Bucharest based post-metal band Valerinne came together in early 2012, when Alexandru Das (guitar/soundscapes), Liviu Stoicescu (bass) and Mircea Smarandache (drums), joined efforts in their desire to play instrumental, atmospheric, haunting, loud and emotional music, completed by live visuals. 

Valerinne’s music takes an organic approach to the post-rock genre. The compositions are ample and dramatic, almost soundtrack-like and evoke a wide range of mental images. The sound spectrum swings from dreamy and fragile to gloomy walls of noise and harsh brutal droning sound intensity.

The band released its debut album, Kunstformen der Natur, in late 2012. Since then they have embarked on a European tour together with Bucharest ambient/drone band Environments, have shared the stage with Amenra, Environments, Atlantis, Maybeshewill, Tides from Nebula, Our Ceasing Voice, Stephen O'Malley and have played at the 2013 Dunk! Festival. 

At the end of 2013 the band released its second album, Arborescent, which takes the aesthetic of their first release further, yet sounds completely different. 2016 started for the band with the double release of their new album Monumenta and a split EP with Tauusk, "Telemetry".
