Since I got the demotape from this band (with a very interesting painting by Salvador Dal on cover) I thought this band had some talent to show. Fact is they definitely lost their shine. They just jumped on the bandwagon of IN FLAMES half hard rock’nroll half melodic death metal scene that LUBRICANT and AT THE GATES had started. Of course, these new bands have deviated to bring out the most easy listening elements discarding the interesting twisted, fierce parts. Sometimes bands like IN AETERNUM or WATAIN got the right spirit, sometimes they do not. GANDALF has nothing that could convince me to rate ’em as a good band. Too much classic slamming rock for my ears. Ah the producer behind this waste is Andy Laroque from KING DIAMOND. Ask me if I care.
