For more on Valhalla Lights, check out the amazing documentary, “Shades of Black” – the Valhalla Lights Story(2015) – was a finalist at the Salt Lake International Film Festival, and tells the story surrounding the tragic death of Valhalla Lights’ first vocalist, Phoebe Black, and how the band posthumously recorded their debut album, “Krypton” (2015) after the vocalist’s death. The documentary sets the scene of how Ange Saul joins the band and starts working on the bands second album, “My Gracious Highway” (2018).
