Valous Live at Twitrfest 3

When you’re putting together something like Twitrfest, there’s always the chance that someone is going to pull out before the event (occasionally LITERALLY just before the event) but when Ajenda pulled out a couple of weeks before and we were thinking about who to invite to replace them there was only one name at all of the CackBlabbath team could agree on…

Valous were one of the highlights of last year’s TF, so we were delighted when they agreed at short notice to bring their pure Brummie Heavy Metal back to Wakefield for another installment. Over the past 12 months the band’s star has been in the ascendent and the hard work is really starting to pay off..

Just as well as they’d have to be on top of their game to match the performance of The Idol Dead…

Valous were about to release their debut album The Things You Once Knew, and tonight the appreciative Wakefield audience were treated to a brilliant showcase of some of the highlights from the new opus with frontman Mat getting the audience going right from the off, performing with that live polish that comes from clocking up endless miles on the road gigging up and down the country.

There are a whole swathe of new “proper” Heavy Metal bands coming through at the moment, and along with CackBlabbath favourites Triaxis, Valous are among the very best…
