I caught up with Oha Cade from the ethereal symphonic metal project VALCATA who returned with their powerful new single “Paralyzed” 2nd of December, we talk about this, bringing together an array of talented musicians from across the globe, and all things VALCATA.
Initially beginning as a symphonic/power metal band based in Dublin, Ireland, VALCATA now operates as a symphonic project led by Cade, who is now based in New York. The name VALCATA is a combination of ‘falcata’ (a type of ancient weapon) and Valhalla. 2019 saw the project’s self-titled debut full-length unleashed, followed by the single “Tower” in early 2021. Now in 2022, “Paralyzed” showcases VALCATA’s thriving collaborations and evolving compositions. Dark thundering rhythms burst into life accompanied by a delicate piano and eerie orchestration. Stefani Keogh‘s cleans soar above the metal instrumentation while Marcos L. Peñate‘s demonic harsh vocals bring a menacing impact. From entwining melodies and soaring leads to dynamic percussion and technical elements, VALCATA offers a thrilling experience of symphonic metal. “Paralyzed” is an enchanting addition to their spellbinding discography.
