Galneryus - New Album

Galneryus - New Album

One year since the release of their previous album "One For All - All For One," Japanese power metal band Galneryus return with their fifth full-length album "Reincarnation." Galneryus's new album comes out September 10, 2008.

Formed in 2001 by Japanese guitar genius and Animetal member Syu, Galneryus released their debut album "The Flag of Punishment" in 2003 (sporting artwork from Final Fantasy artist Yoshitaka Amano). After performing with power metal act Dragonland at the "Melodic Metal Festival" of the same year, Galneryus knicked themselves opener billing for following Dragonland tours and a still-growing international following. What's their secret to success? An orthodox metal sound influenced with elements from both the European metal scene and the early Japanese visual kei movement . . . and of course, tons of intricately played hard rock!

Galneryus's new full-length album "Reincarnation" is scheduled to feature 12 completely new tracks (none of which were included with the "Aslatia/Cause Disarray" single). Album mastered by Ted Jensen of Sterling Sound. Be sure to check out Galneryus's newest live DVD "Live For All - Live For One" as well!
