“With their debut album "Path Of Virtue” the German quintet Vvlva (post Orcus Chylde) revives 1970s heavy-psychedelic krautrock in an impressive way. 
The blend of epic, spherical Hammond organ passages, hard driven guitar riffs/solos and distinctive vocals provides an agile and multifaceted listening experience. 
Finally a band with courage for individuality that delivers the organ-driven Uriah Heep-, Deep Purple- or Bloodrock-sound in a timeless and authentic manner. 
With “Dieb Der Seelen”, which reminds of very early Puhdys hard rock tracks like “Türen öffnen sich zur Stadt”, they definitely have a finger on the pulse of time!“ ….~


Vvlva is a new German 5 piece band born our of the ashes of he band Orcus Chylde. Black Sands starts things off with a solo organ intro that lasts for about 1min before the rest of the band kicks in. This track is very much like Uriah Heep down to the details of how they did the harmony vocals. The lead vocal is a bit sung and spoken with a bit of a harsh, shouty edge at times. Great opening track. Now you know what you are in for! Motel Floor has a great guitar riff and start stop almost funky groove. Vocal is a bit shouty and in your face at times. Nice wah wah solo as well in this great track. Cause and Effect has a heavy guitar riff and a more laid back vocal with the organ a bit more in the background to start. Dieb der Seelen is sung in German and very passionately sung in this more hard rocking track that is like early Deep Purple! Think In Rock period. Cryptic Faith starts off slowly with a nice guitar solo before the groove kicks in and off we go. Some nice harmony vocals on this track as well. Love the way the organ and guitar mix into almost sound like one. It gives it a bit of a psychedelic feel. Adam’s Owe is a short powerful 3mins track. The title track of the album starts very laid back before the wah guitar kicks in and great groove leads the way. The organ and guitar parts are really excellent in this track. The song has a bit of mysterious feel to it at times and some of the best vocals on the record. Second Voice closes out the record with a more bluesy track with some slide steel guitar by Wolfgang (guest). 
On first listen, the band reminded me a lot of the recent Danish band, Grusom, who are also very Deep Purple, Uriah Heep inspired with a heavy Hammond organ driven sound. Solid 70s inspired rock and roll….by..Dr.Space…..~


Where you also amazed, wowed and enchanted by that three track EP Shaking Bones released by Vvlva in 2016? Well, we were. We were right there with them, kandy-kolored, elektrik and kool-aid guzzling! From those first seventies inspired tones to that final abrupt ending we were on board with Vvlva and loved their psychedelic hardrock. It had everything we love so dearly and we were longing to hear more. Well, here it is! The new album Path To Virtue will be released on February 16th and is one magical carpet ride! It is one big ‘yeah!’ and ‘groovy!’ from beginning to end. And it is one big psychedelic prog record like the greats of yore used to make. It sounds grandiose and gigantic in all its efforts. See me waving my arm around, gesturing like madman! You can’t help it! This really makes you all warm and fuzzy inside! Giddy with glee! And as mentioned it is much more progressive than their earlier EP. Making every repeated listening session a new and colorful experience! It’s all happening man! Path To Virtue is the yellow brick road everybody needs to start walking. It will lead you to the majestic castle, and there, the show shall commence in all its glory! Path Of Virtue is the soundtrack to everything wild and wonderful you can imagine!….JK…~
