Profile The band started in November 1992 as Shooting Gallery, but decided to drop Shooting and change to [gaeleri] before the 1996 debut album release.  This first album is unfortunately nearly impossible to find these days. I hear killer melodic hard rock with hints of Led Zeppelin and Whitesnake in their sound with a moder touch and recommend grabbing this if you ever see it. The vocal of Anders Bengtsson are amazing, a great rock voice with Coverdale powertouch!

The musical trademark of the band was always strong melodies and the combination of the excellent voice of Anders Vidhav (Bengtsson), the brilliant guitars by Niklas Rollgard and the solid foundation of Jonas Andersson’s bass, all backed up by Patrik Borgkvist’s powerful drums. Together the four members of [gaeleri] formed a strong musical unit inventing the unique [gaeleri] sound.
