Biography

Japan (2001 – present)

Galneryus is a Japanese Power Metal band formed in early 2001 by guitarist Syu and vocalist YAMA-B. They play material inspired by metal legends Dream Theater, Stratovarius, and X Japan.

The current members are Masatoshi “Sho” Ono (vocals), Syu (guitar), Taka who replaced Yu-To in 2009 (bass), YUHKI (keyboard) and JUNICHI (drums.) Veterans of the heavy metal scene, they set to work assembling a band. Syu, known as guitarist for the indie heavy metal bands ValkyR, Animetal and SPINALCORD, where he also served as lead vocalist, and vocalist YAMA-B, who worked with bands Gunbridge and Rekion, originally were joined by keyboardist A (of Valkyr) and drummer Toshihiro Yui (Formerly of Honey Quest and Cemetary.) They soon were to recruit keyboardist Yuhki, of Ark Storm, and drummer Junichi Satoh. After Tsui left in 2006, they recruited yu-to of DELUHI. They were signed to VAP Records. Syu writes music for the band and contributed his deep, roaring vocals, while lead vocalist Yama-B contributes the songwriting, with lyrics and song titles in English. Galneryus has a dress style that borders on the style of visual kei, with medievally styled and leather dress, toting instruments with coloration to match,although recently they have set for a more casual style.

    Japan's been pretty good to me this year, and September is no exception. I wish Light Bringer's upcoming album would get released then too. The 4th quarter is going to be anti-climatic after all this. :P

    September 24th is getting expensive: Onmyo-Za, Galneryus and Exist Trace so far. 13000 yen for 4 CDs, ouch (I'm getting the limited edition for the last 2).

    WACKEN and HELLFEST? Now those are great goals. How often do we see bands publicly expressing their hopes and dreams like this? And thanks for the updates, especially about Onmyouza. I've been gradually listening to their stuff and want to hear more!

    I already expected that Judgement Day would be on the new album and I am happy about it. Finally a decent version of the song. I am really excited for September 24th. Two new albums by Onmyouza and now Vetelgyus too. This is going to be awesome.

    I am really wondering how the new album will turn out. Its supposed to be more rock and more catchy, and I don't know if that is a good thing. The celtic influences and the 8 minute long instrumental sounds great though. Can't wait :)

    Super excited to hear that Yuhki has two songs on the album! I love every song that he's composed.

    Ye, Never Ending Story is not really an amazing triple A song, as how it is right now.

    We did got it, Silent Revelation as the final encore (after a so so song from next album Vetelgyus) in Paris, tonight. Best moment of the concert, actually. :)

    Thank you! I was really hoping for Silent Revelation..but whatever. Sho and Syu spoke in japanese for the most of the time. Sho just said "thank you" in german and in english. Yuhki's arm looked pretty good for me, i guess so yeah. They sold quite a bit of merchandise but it was a bit expensive lol.

    お疲れ様です!(Welcome back, well done!) They don't sell gobs and gobs of merchandise, do they? Looking at the setlist, I'm really surprised that they didn't play Destiny or Silent Revelation. Did Sho MC in English, Japanese, or German? Was Yuhki's arm totally healed?
