LONG BRANCH RECORDS proudly announces VALIS ABLAZE as the newest addition to its family. The UK atmospheric-prog-metallers will release their debut full-length in early 2018. The first single output ‘Paradox’ will be released on 16 February on all digital platforms.
Hailing from Bristol, UK, VALIS ABLAZE released their first EP Insularity in 2017. The EP was an huge success and helped them quickly rise through the ranks, earning them support slots with many of their influences throughout the year.
Providing an alternative to the standard heavy progressive sound, VALIS ABLAZE’s music is full of unique dips and swells created through subtle complexities in their instrumental and structural arrangements.
With their debut full-length coming up in 2018 VALIS ABLAZE will bring an even more refined sound – low end grooves juxtaposed with soaring vocal lines, crisp cleans and atmospheric synths up against dirty, growling bass.
