Valis Ablaze set out to provide an intriguing alternative to the progressive metal norm; 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. And with the band being spread out all across the UK, playing together is not only cathartic but coalescent too.
Their sophomore album, 'Render', produced by James Wisner (Paramore, Hands Like Houses, Underoath) is set for worldwide release on 19th of July, 2019 through Long Branch Records. And is available to pre-order here: ValisAblaze.lnk.to/Render
London's purveyors of #sassrock, Derange are a wall slab of techy pop-metal, accompained by imagery inspired by cinema and video games. They’re a sonic blend of angst and diversity and described as a ‘perfect blend of metal madness and subtle beauty’
Since joining Elicit Music in 2018, Derange has released singles “Runaway” and “Divide” which we’re welcome with great reviews, and toured alongside Exist Immortal and On Hollow Ground. With many more UK shows planned and new music awaiting release, Derange is using their time wisely to get their audience excited with their new sound and image.
