We don’t hear much about Portuguese metal as a rule, but although Wells Valley may not have the most metal name, their mix of doomed down sludgy post-metal – check the video for ‘Star Over A Wheel’ below for an instant Gojira style fix – is extremely intriguing. And is certainly metal!
Featuring guitarist/vocalist Filipe Correia (Concealment), bassist Pedro Lopes and drummer Pedro Mau (Kneel), the group formed in late 2011 and have recently completed the recording of their debut album “Matter as Regent”. Listen in full below and let us know what you think.
We really quite like them. They offer the oppression of Neurosis with the groove and guitarwork of Gojira, tempered with the twinkly highs of Cult Of Luna. Niiice.
