Chasing Ghosts - These Hollow Gods [Album Promo]
These Hollow Gods by Chasing Ghosts (CD, Feb-2018, Mighty Music (UK))
This band was formed by Lee Brueton and were influenced by bands such as Paradise, Lost, Moonspell, and, as a personal opinion, I can hear some London After Midnight, with its dark rock, moody yet clean and unhindered. They guys were brought together to produce honest and unrelenting rock music. Drums on this album were provided by Gary Fuller. A European tour is planned for to coincide with their album launch in Copenhagen and festival dates are to be announced soon. The title track was written about our role models, idiots and those we ultimately view as gods in family, religion, music and amongst celebrities. Those people we have devoted our lives to but have given nothing but false hope and disappointment back. The guitar riffs are sometimes almost haunting, the songs are lyrically very deep, dark and angry yet trying to get a message across and every element of this album, from the art work, production and mixing has been created by the band with no compromise.
In contrast to most bands they have carved their own unique sound, with clean vocals and emotive lyrics. Their songs evoke emotions of fear, sadness, loss and regret, entwined within each doom laden guitar riff, that engage and consume their listeners and live audiences alike. Their first EP release in featured the track 'Fallen From Grace', which was recorded by 'Enter Shikari' engineer Tim Morris and aired on over 90 radio stations worldwide. The band have played many prestigious venues and festivals in the UK and Europe, including 'Nocturne Fest' in Copenhagen. The festival coincided with the release of their album 'These Hollow Gods', where they shared the stage with established doom bands Abyssic ex-Dimmu Borgir and October Tide ex-Katatonia members.

ms soho black extract review
From the off, it is abundantly clear that Anathema is a major influence for Chasing Ghosts, as simple hooks overlap with melodic male vocals to form the melodies. The hooks are sometimes reused and usually matched at a higher pitch to the vocals, before going on to any guitar work performed, which adds to the Anathema or perhaps Paradise Lost feel of the album. The album does not cross into any of the heavier aspects of either of these bands but stays on the lighter end, which I think will appeal to the melodic alt-rock crowd of those interested in the likes of Evanescence in addition to those already mentioned. It's one of the first songs I pick out from my first listen through before I even look up any details on the album or band. It is certainly not a bad effort and if you view it more of a statement of intent, rather than this is who they are, then there is a good chance for Chasing Ghosts to go somewhere good.
Born out of a passion to create dark and heavy rock music, Chasing Ghosts was formed by Lee Brueton. Influenced by bands such as Paradise Lost, Anathema, Moonspell and driven by a desire to give the UK rock scene some much needed fresh blood. Their songs evoke emotions of fear, sadness, loss and regret, entwined within each doom laden guitar riff. A European tour is planned for early to coincide with their album launch in Copenhagen and festival dates to be announced soon. It is reflected in every aspect of our lives, through ego, obsession and self preservation. Every element of the album, from mix, production, photography to artwork, has been created by the band, without compromise. These songs are the result of years of blood, sweat, tears and broken strings.
