John Gält claims to be an “alcohol-driven” four-piece band from Kharkiv, Ukraine, formed in the summer of 2010. Taking its name from an infamous book, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, John Gält debuted on October of 2011 with the 3-tracks demo, First Run. Served Hot, the debut album from Ukrainian sleaze/glam band John Gält was released on February 26th through Italy’s Street Symphonies after a delay. Oleg Rudnev replaced guitarist Ivan.
JOHN GÄLT - SERVED HOT - STREET SYMPHONIES
It sucks that this Ukrainian band is named after a fascist figure, but if we close our eyes to that then we have a hell of a hard rocking band here with talent that reaches the stratosphere. Metal and hard rock are creatures of the hard working, honest and united blue collar. The group’s name must be ironic. I hope.
How many good hard and heavy bands from Ukraine do you know? I know, the question should have been how many hard and heavy bands from Ukraine do you know period? It is with delight that this girl reports that the band is up to international standards and then some. They sadly do not have the cool and sexy longhaired looks we ladies like, but the chops are all there. John is a creature of glam and sleaze, but (One More) Punk Rock Anthem goes at it really heavily, White Widow is catchy but brings out the piano. When Nature Calls brings in the Iron Maidenish guitar harmonies. The singer here sounds like really old Vince Neil. Bad Brotherhood could be Skew Siskin.
Crashdïet influenced the band and fans of those guys, as well as Crüe’s debut and old Swedish hard rock.
Buy this one guys and gals. Not only the production is professional, but also it does not have a single filler. - Sheila Wes Det
