Galvano – Two Titans

Galvano – Two Titans
Devouter Records – 2012
Rock, Sludge, Metal, Doom
Rated: ****

A Zen like stated of mind is slowly created by this sludge yin and yang metal album. Albeit one that is all-powerful and ever conquering the maelstrom of thoughts in the head and the heart. One that has little time for hippie or hip but instead focuses on the darker and more honest sides of life. The Two Titans record by Galvano celebrates all the constant battles going on inside a person and in the outside world. Good and Evil, Light and Dark, Humor and Seriousness. And they do that in an ever-trekking metal rhythm or in dark escapades full of atmospheric heaviness. And come to think this racket is produced by a duo; hailing from the outskirts of Gothenburg, Sweden. Founded in the year of 2005 they’ve only now delivered their first official full-sized album; slowly but steadily carving out their own style and their proficiency. Furious vocals and occasional cathedral like grandness aid the intense rumbling riffs and earth shattering drums. This is doomy sludge on the very point of the needle….
