Gallia: #AtoZChallenge

Gallia

Who: Gallia of Belgium.

Elyn Vandenwyngaert: Vocals
Yannick Maris: Lead guitar, compositions
Davy Coningx: Rhythm guitar
Laurens Vandebroek: Bass guitar
Dieter Vantilt: Drums

What: They play symphonic metal. Their name reminds me of a spooky ghost town that is within an hour of where I live. Gallia is also a little spooky. Do they go on ghost hunts in between gigs? I think that whenever it’s possible, Gallia should do a concert/ghost hunt. Play music and hunt for ghosts at the same event.

Why: Besides being spooky, they are pretty kickass. I’m hoping that they get the following that they deserve – millions and millions of fans that love metal and ghost hunting.
