GHOST SEASON – Debut Album “Like Stars In A Neon Sky” Out 1/27 On Pavement Entertainment

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on January 14, 2017 by Metal Odyssey


Athens-based Alternative Metal band GHOST SEASON will release its debut album, Like Stars In a Neon Sky, on January 27 via Pavement Entertainment.

The album was co-produced by vocalist J.Loren Wince, from alt-rockers HURT.

“This is what we were waiting for,” said bassist Dorian Gates. “Over the last year we have put our hard work to make this album get to you. And we are blessed and honored to have by our side J Loren from Hurt and the guys at Pavement Entertainment.”

Guitarist Nick Christolis adds: “We blended in our music all of our influences: old meets new, classic meets modern. Thoughts turn into music, music becomes food for thought.”


The twelve-track beast follows the band’s 2014 EP Ghosts Like Her and includes the single “Break My Chains,” which was released in December 2015. Like Stars in a Neon Sky also features an adrenalized rendition of Savage Garden’s pop hit “Break Me Shake Me.”

Revolver Magazine will help give GHOST SEASON a proper introduction to Metal fans with the exclusive premiere of the video for “Fade Away,” set to post on the album’s January 27 release date.

FROM ASHES TO NEW “DOWNFALL” – A Metal Odyssey Album Review

From Ashes To New - Downfall - promo EP cover pic - 2015 - #0339966MOSN

4 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!


FROM ASHES TO NEW are a Rap/Alternative Metal band from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Their new EP Downfall has grabbed my attention in a positive way, as you’ll read below. The band’s debut studio album, Day One, is slated for a February 2016 release.

Adding to the excitement that is stirring within the From Ashes To New camp is their forthcoming supporting role on the Christmas Vacation Tour; a tour which boasts Falling In ReverseAtreyu and Assuming We Survive. From Ashes To New just concluded a supporting role on the Five Finger Death Punch Tour; a tour that also featured Papa Roach and In This Moment. ‘Nuff said and whoa.

I once lived in Pennsylvania for nearly seven years, right on the Allentown city line. During my time living there, I can easily state that Pennsylvania is a hot-bed for music. From the annual Berks Jazz Fest in Reading to Musikfest in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, with many bustling music clubs in-between, music is an essential part of social gathering in The Keystone State.

With the likes of Hall & Oates, Halestorm, Cinderella, Sinister Realm, Motionless In White, Candlelight Red and Poison originating from Pennsylvania, it doesn’t surprise me at all that such a talented band as From Ashes To New call this great state home as well.

From Ashes To New blend their styles of Rap and Alternative Metal together in a seamless fashion, with all four songs on their new EP: Downfall. These songs are filled with more hooks than a pro fisherman’s tackle box and flow with each other like a fresh mountain stream. Seriously, From Ashes To New have taken their own musical canvas and painted their own art upon it; there is very much originality here to be heard and embraced. Where some bands of this ilk can get downright annoying, From Ashes To New have sucked me into their melodious vacuum.

As the Rap Metal goes, I find it to be as cool of a listen as when Anthrax had done it many Metal moons ago. These are well written (both lyrically and musically) and thought-out songs on Downfall; while they’re also minus any lullaby moments too. The numerous spurts of heaviness throughout this EP makes it all the more enjoyable for me; plus I truly dig the vocals and chorus that From Ashes To New perform so very well. It appears that Lancaster, PA has exported a talent that I could not resist boasting about and I wish nothing short of the very best for From Ashes To New. Metal be thy name. – Stone.

May 27, 2015, SAN FRANCISCO – Faith No More’s Sol Invictus, the Bay Area band’s first new album in eighteen years, has landed atop international charts with the ten-track release at #2 in Australia, #4 in Germany, #6 in the UK and #6 in the United States (#14 on Billboard’s Top 200).

“What this tells me,” said Faith No More founder and bass player Bill Gould, “is that there is a need out there; people want to hear things that exist outside the mold. It makes me feel grateful and it gives me hope.”

“We are honored to be a part of the FNM team and very proud of the success of Sol Invictus,” added Greg Werckman, co-owner of Ipecac Recordings. “Of course, none of this would have happened without the band delivering such a fantastic record and them having faith in us to handle it properly.” The album was released as a joint partnership between the Faith No More’s own Reclamation Recordings and Ipecac.

In the United States the album also debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hard Music and Independent Album charts as well as #2 on both the Rock and Alternative Album charts.
