V.L.E. (2001-present): a Black Metal band from New York, New York, USA.
project started by one creature who prefers to be known just as "The VLE" in July 2001, this self-named project was inspired by ocean sunsets, darkness and silence. The idea was to create soundscapes that evoked different emotions in a raw and emotional way. All compositions were compiled without the use of programming or traditional composition techniques. The music of VLE was designed to express his emotions and moods. The sound ranged from classical to death metal, mostly instrumental with only occasional 'growly' and grating vocals.
The discs thus far completed as VLE are Book Of Illusions Chapter I, II and III. Each disc was a loose concept album, all interconnected with the other psychedelic albums in the set.
Although never intended to be published, and lacking the fine polish of a professional studio recording (with ...Chapter I being done on an analog recorder and abandoned for several years), it was picked up by 'Emperor Multimedia's Diskery' sales system for international exposure when that operation sold music.
