Galaad - Frat3r (2019)
The third album from this Swiss band.
The band is a quintet with a lineup of percussion, drums, synths, keyboards, bass, guitars and French vocals.
Galaad album debuted in 1992 and followed up that album with their second album in 1996. Then... nothing.
The same people has again returned as Galaad and released this album. They are even gigging now. Well done, guys !
Listed as an eclectic prog band in ProgArchives, I was mentally preparing myself.
The band must have mellowed a lot during these twenty odd years. The music is not particular eclectic.
Take a bit Ange and add some normal rock with heavy metal influences too. Add a lot of neo-prog too. This album is in essence a neo-prog album.
The music is pretty symphonic too with clear references to Ange. The vocals are really good too.
The quality of the songs is good too. This is by no means a great album as some of the songs are a bit dull. Nevertheless, this is a good album and a welcome return to the business again for Galaad.
