Valfader to unleash thunderous debut album in October

 Valfader-thumb

South West riff slingers ‘Valfader’ release their debut EP ‘Whispers Of Chaos’ on Monday 21st October through all digital stores.

Valfader’s core sound is built around colossal riffs and heavy doom, merged with melodic passages that showcase the band’s array of countless influences. Never ones to conform to any generic, stereotyped, pre-set sound, every song that the band create fuses their love of stoner rock, doom, post metal and psychedelic. The band have a unique and bold output and count old guard luminaries Black Sabbath, as well as modern greats such as Opeth and Isis as inspiration. The trio have harnessed these influences, and through keen experimentation, they’ve sculptured their own pathway and clear manifesto.

Born in Bath, Valfader consist of the monolithic guitar work of Dean Gaylard, who’s heavy riffs and fretwork flurries help form the band’s signature sound; Dean’s vocals are a prominent feature of Valfader with his nimble ability to switch from heart-wrenching harmonies to guttural screams. Matt Jones handles the bass, and suitably compliments his peers’ performance with layered textures and moody fragments that assist in negotiating space for the apocalyptic percussion of Gareth Jones, whose unrelenting and punishing drumming has enough force to level a city block. Gareth also offers his gravel tongue to the mix, creating added depth and atmospherics.

Valfader now stride forward with the national release of their debut EP ‘Whispers of Chaos’, which fully displays the threesome’s spectrum of talent. It weighs in at nearly forty minutes, and with no track under eight minutes long, this record is a rewarding and grand expedition. From the off, the EP’s name sake ‘Whispers Of Chaos' impressively sets the tone with its concoction of moody guitar interplay and driving beats, framed by thoughtful dynamics and a delectable flood of alluring riffs. Next up is the stoner groove and sweeping power of ‘Green Sleeps’, which tips its cap to Ozzy and Co, successfully rattling your eardrums for eons. ‘DMT’ continues in rich form as it pulls you on an epic voyage with engrossing atmospherics and colossal riffage, before ‘Sacred Spiral’, with its amalgamation of haunting beauty, blistering guitar work and gruff vocal lines, brings the EP to a stunning climax, completing a journey that is utterly absorbing and compelling.
