VALLETTA Release New Single "Soot & Ash"


VALLETTA the project featuring current and former members of MO'YNOQ, LORD ALMIGHTY, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME and PRAYER FOR CLEANSING have released their new single "Soot & Ash". The track is taken from their upcoming album Come Alive which will be released on July 14, 2023.


The band shares: "This song is about “spinning your wheels”. Feeling stuck and you can’t seem to find the path forward in life. The lyrical content is metaphorically about being lost in mines. Trying to go down each path but ultimately finding yourself going in circles."



Come Alive explores concepts of being both trapped in yourself, as well as being trapped within your environment and wider institutions/ organizations. Across the album raucous guitars and catchy riffs join forces with dynamic percussion and demonic harsh vocals to produce a powerful impact. From the opener "Come Alive" to "Bringing the Worst", VALLETTA delve into a delicious smorgasbord of guitar tones, thunderous rhythms and melodic leads. The band delicately balance their intricate melodies against the heavy bass, ferocious rhythms and dark lyrics. "Saint" is about finding yourself, and the struggles of losing yourself on the journey. Musically the track combines sections of uplifted chord progressions with gloomier sections mirroring the ebbs and flows of the song's narrative. Becoming lost and left wandering in circles is the inspiration behind "Soot & Ash". Groove rhythms introduce a marching feel progressing the track along, only to be met with eerie dissonance as the path becomes less clear.


VALLETTA succeed in crafting a polished release in Come Alive with catchy hooks all encompassed in a shadowy atmosphere. They delve into intense and emotive concepts which are aptly reflected across through their composition style. Come Alive is hard-hitting with a fierce and deeply engaging sound.
