Bludgeoning their way out of the North West metal scene, Ghost Keeper are are a fairly new thrash band releasing their debut album on the 21st January 2022
Straight away the album cover gives you a hint of what to expect, a thrasher flicking the middle finger up at an Alien invasion, surrounded by skulls and ankle deep slime/blood… all with a radioactive green glow… I already know I’m going to enjoy this!!
The album features 9 tracks of no messing modern, death tinged, thrash metal.. I hope this is what the lads set out to do as they do it well and the tracks deliver what a thrash album should do, high octane, head banging blasts with occasional slightly tongue in cheek fun!
The album kicks off with title track ‘We Conquer’ which teases you in with a gentle melodic guitar intro before the little green men kick down the door to take over the globe, this is swiftly followed by my current angry morning anthem, as lets be honest which of my neighbours doesn’t need to hear just over two minutes of ‘Fuck Off and Die’
‘Digital Lobotomy’ keeps the riffs flying with its slightly more serious tale of digital media infection of our minds and will before ‘Warmaster’ delivers a tale of mass warfare as the pawns on the ground destroy each others
The album continues to burn through some heavy tunes with ‘They Must Suffer’ , ‘The Guillotine’’ and Blackened Thrashers ‘The Blasphemous One’
With ‘Unspeakable’ and ‘Attack’ rounding of the 29 odd minutes of goodness, it’s straight up thrash, but still with a hefty variation of tempo and vibe, with no song outstaying its welcome all being less than 4 minutes 17 seconds long, this is an all out BLAST and an awesome entry into the strong uk thrash scene, look out for the album in all the normal places on release day and catch them live in the 0161 and beyond!!
Ghost Keeper will be joining us on the UK Thrashers Radio Show on Moshville Radio in the next few weeks so tune in to find out more!!
