3 stars One can easily get lost in hundreds of contemporary Prog band, confusing names, styles and musicians. There are bands that hang on somewhere near, you may even know their names but never heard their music. Maybe one of it could become another favourite band for you…who knows? I never waste a minute and grab every unknown Prog CD that I can - that’s exactly how I fell in love with ENGLAND, MAGENTA, MINDGAMES and many others. And that’s what I recommend to do FOR EVERYONE – don’t hesitate, try everything and be grated.

“Empires never last” is my second effort to get into GALAHAD. “In Moment of Complete Madness” once reviewed by me was a good but for Neo-collectors-only album. This one is quite another in mood (closer to Progressive Metal IMHO!), darker, stronger, better recorded, with killer epics like “I Could be God”, title track and “This Life could be the Last”…but it didn’t click on me EMOTIONALLY. Still I’d like to recommend it to IQ, MAGENTA, DISCIPLINE, ARENA, APPLE PIE etc fans, but GALAHAD seems to be a “just-for-the-record” experience for me. Seriously, don’t take it as offence, but it happens in different ways – some are blown away, some are totally ignorant after trying. But it’s better to try than to not, I insist!!!
