John Galt – Still Drinking [2019]

“Still Drinking” is the brand-new album by Ukrainian modern glam metal band John Galt. On this record the band leans towards the glamorous side of heavy metal referencing directly the hair/glam/sleaze metal icons of the 80s, like “Guns `n Roses” and “Warrant” while also referencing later comers of the genre like “Hardcore Superstar”, adding modern elements to their sound.

The line-up features lead singer/guitarist Ostap, Oleg on guitars, Sid on bass and Andrew on drum duties. Performance-wise the group are totally accomplished in the genre they have chosen to represent, evidently having spent good time as a live band, which only tightens their performance on “Still Drinking”. The focal point of the band is undeniably their lead singer Ostap who delivers style and intensity through his vocal performance being the main differentiation point of John Galt effectively making them stand out.

John Galt combines the flashy attitude of glam metal with the infectious harmonies brought forward by essential production with all instruments coming through clearly, but emphasizing on the melodic aspects of the songwriting. Essentially their song-writing is built on old school melodies and riffs, modern sounding rhythm parts to once again conclude on classic sounding choruses. The vocals switch from screaming to cleanly melodic and vice versa. One has to hand it to the guys, they have the instrumental technique to come up with plenty guitar melodies and riffs as well as going through a multitude of rhythm patterns.

Favorite tracks include “Cheers”, “On/Off”, “Drink Until You Die“ and “Camaro”. Overall “Still Drinking” is as substantial a glam metal album, as it gets, including all the qualities that will bring you back to its songs time and time again. Recommended to all fans of the genre and beyond.
