Betting on a mix between experience and youth, Valiria brings a modern metal influenced by a vast range of genres inside Heavy Metal music, creating a sound that mix it all and turns it into a original “New Metal” without boundaries.
Formed by Laís Tomaz (Vocals), Luccas Vasoncellos (Guitar), Rodrigo Sughayyer (Bass) and Sergio Barsant (Drums), the band went through several lineups changes until they found the formation and sound they have been searching for.
Their writing are based on day to day matters, exposing human conflicts, such as: abusive relationships (theme of their first single, released in 2014, Uneven Hero), the search for perfection inside a standardised world where the different is unacceptable, and even strong themes such as the controversial accusations the Catolic Church faces.
In March 2015 the band released their second single, “Red Hands”, recorded,
mixed and mastered by its own members, including a “lyric video” also made by the band to help share the song.
Later that same year the Valiria started recording their first which was produced independently again because of the quality they reached with “Red Hands”.
In September 2015 the band was invited to participate of a tribute album to the Brazilian singer Edu Falaschi. “A New Lease of Life” and writes a rereading to the song Introspection of his former band Symbols.
In February 2016 the EP “Blind Faith” was launched,again produced by the band itself, which was made available on Soundcloud, as well as Bandcamp, Google Play and other digital media.
Valiria is currently in studio working on new material.
