Bristolian progressive metal act Valis Ablaze will release the long-awaited debut full length LP "Boundless" on April 6th via Long Branch Records. The band issued a video clip for the new single "Paradox," which is available in the player above.
Having quickly risen through the ranks, Valis Ablaze released their first EP "Insularity" in 2017, which saw the band added to many bills in the prog-metal world, including supports with Tesseract, Sikth and a set at U.K. Tech Fest. Not only did the band pick up a legion of fans along the way, progressive minded label Long Branch saw the huge potential and snapped the U.K. act up for the debut album.
Although wearing influences clearly on it's sleeves, Valis Ablaze provides an intriguing alternative to the progressive metal norm; swells of creative ingenuity shine throughout, as well as thought out details and subtle complexities that will keep the listener returning again and again.
With the debut full-length, Valis Ablaze presents an even more refined sound: low end grooves juxtaposed with soaring vocal lines, crisp milton-cleans and atmospheric synths, all driven by intricate rhythm work and growling bass. A huge spectrum of energy, emotion, power and beauty.
Valis Ablaze will be touring Europe far and wide in support of Boundless, stay tuned for more news. The artwork for "Boundless" can be viewed here:
