the new album by Vale of Amonition is finally, finally, finally arrived
Lock up the unbelief far away from incredulity of the cynicism of pessimism, for the moment of Vale of Amonition's return with a new album is now the reality that all the ghosts will have to face. It has taken a long time and Vale of Amonition was reluctant to reveal the wings of implementation. It will be ready when it's ready, that was the story. No more! The doom has taken shape and the whole album, the entire new work is there now on Bandcamp to be experienced from start to end. It's going to get strange, it's going to be a trip, and that's the way of the Vale of Amonition, somewhere beyond nowhere and near the distance closest betwixt and between.
Those of Tartarean Ancestry is the name of the new album, and this is the way the doom flies into the Vale of Amonition in order to arrive to you where you are, those of the metal afar where the corner is the whole plane necessary.
The Vale of Amonition will show you when we meet.
OFFICIAL: The VALE OF AMONITION or "Valley of Ammunition" is a home to things of a tragic persuasion. A sanctuary for warmakers, a province for mages, an abode for ancient tribal lords and their possibly doomed descendants and a whole world of creatures divine and devious.
Surrounding the Vale is the Abyss which is now inhabited by the most ancient of beasts. Light does not flow into the Abyss and its creatures never venture into the Vale. But a storm is brewing and events shall soon unfold in a harrowing and dramatic fashion.
We are the band that speaks of the Vale of Amonition to Earth. We tell of its glorious history, its troubles and triumphs and of the heavy hand of doom that refuses to abandon it.
Musically, Black Sabbath and Mercyful Fate are our most important influences but rather than remain rigid, our aim from the beginning has always been to evolve as much as we can within the heavy metal context.
Therefore, "progressive" is a term of significance for us and tells of our collective spirit as musicians. Our willingness to grow, our love for dynamism and intricacy and our purpose to create and to imagine INFINITELY!
Doom is our ultimate governor and the principle by which we play.
