A neo-classical[=/=]PowerMetal band from Osaka, Japan formed in 2001. Galneryus shares a similar style to bands such as [[Music/YngwieMalmsteen Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force]] and Music/{{Stratovarius}}. Though they began their career as a VisualKei band, they quickly dropped the look in favor of a more ordinary casual look, though they continue to almost universally use stage names (with the exception of drummer Junichi Satoh). Despite their talent, eleven-album discography and the presence of ex-Animetal guitarist Syu, they don't have much popularity outside of Japanese metal circles. They also seem to have a thing for flags with at least one song with a title referring to flags on four of their eleven albums.[[note]]"United Flag," "Rebel Flag," "Struggle for the Freedom Flag," "Braving Flag," "The Flag of Reincarnation," and "The Promised Flag."[[/note]]

** "Angel Of Salvation" can be seen as one big 14-minute ShoutOut to Tchaikovsky, since numerous parts of the song are taken straight out of Tchaikovsky's Concerto In D Minor Op.35, including the entire string-orchestra-intro. This has led some fans to joke that "Angel Of Salvation" is "basically a rearrangement of Tchaikovsky's Concerto In D Minor".
