3 stars Many years ago Galahad was a promising neo-prog band but when they completely failed to make impression during a triple progrock concert in Amsterdam in the late Nineties, I decided to drop Galahad. So I was very surprised when I got this DVD, I didn't know that Galahad was still alive and I was even more surprised to notice that they are not only alive but also very progging!

After the intro based upon Prokofiev (like ELP) we hear an electronic inspired sound, propulsive guitar riffs and the singer enters the stage with a remarkable outfit: eye make-up, black painted nails, a long coat and a silken sjawl, he could have been the singer of a glamrock - or Eighties New Wave band! But his voice his strong and his stage antics are great with lots of expression, this man knows how to entertain a progrock audience. In the past Galahad their sound had obvious mid-Genesis echoes but the current Galahad sounds electronic featuring sumptuous kebyoards layers, frequent synthesizer sounds and fiery, often propulsive guitar work. During my first session I got more and more impressed by this Galahad on DVD: great interplay, wonderful visuals and lots of strong soli on guitar (varied but functional) and keyboards (from church- organ to swinging piano). At some moments the music reminds me of IQ because of the sumptuous keyboards and fiery guitar but in general Galahad sounds quite unique. The bonus features are a nice docu (15 minutes), an interview and studio recordings. Recommended to the more adventurous progheads! Rating: 3,5 stars.
