Karl Demata and Chris Heilmann reveal new band, VLY

VLY 1280x720

Karl Demata and Chris Heilmann, formerly of Crippled Black Phoenix, have launched a new prog band, VLY.

The men have described the new venture as “a multifaceted beast where suggestions from progressive rock, classic rock and folk meet with early-Floydian psychedelia, intimate pop melodies, massive walls of epic guitar riffage, post-classical, post-rock and electronic music.”

Debut album I is tentatively scheduled for release later this year.

Demata and Heilmann are joined in VLY by vocalist Keith Gladysz (Diet Kong, Typical Reptiles), keyboardist Elisa Montaldo (Il Tempio Delle Clessidre) and drummer Mattias Olsson (Anglagard, White Willow, Necromonkey).
