Original first press of the rare private acid-warped debut by the San Diego CA/Hartford CT resident, who specifically had this album mastered and pressed in Kingston Jamaica! Valhalla is mad, atonal electronics, splintered vocal fragments and bucketloads of white noise, suddenly interrupted by almost normal string synth or Froese-ish guitar. Melodies turn into random squirts of notes, pseudo-tribal rhythms pulsate in and out... Getting the picture? This is quite bonkers, and you really will probably either love it or hate it. This brainburning floorsucking acid mindbomb's unprecedented conflation of liquidly phasing astral keys, searing sustain guitar and unhinged avant-rock structural permutations is one for the ages. You can catch bits of everything from The Cosmic Jokers to Bomis Prendin to The High Fidelity Orchestra to Arthur Brown's Kingdom Come within this kaleidoscopic cyclotron. Strong, strong medicine. Avoid operating heavy machinery when caught in it's vortex."
