OF THE SUN as a buzz band to watch. Relentless road dogs that have shared stages worldwide with friends and peers such as Truckfighters, Priestess, The Sword, Karma to Burn and more, VALLEY OF THE SUN has distilled the vigor and vibrancy of its triumphant live performances to tape, perfectly capturing their epic tone, rhythm, talent and attention to dynamics on the new record.

“The new record shows how we’ve grown as a band over the last couple years,” said VALLEY OF THE SUN drummer Aaron Boyer. “It’s been a lot of fun writing, recording and playing live in support of it. We’re really excited for our fans to be able to pick it up soon and let us know what they think.”

Track Name: Worn Teeth
WORN TEETH

All things are eternally fleeting,
worn teeth of the hunter long dreaming.
I see long shadows of a-nothing.
Faint scene of the ether becoming.
Upon the embers of Uhuru all is flame.

Blue skies on the eyes of the witness.
Breathe deep and receive what is given.
All things born free unto the heavens
pay heed to the call of the Elders.
Once lost we'll surely find the truth, my friends.
Track Name: As earth and moon
AS EARTH AND MOON

Ooh, I've prayed to gods and snakes.
Ooh, I've waited twelve thousand days
for this moment when we are
drawn together from afar.

We are bonded and tied as Earth and Moon.
We are bonded and tied as Earth and Moon.
I would not be what I am without you.
We are bonded and tied as Earth and Moon.
Track Name: Maya
MAYA

Hey, I'm running away, oh, from all this sorrow.
Hey, I'm all that remains, oh, all still to follow.
Hey, I'm running away, oh, from all this sorrow.
Hey, that answer we chase, oh, burns in the hollow.

Hey, I feel it, all of Maya.
Hey, I will it, this desire.

Hey, I'm running away, oh, from all this sorrow.
Hey, that answer we chase, oh, burns in the hollow.

Hey, I feel it, all of Maya.
Hey, I will it into life, this desire.
Track Name: Nomads
NOMADS

We're traveling farther than we've ever seen.
We're riding comets into the stars.
Farewell, dear mother,
I may not ever feel your warmth again,
but my truth is there.

We're blessing ashes for the Emerald Queen.
We're driving planets into the Sun.
Inhale this water
and let it guide you to the furthest end
of mind, truth, and space.

Oh, we are the water
flowing toward the sea to become the rain.

We're traveling farther than we've ever seen.
We're driving planets into the Sun, oh yeah.

Oh we are the water
flowing toward the sea to become the rain.

When i flow in we're reunited, i know.
One breath and we are enlightened, i know.
You're holding yourself to the fire, let go.
All born in the death of desire, i know.
Track Name: Within the glare
WITHIN THE GLARE

I need the ocean, I need the breeze,
to get my head right.
Regretting so much that I can't feel
the sweetness in life.

Oh, the world.
Oh, this haze.
Blinding everyone
who'd be remade.

I seek a moment within the trees
to deepen this sight.
Rejecting nothing in everything
will lead me to light.

Oh, i know.
Oh, i swear.
I'm gonna find the Sun
within the glare.

Don't you worry 'bout a thing, pretty mama
I'm coming round to you.
Time makes weary hearts in men who don't wander.
I'm roaming back to you.
Track Name: The message is get down
THE MESSAGE IS GET DOWN

Dear brother, world-lover, go out and see.
Sweet sister, life-giver, get down with me.

Get down with me, Get down with me...

Lost minutes, a soft shimmer upon the sea
mean little until the last dawn of being.

When all has borne bad fruit
sow and nurture anew.
Free, all we are is Free,
as it should be.

Get down with me, Get down with me...
Track Name: The sleeping sand
THE SLEEPING SAND

With skies of trouble and Earth concealed
the Witness struggles, his name revealed.

In the fog men will sit and wonder
what they would see,
as the sound of the distant thunder
dissuades the meek.

In the sound we have found the Mother.
In space we dream.
With the Earth and the skies above her
we blend and breathe.

Golden Angel, lead me on home,
you hold the answers, I know.
Oh, sweet darlin, your eyes are tomes
of endless magic untold.

In the night we will guide each other
through pass and deep.
With the light of the mind upon us,
in sand we'll sleep.
Track Name: Gunslinger
GUNSLINGER

Reaching for the high to last for all my days.
Gleaming, golden skies to light me on my way.

To the Garden I'll go,
and there become the King.
Oh, and the burdens of old,
moments in a forgotten dream.

Clean and true, the death and life of everything.
Bleeding through the dirt to rise and live again.

To the Garden I'll go,
and there become the King.
Oh, and the burdens of old,
moments in a forgotten dream.
Track Name: Centuar rodeo
CENTAUR RODEO

I've got the will to conquer all.
Beneath the chaos lies the calm.
I've seen the Seven Mountains.
I've watched them crumble one by one.

Escape is just a metaphor.
We've chosen how we'll be reborn.
Our misdeeds burn in fire.
Our charity will be reclaimed
by gods older and wiser
than that which we could ever name.

I've got the will to conquer all.
Beneath the chaos lies the calm.
I've seen the Seven Mountains.
I've watched them crumble one by one.
Our fate has been recounted.
Our tragedy lies with the Sun.
