Galvano is a Sludge Metal Band from Sweden

The members are:

Mattias Nööjd - Guitars/Vocals
Fredrik Käll - Drums

Galvano are an excellent Progressive Sludge Metal Band taking influence from a whole range of bands but still adding their own style of play into proceedings. It’s hard to believe that this band is a duo as from the sound of their brilliant debut album – Two Titans – it sounds like they have an army behind them.

I recently reviewed this excellent album here and interviewed the band here.

Two Titans sees the duo deliver sludgy powerful riffs and intense drumming combined with slowed down dark passages. They enable you to go through a full spectrum of emotions then back again. Describing the album, Mattius (singer/guitarist) comments that:

‘All these songs are personal, all the way throughout the record. They are about personal matters and demons. It's about finding the darkest corners, the dark lord within and to show up for battle. Portrayed as two titans in constant battle: Good/Evil, Darkness/Light and so on. And sometimes wanting to embrace either side. It's about knowing when your mind is pulling tricks and being able to stop it. It's also celebrating our musical force as a duo.’

Galvano hail from Gothenburg, Sweden and comprises of duo Fredrik and Mattias. Formed in 2005, the band had one direction and one aim, to create something heavy. But it wasn’t until 2007 that the band let the outside world hear what they were creating when they released their first demo and started to play shows. The following years saw more touring across Europe playing alongside bands such as Black Breath and Alaskan.
