Five years after the release of the albums “Battle Scars” and “Beyond the Realms of Euphoria”, Galahad returned with a rather different and beautiful album.
“Quiet Storms” is a collection of their older songs in mellow versions, but it also includes a several new songs.
You can find the original versions of most of the songs in the band’s previous albums but also in a couple of singles as well.
Here, the listener has the opportunity to enjoy the melodic and more dramatic side of the band, without the loud guitar riffs and the usual powerful tempo.
The piano and the keyboards are the dominant instruments, which, together with Stuart Nicholson’s excellent performance, are creating a wonderful experience overall.
Songs like “This life Could be My Last”, “Guardian Angel” and “Termination”, sound totally different than their original versions, which is very interesting, to say the least.
Personally speaking, I like Galahad a lot, so I couldn’t miss their new release.
I added the album in my collection and never regret it!
I am sure that I am going to enjoy it more on a rainy afternoon, together with a glass of red wine, rather than the heat we experience in Athens right now!
I definitely recommend it to the Galahad fans, but also to those who can enjoy an atmospheric, melodic and kind of melancholic album.
My Rating: 3.5 out of 5.0 stars
