Alan79 Amazing album! Obscure and experimental. Metal dreamscapes with influences of Paul Chain and Black Sabbath. Favorite track: Maelstrom Of Consciousness.

Fastnbulbous Gallo digs deep into his unique vision of doom that's rich with prog and psychedelia. Most likely titled in tribute to legendary Italian doom pioneer Paul Chain's Violet Theatre (the name under which he recorded some landmark releases from 1984-87), Violet Dreams is a massively ambitious undertaking. | fastnbulbous.com/new-albums-of-the-week-2014-08-05/ Favorite track: Wall Of Doom.

______________________

JOHN GALLOW is the most recent alter ego of John Gallo of BLIZARO and ORODRUIN fame, undoubtedly one of the most talented (and most overlooked) rock/metal artists of our times.
Through this new doom incarnation, the singer/guitarist extraordinaire from Rochester, NY investigates the spiritual aspects of Death and the mysteries of the after-life, similarly to what was done in the past by Paul Chain, Black Hole, and other dwellers of the dark.

It's a solitary and mostly improvised music voyage, the observation of an artist that has interiorised the gloomy riffs and nightmarish atmospheres of doom, transforming them into mystic and mysterious mindscapes.

"After years I am finally opening a new chapter in my doom journey," has commented Gallo. "Violet Dreams features 14 cuts of heavy riff madness. It's Black Hole, Paul Chain, and early Candlemass all in one cocoon!"
