Transcending various genres such as Stoner, Metal, Doom, and Rock, Gallactus helps push the boundaries of ones preconceptions of ‘Stoner-Rock’. So pass the bong... Gallactus is back!


Exhaled in 2001, New Brunswick whiskey-fueled Gallactus are like a fuzzy mallet to the eardrums. With their devil horns saluting the dark blues of Black Sabbath and the gravel throat of Motorhead, the four-piece are one of the forefathers of New Brunswick stoner metal, along with Iron Giant and Mood Cadillac. With the new release of their fourth album Nine Mile Woods, Gallactus are ready to up the ante when it comes to earth-shaking heaviness.

Released on Diminished Fifth Records, the album runs the gamut of plodding doom, sun-baked southern rock and fuzzy punk. The 12-track affair, engineered by Nathan Jones, has already been getting great reviews from many publications such as Unrestrained!, Chart Attack, AltSounds UK, Cosmos Gaming and has made a fan in former MTV VJ Iann Robinson. The album has recently been released in Europe, via Code 7 / Plastichead Distribution

Nine Mile Woods was also named #1 Canadian Release by Metal DJ Zombie Boy on Concordia Radio in Montreal Quebec and named Top Album of 2008 by DJ Johnny Suck

However, it is the live setting that gives the band its true identity. Gallactus shows center around one thing - volume. With fuzzed-out guitar and bass and thunderous drums, the band is rounded out with whiskey-burned vocals.
The four-piece has shared the stage with national acts such as Alexisonfire, Misery Index, Krisiun, Neuraxis, Goat Horn.

2009 is already proving to be a great year for Gallactus. The band has already been nominated for the first-ever Loud category for the East Coast Music Awards.

They also gave the Halifax Pop Explosion some heaviness this past October when they performed at the Diminished Fifth Records Heavy Music Showcase.
