I have never heard of Ghost Season until before this album but I’m most definitely a fan after listening to this release. It has soaring cleans, solo’s and really sing a long choruses what more could you really want? Everything that’s been put in this release is what has been missing in my life and I am super happy that I now know of Ghost Season. Personal favourite has to be Fade Away for the heavy as hell build up at the start with soaring clean riffs over it while the double bass really hits hard in my face and makes me realise I wish I could drum like this guitarist, this song also feels like how Bullet For My Valentine should of done with their Temper Temper album so it’s nice to hear someone do it the right way.
The thing that really stands out for me with this band is that the cleans are super unique as they’ve got influence from Avenged Sevenfold but also other vocal patterns which I know but can’t work out what they’re influenced by. Everything in this album really packs a punch while keeping a extremely well thought out melody through every part of their tracks. It’s very nice to hear in an album where they’ve not overdone it with too many heavy chords and actually thing about what they write with solo’s involved into most parts of their songs.
Another thing that really sits well in this album is the use of backing track synths which build atmosphere above the songs. I’d recommend anyone giving this band a chance as they’ll probably surprise just like they have done with me on this release.
Ghost Season are really delivering a unique release with this one
