"Ghosts Like Her"
By Sara Lambeth
Upon becoming a band just over a
year ago, Ghost Season released their debut EP "Ghosts
Like Her," into the world of alternative rock/metal on
September 2nd, 2014. Overall I’d have to say that Ghost
Season nailed it with the effort. The five tracks are
guided by dynamics, galloping passages, pristine guitar
arrangements and brilliantly composed guitar solos.
showcase the band's diversity and musicianship.
The EP opens strong with the
groovin’ track, "Alive." Here you are introduced to the
immaculate guitar work that, throughout the album,
reminisce earlier riffs from In Flames. It could
just be me, but the vocals on "Ghosts Like Her,"
especially the opening track "Alive," have a
Katatonia-esque quality to them.
The intensity is turned up in the
title track "Ghosts Like Her." This number pours a
little more heaviness into the mix with layered vocals
that build into screaming harsh growls. For me, the album
peaks at the fourth song, "Father Time."
From epic vocal moments begging to
be sung live to song structure just slightly off the
beaten path, "Father Time" has it all. In fact, the
entire EP has it all and will leave a hook in your ear
making you want more.
Ghost Season is a name you will
probably start to see a lot. It seems like almost every
day they are adding new dates of shows and festivals they
are playing and rumor has it that a full length album is
already in the works.
