The Sludgelord News: Wells Valley's Debut Album Now Streaming At Decibel Magazine

With the release of Wells Valley’s debut album “Matter as Regent” just one week away, the Portuguese sludge/post-metal trio have teamed up with America’s leading extreme metal magazine Decibel to give fans a chance to hear the entire album before it is released.

Listen to “Matter as Regent” HERE.

The band recently released a music video for the song "Star Over a Wheel". The video was shot byAndré Godinho for StopWorking&GoOutside and you can view it here.

The forty minutes long, 6-track album is an incredibly unpredictable and evocative release, blending the monolithic heaviness of sludge/doom with the intricacies and atmosphere of dark post-metal. The trio have crafted an organic, intriguing and crushingly heavy sound that falls somewhere between the suffocating atmospherics of Neurosis and Cult of Luna and the complexities of Voivod and Ved Buens Ende.
Co-released by Raging Planet and Chaosphere Records"Matter as Regent" is a fascinating release that sets Wells Valley as one of the most promising and innovate bands emerging from Portugal in the last couple of years.
