“Let's hope the record labels of the world are smart enough to pick up on this very talented band. Great musicianship and songwriting, killer performances, proof that if you look deeper into the scene you'll find bands like VALHALLA that can compete with many of the veterans in the scene.”

“This is progressive metal that never gets too self-indulgent. And with a strong melodic aspect and a good balance between the more serene rock moments ("Live On") and the heavy, upbeat metal elements of "Self-Imposed Hell."”

“... VALHALLA hit the stage, in full Braveheart regalia including face paint. The melodic metal band knows how to entertain and put on one of the most visually and technically appealing sets in Battle of the Bands history, highlighted by the shred fest between (Justin) Zych and keyboardist Paul Kendall.”
