Album Notes
GHOST OF WAR is traditional AMERICAN METAL, with a just the right touch of PROG/POWER/EURO METAL, to set the tone for what is being described as Metallica meets Helloween meets Iced Earth meets Motorhead!
Imagine if you will the rawness, the fury, the anger of "Master Of Puppets" or "Bonded By Blood" with today's technology. If you took Rob Halford, Ripper Owens, Ronnie James Dio, Bruce Dickinson, Joey Belladonna & Geoff Tate vocals , then added Eddie Van Halen, Zakk Wylde, Yngwie Malmsteen & Richie Blackmore guitar work, then added Steve Harris, Jimmy Bain, Geezer Butler and Geddy Lee bass lines, & the thunderous drumming of Gene Hoglan, Charlie Benante, Paul Bostaph and Mickey Dee, you would have exactly the dream band every metal fanatic wants right? Well that is GHOST OF WAR!!
With their triumphant debut CD "ONLY DEATH IS REAL" they have drawn deep from all their earliest and most current influences. From straight up speed metal trash tunes like "The Absolute Nothing" which has been described as Exodus meets Death Angel. To songs like "SHE" which is a "ballad like" Rush meets Triumph kind of beautiful melodic song. To "Falling Into Eternity" which could very well be mistaken for Iced Earth or Helloween.
This band hails from GETTYSBURG, PA. (with members also residing in BALTIMORE, MD) they have claimed stake in the mid-atlantic region to "BRING THE METAL BACK TO THE PEOPLE". This an American Band! & that classic grand funk railroad song is featured on the CD, with a modern faster, harder hitting version (still staying true to its original roots) that is radio ready for everyone to crank up! Also on the CD is the "Crazy World of Arthur Brown" 1968 classic "Fire". Re-recorded faster, more frantic than the most ripping heavy metal you have heard. Ghost Of War features Thane Farace on lead guitars, who since the age of 4 has been playing guitar , & worshiping some of the greats such as; Randy Rhoads, Eddie Van Halen & Yngwie Malmsteen (as well as countless other axe masters). Jim Mathis on drums who is the most hard hitting skin bashing "viking drummer" you'll ever see (or hear). He is the double bass monster! Gary Daniels on bass (a guitar player by trade) switched over to bass to bring his death metal guitar styling and incorporated them onto the 5 string low end bass machine. Last but not least, Ron Peterson on vocals, who from the age of 5 has worshiped at the alter of rock n roll (Rob Halford especially). His vocals have been mistaken at any time for Halford, DIO, Ripper Owens and Hetfield! With a vocal range that will shatter steel .

You're guaranteed to love if not one , but ALL of the songs on this CD . It has been released for only a few days now and is getting GREAT reviews ! Trust us, you will have fun trying to sing along while listening to this metal, master piece! "ONLY DEATH IS REAL"....
