Guest appearances for the album include Scott Holderby (Mordred), Neil Fraser (Rage Of Angels) and Steve Moore (Stormzone).

The band commented: “Conjuring fate have been gigging for quite a few years now. We have built up a steady fan base and reputation amoung our homeland here in Ireland and the UK. As an independent act we have played some amazing shows with acts such as Diamond Head, Dragonforce, Mordred, & Blaze Bayley amoung others. And although we are grateful and have sold merchandise all over the world, we felt that we needed that bit of extra backing and help. So we have to say that we are exceptionally happy to be working with German label, Pure Steel Records! They are a label who really care about all things heavy metal. We hope that with their help we can push our new album ‘Valley Of Shadows’ even further than we have previously! We will be playing some shows through Ireland and the UK. We will then hit up parts of Europe. We Hope you are ready for THE FATE!”

The album’s track listing is:

1. Our Darkest Days
