Portuguese alternative metal outfit VËLLA has just released their long-awaited debut album “COMA“, edited by Raising Legends Records.
“COMA” was recorded in Raising Legends Lisboa studios with the band’s bass player, Caesar Craveiro, taking over the production, mixing and mastering tasks.
The record features some special guests, such as the singer from the Portuguese groove metal band Equaleft, Miguel Inglês, who lends his voice to the song “The Promise”. Ana Marques gives her voice to the song “Tormento”, which also has the contribution of Ariana Pereira’s violin, and “I’ll Be The End”, the last song of the record, has the vocal collaboration of André Ferreira aka Wild Maui.
VËLLA’s guitar player Mário Rui says that “this record illustrates the union of 5 musicians without fear of risking. We rely on the vision of each member to create the best music possible, not defining genres or barriers. In the end, the result was 12 distinct themes, between heavy riffs, memorable choruses, melancholy environments, and addictive melodies. We wrote a record that certainly won’t leave audiences indifferent.”
Oz Vilesov, the other guitar player, adds: “While we wrote the record we never had in mind a pre-defined genre. We preferred it to be the songs guiding us and this resulted in a record with multiple facets.”
