Here in excerpt:

“…..These guys, for such young talent really explode and blow my mind. The opening track “It’s Not Love – It’s Not War” rips right off the bat. Great lyrics and moving guitar work by BT Valerie plus his vocals can reach the masses. VALERIE is a full-package band that brings sleaze and melodic rock to its knees. Track two, “Heat Of The Night”, is another killer track that has a gripping chorus and I love the change of direction in music, how the hell do these guys master songs when even veteran musicians lack that spark that VALERIE possesses….”


“…Valerie is a young and ambitious hard rock/glam metal band from Arendal; a small town in southern Norway. Valerie is known for their big choruses and guitar riffs, along with blistering guitar solos. Their music is often referred to as a cross between great 80s acts like Mötley Crüe, Dokken, Ratt and a more modern rock sound. It’s melodic, catchy, in your face hard rock. Valerie is 1987 in 2012
