  The band name has a long story behind it, but here’s the short version: Valient Thorr is a creature from the planet Venus that lands on earth to make it a better place but is captured by American security agencies. It’s actually quite a creative conspiracy theory, but let’s focus on the band for a minute. Valient Thorr formed in 2001 and released their debut album ‘Stranded on Earth’ under their own steam. They took North America by storm and the band were signed by Volcom Entertainment. Over the next four years, Valient Thorr unleashed two more albums upon their “Thorriors”, as they like to call their loyal fans. Be sure to check them out in the Metaldome. They’re well worth it, if not for their uncomprimising rocking riffs, then certainly for their creative band name and the (hi)story behind it.
