VALS is an anarcho-punk band originated in Enschede in Holland. VALS was born in march 2000. Our intention is to increase awareness of the world we live in. Our lyrics are very political and address topics like animal-rights, mass-consumption and force-fed morality. We are inspired by bands like Rudimentary Peni, Crass, Conflict, Oi Polloi, Dirt, Cress, Zounds and Antisect. Our music sounds rough, unpolished, sometimes fast sometimes not so fast, but always with a lot of power and energy. In our 6 years of existence we have played loads of shows throughout Holland.
