Founded in 2015, Astray Valley is a modern metal band from Barcelona made up of Clau Violette on vocals and gutturals, Joan Vena and Adrià Funerailles on guitars, Alex Albano on bass and Unai Splinters on drums, differentiating themselves within the genre for the use of mystical and dark stories in music, image and concerts.
