Format: Audio CD
"Valhalla" lived fast and died young, after releasing sole album for United Artists in 1969. That was organ and guitar dominated act, which played heavy acid (or psychedelic) blues, often venturing into hard rock and flirting with prog and jazz. Self-penned material (composed mainly by Mark Mangold - piano, organ, vocals) shows very promissing band still under formation, but similarities (or influences) are far too many, ranging from early Deep Purple to The Doors (at least few tunes), with bass riffs of Grand Funk and elements borrowed from Cream. On top of everything the debut album was seriously damaged (if not ruined) by the bad taste of its producers, who brought exaggeratedly reach orchestrations (which simply smashed Doors-inspired simple piano theme and turned it into a vaudeville) - the ambitions were there, but the talent of George Martin - not.
Aesthetically, the band pre-dated pagan metal (musically it is limited to the opening song only, but artwork is excellent) - at least, to a point.
The weak spot are vocals - although Vernon Joynson describes them as "powerful", on "Hard Times" and "Conceit" they are flat and unispiring, and on "Ladies In Waiting" the singing is simply off-tune (which should obvious even for unrtained ear).
Originally, the band was one of the very few "heavy" acts from Long Island, NY (don't miss excellent "Swampgas"), and, apart from Mark Mangold, there were Dont Krantz (guitar & bass), Rich Ambrose (bass), Eddie Livingstone (drums), Bob Huling (vocals & percussion).
Regretfully "Valhalla" didn't get a chance to evolve into an accomplished and mature band.
It was re-issued twice on CD - by Free (in 2000) and bootlegged by Radioactive in 2007 (with dubious sound).

Just to clarify, this is the Valhalla from Pittsburgh PA. An early Prog-Metal band that released an obscure and very hard to find EP back in the mid 80s. This is not the band from the late 60s cited in the other two reviews.

This Valhalla features vocalist David Fefolt who recorded with the bands Hawk (with Doug Marks) and Masi (with Alex Masi) in the late 80s and more recently sang with the bands Forgotten Realm and Angels of Babylon. The Valhalla CD includes the original EP plus several bonus tracks. A great collection of songs from this forgotten band and great singer.

These recordings sound like they were transferred from cassette and have a few dropouts and some tape hiss but overall, I'm very satisfied with the CD. This is part of the Amazon CDR on demand series and includes a jewel case and inserts with the cover art and song list. However, no band lineup, recording info or liner notes. I though $8.98 was fair price for these hard to find recordings.

I've had it on vinyl since the 1970's, now I have it on CD. The quality is great, and I wish they were still together.
