Impressions Week 20 - 2017

WELLS VALLEY - THE ORPHIC (EP)

Wells Valley - The Orphic Good

Bleak Recordings, 26.04.17
From Portugal's capital Lisbon, comes the band Wells Valley. The trio debuted with the album Matter As Regent a couple of years ago, but nobody has yet taken the trouble of adding them into the protocols of Encyclopaedia Metallum.
The website may have a strict criteria, but I see no reason why the Portuguese should not qualify for a place among other practitioners of avant-garde post-black dissonant sludge or what the hell to call it. Even if not all of their sources of inspiration sorts under metal.

VHÄLDEMAR - OLD KING'S VISIONS (EP)

Vhäldemar - Old King's Visions Middling

Fighter Records, 04.05.17
Vhäldemar is a power metal quintet from Spain that's been going since 1999. The band got four albums behind them and offers a touch of heavy metal.
Earlier this month, they released the EP Old King's Visions, where four songs and an interlude are allowed to romp for 17 minutes.
In April, Fighter Records released a compilation of remastered versions of the two first albums, Fight to the End (2002) and I Made My Own Hell (2003), including five bonus tracks, and in October, the same label will be releasing the band's fifth album, Against All Kings.
