More information: ‘Beyond The Realms Of Euphoria’ is the second new studio album to be released this year from established English progressive rock band Galahad. Recorded, engineered and mixed by Karl Groom (Threshold) at Thin Ice studios in Surrey. ‘Beyond The Realms Of Euphoria’, Galahad’s eighth studio album, shows the band treading similar water to that of ‘Battle Scars’ which was released earlier in 2012 but with a few additional and unexpected twists and turns.
As with ‘Battle Scars’, ‘Euphoria’ contains a plethora of different styles from rock and metal through to techno, ambient and dance sounds via occasional nods to traditional Prog! Throughout, the production is modern and pristine, incorporating powerful, direct guitar riffs, lush keyboard arrangements and occasional quieter passages of subtle beauty, melding together to create an often massively wide and epic sound.
In recognition of the band’s 25 year plus history, a new recording of their classic song Richelieu’s Prayer, featuring previous band member Mark Andrews (who wrote the original music for Richelieu’s) on additional keyboards, is included as a bonus track on the CD.
