Two Titans - The Lowdown
"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.’
As a songwriter I could never deny the influence of Black Sabbath and Pink Floyd. Anything beyond that is up to the listener to decide, it's probably a bit of everything we listen to'.
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.
The bands only other previous release came in 2010 in the form of a split 10” with German band Kasan. The band recorded the epic single ‘The Librarian’ which was mixed and mastered by the legendary Billy Anderson and released on SM Musik"
