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. Who wants to get an impression of the older material is on the label side referenced on can be quite a download of old material, which seems quite worthwhile to listening to this album, but just as well to get a first impression before you get by Ghost Light can convince. How do you want to do around it: Certainly both will work, provided the old stuff come even begin to Ghost Light approach.

Because it does not take long to get from Ghost Light to be convinced. The album begins with Ethanol Nebula still with plenty of strumming, so clearly differentiated sounds are played after two minutes, with speed changes and multi-layered guitar game that comes across times dazzling, sometimes dark. The same can also be from over eight minutes long When the Void whispers my name say that quietly begins, however, ever-increasing and endless beschwörerischen completion lying. Add lichterlohen widths convinced by a contrast from monotonous drums with filigree guitars and Ghost Light, the title track in turn builds tension by building a contrast from punchy and sluggish. Hypnosis goes to the end then again relatively quickly to the point, but also breaks the pace always happy and thus remains unpredictable.

An album that draws a captivated: post-rock, death metal influences, occasionally thrash and black metal give a mixture of melancholy, aggression and power. All so very tricky in that there is nothing to separate them and get excited about the whole length white.
