One-man-band as German officiating in a different style in GARLEBEN , GALAKTIK CANCER SQUAD was born in 2011 and two years later already displayed counter 4 albums, an ep and two splits. Suffice to say that the guy (Mr. Schwarz for short) is not idle, but it is rarely a sign of quality when the workload is the tip of his nose. I'm not going to say that GALAKTIK CANCER SQUAD is an exception, until...

Before Hypnotic Dirge requested that I review this, I had never heard of the Galaktik Cancer Squad, which upon listening a few times, was quite the surprise.  GCS hails from Hamburg, Germany, and plays a very progressive style of black metal. With Ghost Light being the fourth full-length tucked under the belt, two splits, a compilation and an EP, it's pretty hard to understand why this one-man onslaught is relatively unknown to the masses.

Galactik Squad Cancer's Ghost Light is a kind of first: Even though it is the fourth album by now, it is the first that actually appears physically and not just digitally.

Bring a single person within less than two years, three albums and a compilation of two splits, an EP and two new songs out, one might almost call it kinky diligence, and it imposes itself on the suspicion that the quality suffers.
