Art Rock Show – Paradis Posthumes (Week 38)

De Zwitserse rockband Galaad bracht na een afwezigheid van meer dan 20 jaar een nieuw en fantastich mooi album uit. Na heel wat positieve kritieken, keert de band nu terug met hun vierde studio album getiteld “Paradis Posthumes”. Het album werd uitgebracht op het Lokita Records label.

Prog Archives review: “Galaad is releasing its 4th CD at the start of the year; after founding in 1988, dissolving and reuniting they may have found their musical Nirvana with age. I say no more because I have already reviewed their penultimate! Keyboards, Moog, guitar solos and expressive vocals in French, aggressive lyrics about man’s eternal struggle against his destiny, flirting with prog metal, grunge and finally crossover with reminiscences progressive 80 ‘; an epic metallic sound, pop at times and an amazing groove atmosphere.

Fragile as hard, delicate as abrupt, the musical oxymoron is on the other side of the border, let’s see if it stays in the footsteps of “Frat3r” or returns to the fundamental “Vae Victis”. A sound originally smelling good of Genesis, Marillion or Ange, there more muscular-prog crossover like a musical bomb filled with emotions; this latest album is a snub to death, to the sad fate, to the battered fate of humanity. (…)

Galaad is releasing an album with texts in divine French, on a metal and groove variation, on a current neo, a pinch of pop, would the future bite into this fusion? An energetic album at the top much better than ‘Frat3r’, an essential album which gives back its letters of nobility to the French language, thank you Swiss, thank you GALAAD, buy it and remember, those absent are always wrong.”
