Unrestricted by genre conventions and determined to raise the bar with each successive release, VËLLA delivers music and a message with a firm commitment to passion and authenticity. The band blazes a path combining seemingly disparate elements into a singular, cohesive identity. Tirelessly seeking out the light in seemingly overwhelming darkness, the Portuguese modern metal quintet balances soaring melodies with unrelenting metal and emotional heaviness. The band’s newest release, Entity Vol. I, released under the Art Gates Records moniker, arrive with confidence and forward motion born from reflection, introspection, and isolation. The five-piece group built the foundations for the latest songs during the pandemic shutdown, shaping diverse tracks like “of Excess,” “of Fate,” and “of Rebirth” into stunning confessional epics. VËLLA’s audience treasures each of the band’s songs for the emotional depth, passionate catharsis, and evocative power contained in them, translating into a growing wave of followers.
