Back in the 90s, Canadian hard rockers Sven Gali released two very enjoyable albums. 1992’s ‘Sven Gali’ cast the band in a similar mould to ‘Slave To The Grind’ era Skid Row on a set of songs with big riffs and bigger choruses, while 1995’s ‘In Wire’ took a heavier direction and – like so many hard rock acts during that era – found the band swimming against the musical tide, despite their best efforts to stay vital. Much like Vince Neil’s ‘Carved In Stone’ released at a similar time, ‘In Wire’ mightn’t have been exactly what fans wanted upon release, but as the years have passed, it has sounded better and better.
Twenty five years on from their second LP ‘Inwire’, hard rockers Sven Gali returned in June 2020 with their third release, the appropriately titled ‘3’. With four riff-heavy tracks that take the bones of their earlier sound and potentially make it heavier, the new EP is a fantastic listen for anyone who enjoys a heavy sound with melodic roots.
