Galaad biography
Heavy prog band from France, GALAAD makes a keyboard driven music, and the vocals (in french) stand out pretty much as well. Songs are of full of shifting moods, aggressive singing, complex rhythms, soaring guitar solos, fantastic Moog lines, and beautiful pastoral flute and piano duets. Another group in the new wave of French neo-progressive bands. They are a band to watch!

Special Collaborator Neo Prog Team

4 stars Short-lived Swiss Neo Prog band formed in 1988 and coming from Bern.Galaad were led by charismatic singer Pierre-Yves Theurillat and featured also keyboardist Gianni Giardiello, guitarist Sebastien Froidevaux, bassist Gerard Zuber and drummer Laurent Petermann.Reputedly the band had a self-titled demo out from early-90's, sure thing is their official debut came in 1992 with ''Premier Fevrier'' (1st of February) on Musea Records.

Pretty much a legendary band in my books, their captivating and fairly complex Neo Progressive can only be compared only to the works of bands such as COLLAGE, TRIANGLE, CLIFFHANGER and SAENS.Far from being accesible, their style incorporates elements from ANGE and MARILLION into a demanding, lyrical and very adventurous mix.All compositions feature great structures and a great balance between instrumental madness and vocal-led passages.They are highlghted by the impressive, slightly distorted guitar playing of Froidevaux, both on rhythm and solo guitars, the dreamy keyboard work of Giardiello, featuring some great symphonic parts with evident Classical breaks, and of course the magnificent performance of Theurillat behind the microphone.Coherent arrangements full of shifting moods, keyboard- based instrumentals, alternation between strong and mellow parts and a grandiose atmosphere overall guarantee a massive number of repeated listenings.''Sabliere'' must be among the best Neo/Symphonic Rock compositions to have been written by a band of the style with its dramatic atmosphere throughout.

A pure gem not only for Neo Prog lovers but also for anyone into demanding and highly theatrical Progressive Rock.The rich sound, intricate melodies and deep atmosphere of the album are among the best to be heard in the scene.A milestone for the Neo Prog scene.Add another half star for the genuine composition of ''Sabliere''.

Review by Discographia

4 stars the album is sung mostly in French with some English passages. French singing is sweet, powerful and the lyrics are poetic and worked, but also a very strong image of the music. The sound is powerful, the guitars very furious. What is interesting is the song that pushes the limits of the plaintiff to give the bass, which gives a beauty, and the guitars are hard, the rest is very progressive and worked. It is difficult thing to say why I do not consider this album as a masterpiece even though it possesses the necessary qualities, perhaps lacking a touch of madness or an additional additional title that pushes the limits even further.
