The English progressive rockers, active since 1985, have made good use of the time of deceleration due to Corona: With a fat 3-CD version of their album classic "Following Ghosts" (1998), the brand-new release "When The Battle Is Over" by the side project Galahad Electric Company and the current solo CD of their guitarist Lee Abraham, entitled "Harmony/Synchronicity", the British are mobilising against loneliness in times of social distancing. While the Expanded Edition of "Following Ghosts" should have been released in 2018 for the 20th anniversary already, the other two releases were made directly under the influence of the Covid 19 lockdown
Stuart Nicholson has deleted the word consistency from his vocabulary. Because his band Galahad lives with constant changes since their foundation in 1985. Not only their line-up has changed - partly inevitably, partly intentionally - again and again. Also their style was and is as changeable as with hardly any other formation in the Prog. With their new studio album "Seas Of Change" the English from Dorset continue this tradition.
The time of disco sounds and dance/trance influences that took some getting used to and that could still be heard on "Battle Scars" and "Beyond The Realms Of Euphoria" is over for Galahad. "We always had a lot of influences, more than just prog, for example folk and hard stuff like Rammstein", says Nicholson and adds explaining: "You have to consider: When we started, many of us were still teenagers. A lot of things just started to develop."
