The symphonic metal collective Valcata will release a new standalone single Tower on February 12th,
«We hope you’re as excited for this release as we are», writes composer Oha Cade,
Valcata is a symphonic/progressive metal opera collective assembled by Oha Cade, a composer based in New York. The music is produced online in its entirety and features musicians from around the globe, including both emerging and established artists.
Oha Cade is the creator of Valcata. Originally from Cork, Ireland, he now resides in Brooklyn, New York, from where he curates the project. He is a self-taught pianist and composer.
The planet Valcata has suffered mass extinction from a heatwave that has escalated over the last century. Special teams have been deployed into the galaxies in search of salvation. Earth is one of many possible destinations.
To make a video many people must participate, and the making of Tower is no exception!
