The Ghost

by The Quick Are the Dead

Kick-in-the-face riffs, mammoth drum beats & yellodic vocals permeate this concept album from The Quick Are The Dead - think Reservoir Dogs meets The Sopranos with a soundtrack by a Helmet/G'N'R/Alice In Chains/Iron Maiden lovechild.

Album Notes
The Ghost picks up musically where The Quick Are The Dead left off – kick in the face riffs, mammoth drum beats, & yellodic vocals. The distinction? One story.

The Quick Are The Dead’s second effort offers up an intriguing storyline; a hit man sent to kill one of his own betrays the ‘family’ that has used him for years as their go-to, and now finds himself on the outside looking in. With his options bleak, he frantically reaches out to a man once thought (and perhaps, actually) dead. The Ghost tells a dark-comic saga through the eyes of it’s four main characters; a story of enlightenment, regret, repression & redemption.

The album begs to tell the tale without being complacent or cocky; a fine balance between the attitude-laden riffage of early Guns ‘n’ Roses, the pure power of Helmet, and the refined pop rock of the Foo Fighters. The opening and closing tracks (“In The Wake Of The Ghost,” “BDR529”) offer an anthemic, rhythmic bookend to a varied yet cohesive album.

The Ghost was recorded at HPJ’s Iris Road studio by Mark Betthauser (Cardiac Radio, Mars at Midnight, Cody Sutherland.)
