JOHN GALLOW is the most recent alter ego
of John Gallo of BLIZARO and ORODRUIN fame, undoubtedly one of
the most talented
― and overlooked
― rock/metal artists of our times. Through this new
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, introspective, and
mostly improvised music voyage; the observation of an artist that
has internalized the gloomy riffs and sorrowful atmospheres of
doom, transforming them into mystic, bizarre, and abstract mindscapes.
"After years I am finally opening a new
chapter in my doom journey," John Gallo commented. "Violet Dreams features
14 cuts of heavy riff madness. It's Black Hole, Paul Chain, and early
Candlemass all in one cocoon!"
