More than 100.000 views

The Hildr Valkyrie's myspace page has over passed the 100,000 views for a second time (since the first page was deleted). I have no words to say, just a huge thank you to all of you, for your great support through out these years!

Myspace nowadays seems to be "out of fashion" with less activity since facebook came on the scene; but some people we believe that remaining underground earns the respect of more people than those that comes and go! After all, facebook offers as much as the myspace page so there is no actual reason to create one there another page of the same!

Anyhow, back to the main subject of this announcement, for the reason of the 100,000 views I refresed the layout of the page so to give you another motivate to enjoy your staying over there! Hopefully soon to have more new stuff to share with all of you!

Be well, stay metal, enjoy life, be createful... just be yourselves! With my very best Regards Hildr Valkyrie
