Gaillion - Renewal and Release (2017)
The fifth EP from this US band.
Gaillion is a trio with a lineup of keyboards, bass, drums, guitars and vocals.
The band released a good album in 1989 called Admit One before they disappeared. The resurfaced in 2015 again and has released five EPs.
This EP is twenty-three minutes long and gives me enough music to establish where the band is now. Besides of that, the cover artwork is good enough to be included here to the joy of this blog's readers.
Gaillion is a neo-prog band. Just as they were in 1989 too on their only album to this date.
The band has changed to a more trio based neo-prog where the keyboards is not that prominent. I would compare a lot of their music to the latter days Rush.
The sound is good and I really like the guitar harmonies. Ditto for the vocals. The bass is also prominent in their sound.
The songs are OK. The quality is somewhere between decent and good. What about a new album and a re-release of Admit One, guys ? Check out this EP.
