Gallileous are a band from Poland that started out playing funeral doom metal but have evolved into more of a stoner/doom/sludge metal direction over the years and this is a review of their 2014 album "Voodoom Protonauts" which was released by Epidemie Productions.
Wind and nature sounds start off the album and a few seconds later heavy guitars find their way onto the recording and once bass guitars, psychedelic sounds and clean singing vocals are added onto the recording the music starts going for more of a stoner doom metal direction along with some elements of 70's rock.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the organs also bring in elements of 60's rock at times an d the songs also bring in a good mixture of both clean and heavy parts and the only thing that keeps this music from sounding completely retro is the sludge influence which makes the album have more of an up to date feeling and when solos and leads are utilized they stick to more of a proto style of metal and the whole album sticks to a very slow musical direction from beginning to end.
Gallileous stay away from the funeral doom metal sound of earlier recordings and plays more of a 70's style of doom metal and psychedelic rock while also mixing it in with the heaviness of sludge, the production sounds very old school yet professional at the same time while the lyrics cover paranormal, metaphysics, occult and mythology themes.
In my opinion Gallileous are a very great sounding mixture of psychedelic rock, doom metal and sludge and and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Voodoom Protonauts" and "Omen Of Death". 8 out of 10.
