Mt Own Ghost are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of pop, gothic, indie rock and metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Love Kills" which will be released in October by Secret Entertainment.
A very dark and atmospheric sounding synth along with spoken word samples start off the album before going into more of a heavy and melodic gothic metal direction along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful and the melodic female vocals start becoming a huge part of the album.
The music the band plays sounds mainstream enough to be played on the radio and the synths that also bring in an 80's style industrial goth feeling to the music while the melodies bring in elements of alternative and indie rock and there are a good mixture of both power pop ballads and more harder tracks throughout the recording.
A good amount of melodic guitar leads and solos can be heard throughout the recording and as the album progresses elements of electronica and clean playing can be heard in certain sections of the recording and one of the later tracks also brings in a brief use of male vocals for a few seconds and at times you can hear elements of post rock in the bands musical style
My Own Ghost brings in a great amount of diversity with their musical style bringing in some heaviness from the more mainstream side of metal, the depressive atmosphere of goth and the catchy riffs of pop music along with a good dose of electronica and indie rock to create a sound of their own, the production sound s very professional while the lyrics cover dark, depressive and poetic themes.
In my opinion My Own Ghost are a very great sounding mixture of pop, goth, indie rock and metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Crimson Ground" "Crystal Ball" "Mute" and "Intoxicated". 8 out of 10.
