"Seas of Change" to nowy materiał Galahad. Płyta jest kontynuacją albumu "Quiet Storms".
"Seas of Change" to także pierwszy album z udziałem Lee Abrahama na wszystkich gitarach po jego ponownym dołączeniu do zespołu wiosną 2017 roku
The most exciting news is the fact that we are pleased and proud to announce the release of our first album containing all new material since 2012.
‘Seas of Change’, which is the follow up to the 2017 ‘Quiet Storms’ album which contained fifteen short(ish) tracks and was a much more mellow affair whereas ‘Seas of Change’ is the polar opposite and consists of just one forty three minute track, creating, what we think is a full on no holds barred prog/rock rollercoaster of an album.
‘Seas of Change’ is a kind of hybrid in terms of musical style, featuring more traditional, occasionally pastoral, elements reminiscent of the ‘older’ Galahad sound whilst also incorporating the heavier guitar and more modern ‘techno’ keyboard sounds of the last few studio albums.
‘Seas of Change’ is also the first album to feature Lee Abraham on all guitars following his re-joining of the band in the Spring of 2017. Lee is already familiar to the band and a fully paid up part of the Galahad family having been the band’s bass player from 2005 to 2009 and appearing on one of their most critically and commercially successful albums ‘Empires Never Last’ as well as on a couple of live albums.
We feel that Lee has added his own stamp and expanded the Galahad sound palette whilst still retaining the Galahad feel and overall sound.
‘Seas of Change’ is also Tim Ashton’s first appearance on a Galahad album containing completely brand new material since he appeared on ‘Nothing Is Written‘ back in 1990!
As ever the album was pulled together mixed and mastered by engineer/producer extraordinaire Karl Groom (Threshold/Dragonforce/Pendragon/Arena etc.) at Thin Ice Studios in Surrey.
Musically, as well as the core Galahad members ‘Seas of Change’ features long term honorary member Sarah Bolter who makes an appearance on flute, clarinet and soprano sax.

•Standard black 180g LP in a gatefold cover
