*Google translation of German review

In the Hanseatic city of Hamburg, Garleben, Grey Time and morphine are certainly made โ€‹โ€‹a name in the local metal fans. This black metal bands have one thing in common with Galactik Cancer Squad, namely Mastermind suspicion. With "Ghost Light" this now brings his fourth album under the banner of Team Galactik Cancer Squad out, but for the first time this album is also available as a physical medium. The easy getting used German-English name of the existing since the year 2011 Volume, was already close in the first albums directly that the partly German English partially, lyrics thematize the cosmos and the universe in the first place. Naturally, suspicion remains true to himself here, so also "Ghost Light" dealing in this way with these issues. As varied as the languages โ€‹โ€‹of the texts may be, so monotonous are the songs themselves. Although to be groovy and brutal drumming, but simple catchy riffs, melodies and good offer chic growls, but overall happens especially in regard to the song lengths very little. Some riffs are even maxed out so that they are already very stressful at first hearing; often these riffs are additionally in such a shrill pitch that they begin to annoy even without the Ausreizen. Moreover, it is disappointing that only in the songs " When The Void Whispers My Name "and" In lots of lights lengths "- and then only in places - a spacey atmosphere is created. Similarly, there are only these two songs that can really show off with really good moments. The latter, in particular, offers an extremely successful synth part with strings and a piano. , the premiere of the first physical album is so successful in any way.

Galactik Cancer Squad begin their first physical album 'Ghost Light' peppy. After listening to the first Silberling can certainly arouse some interest, but not enough to make quite as good approaches to want to listen to it often. Thus, this 51-minute film is sinking in the mire of mediocrity due to lack of imagination.

Rating: 4/10
