The world's first
JAZZ-METAL BIG BAND
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.
Your genre-bone will snap; your teeth will hurt; your ears will
bleed with delight; your heart will fraternise with a bass drum;
you’ll crave trumpet for breakfast. You’ll try your hardest to
like Valtozash, realise you hate it passionately but keep
listening because you hate everything else slightly less. The
harmony, texture and improvisation of jazz mixed with the energy
and brutality of metal comes together to create a filthy love
child you can’t help but adore.
Under the oppression of Andre Bonetti, composer and electric-vibraphonist, Valtozash has among the hottest players in Brisbane and boasts a thirteen piece horn section.
“Volume is not compromised, as the sound of trombones,
trumpets and sax crash against the walls and test the acoustics.
It’s clearly metal jazz, firing on all cylinders, Valtozash not
letting genres act as a boundary to their sound.”
"…make it feel like merely a breeze, regardless of how dense
and recherché their compositions truly are. It sounds like
heavy, pounding jazz with interminable interweaving soli and
confounding riffs, or themes.”
- Can This Even Be Called Music
“...a style which is loud, strong, totally unapologetic and
demands to be heard.”
-Alan Western, the Brisbane Jazz Club
