If you like to know more about Marco:
Born in Gran Canaria to a Danish/Italian mother and a Spanish father in ’79, Al, short for Alberto, always showed an interest
in music. At age 13, he got his first electric guitar and has been playing ever since. However, initially more drawn to grooves
and drumming, he also managed to teach himself how to play the drums. He attended a private school for audio engineering
in Barcelona where he was trained in both music recording and live sound reinforcement. During which time he had the
opportunity to team up with an independent label and work as a live drummer and studio tech, among other things. He’s played
in many different bands with genres ranging from trash metal all the way to techno pop, but his heart beats to the sounds of blues, soul,
classic r n’ b and rock music. Currently working in Gran Canaria as a gigging musician playing (mainly) cover songs, in his
spare time, he works in his home studio where he records his own music and some wonderful clips for Valhallir.at as one of the beta-team.
Nick Meola is a professional bassist from Long Island New York. He has played in multiple bands and genres
ranging from pop to metal. Nick played hundreds of shows touring with the band Dank Effect a pop/punk band.
Not only a live touring musician Nick also runs a production company called Arcane Studios. With 15 years of
recording experience he has crafted an ear for quality bass tones. Nick is the sole member of the band Arcane
Sanctuary a metal project of his own design. Nick is also a member of the Honest Amp Sim Review.
Ronnie „Bassbär“ Verant is a musician from Bolzano (Italy), who after years as a scantily talented keyboarder and guitarist
discovered the bass guitar as his weapon of choice.
At the moment he is to be found in the heavy rock outfit „Blacktrain“ and funk/pop/soul group „Feinkost“, both situated in
Vienna, as well as a german chanson project and an 80s pop cover band, both still in their early stages (no thanks to the
corona pandemic…). After stints of varying length in Italy, England and ultimately Vienna, he recently relocated to the Austrian
region of Burgenland, where he has settled down with his husband and two cats. A friend of Andy’s for years,
he recently found himself among the Valhallir ranks, taking care of translations in Italian and some mean bass-videos.
Next stop: world dominance. Obviously.
An Italian guitarist from the South of Italy, Nico Celeste began his musical journey at the age of 17, with his
experience ranging from prog rock, heavy metal, pop to pop-rock and soul.
Fractal Audio System is his first choice when it comes to creating new guitar sounds.
Whenever he gets the chance, you will always find him in his home studio, experimenting with new projects.
His main trait? Music addiction, of course!
