Valtozash: This be the launch of their latest album “Boiling Solitude”. It’s a heavy-hitting six track with lots of jazzy-ish bits.

Behold the massive sound that is Valtozash, Australia’s first jazz-metal big band. It’s a seventeen-piece thrash against your jazz-bone; it’s a jab in the eye with a sopranino saxophone; a punch in the jaws with a 24” trash cymbal.

Therein: Serious music by people who can’t be taken seriously.

“Therein introduced us to the slightly nerdy side of progressive music. That I mean as a complement to the almost comedically virtuosic mastery of their instruments.”
