The first thing that pops into my mind upon seeing the band name is Jesus H. Tap dancing Christ, what a totally pathetic band name. If that is even a small indication of what the music will be like I am afraid, very afraid. Luckily the band name does not cover the music on display. What we get served is quite original black metal, which is very slightly experimental and can from time to time be slightly labelled as post black but which, thank God, has no polluting post rock in it but does contain some slight post metal. But the band does stay close enough to black metal as to not come across as alienating. All songs contain a clearly recognizable line and are compact but however fail to become memorable. It is clear that Galaktik Cancer Squad has potential but does not manage to utilize that fully here on Ghost Light. I am very curious how a next album will turn out to be.
