VALD HEKS started out back in 2017. With focus on quality, the songs were worked on for a long time. During the pandemic the 2 brothers decided that it is time to show the world what they’ve been working on. The songs were all done in 2020, but they had one obsticle, they had no vocalist. After some time, Emil Martila took upon himself this task. Emil Martila works the drums, guitars and vocals. Niklas Martila on bass. The songs were recorded at Alf Gunnar Wold’s studio GF: U. Now the 1.chapter of VALD HEKS is ready for launch.
About their music:
The vision during the writing was to have a broad specter, both depth and diverse. First and foremost the music has to be honest and go new ways. This is very needed in a time that metal becomes more and more alike. Influences are very diverse, but Mastadon, Gojira, Meshuggah and Rush are among favorites.
