Empires Never Last

A very modern sounding 'heavy' progressive album, incorporating big distorted guitars combined with, at times, hyponotic thick keyboard sequences melded together with lush orchestrated arrangements.

Album Notes
This is easily Galahad’s heaviest, most muscular and guitar orientated album to date.

With ENL Galahad are showing their teeth and at times what a fine set of razor sharp teeth they are! The band are, at times, verging on Prog/Metal territory but without the big hair and the histrionics!!

What we have here is Galahad the ’Rock’ band, at times morphing into Galahad the modern ’Metal’ band but still containing elements of Galahad the ‘Progressive’ band.

Although a lot darker both musically and lyrically from previous albums the sound is still distinctively ‘Galahad’.

Keyboards still feature prominently, but the band evokes a more industrial feel at times on this album with its liberal use of sequencers, effects, samples and unusual electronic sounds.

There are quieter moments, but these only serve to provide the required light and shade, there are certainly no ballads on ENL!

Empires Never Last was recorded at Thin Ice Studios, Surrey and engineered and mixed by Karl Groom who has worked with numerous prog/rock/metal bands including Arena, Mendeed, Dragonforce, Edenbridge and, of course his own band, Threshold.

Therefore, as you would expect, the production is pristine and the sound is huge! Thus, the energy, spirit and attitude of the band has been captured on this album unlike any before it.

Empires also features a few special guests including Karl Groom (Threshold) on guitar, Clive Nolan (Arena, Pendragon) on fake dulcimer and Tina Booth (Magenta) on vocals.
