Oakland Thrashers VALE unleash debut album – Listen now

Artist photo by: Sam Capparos

The wait is now over: Oakland thrashers Vale have unleashed their debut LP for public consumption (ahead of its May 24 release date). Burden Of Sight, Vale’s crushing foray into the world, is now streaming via Decibel Magazine.   Providing a devastating soundtrack to a grim, post-apocalyptic future, Vale spend six tracks on the brink of sonic destruction.

Listen to Burden Of Sight in its scorching entirety via Decibel Magazine today.

Burden Of Sight can be viewed as a dirge against the pervasive exploitation and avarice that has taken root in the band’s own backyard. From rampant homelessness to classist hedonism, it’s all too easy to imagine the harsh reality of decomposing landscapes fraught with cannibalism and religious zealotry that Vale depicts across their rightfully nihilistic debut. 
Vale formed in late 2015 and boasts a roster featuring members of Ulthar, Void Omnia and Abstracter. After recording a demo and hitting the pavement on tour throughout 2017 and beyond, the outfit sporadically composed the material that would become Burden Of Sight.
Burden Of Sight will be released via The Flenser this Friday, May 24. Preorders are available here. 
Catch Vale on the road this summer — more updates to come.
