Deeply rooted in NWOBHM, the Galactic Superlords set out to refresh the sound of the 70s and 80s. Still the young combo around rock vox Katharina does not explicitly consider themselves a retro concept band. Instead of adhering to any genre conventions, the Cologne based musicians flip off the retro police while they happily play away with smart loans from blues and hard rock. Melodic songs, like the Thin Lizzy reminiscent song “Kraken”, speak for itself and leave no questions unanswered.
This summer, the Galactic Superlords cross the Rhine from their native Cologne where they already spent their adolescence in school together. Why? To let their old school tunes express how much the song of the pioneer time of our favorite genre still manage to sweep you away. And how surprisingly fresh this sound can still sound after forty years!
