Ghostfather – Now
Boarding (2011) – Review UPDATED by Logan Lee
GHOSTFATHER is a heavy metal/hardrockact
created in 2010 by keyboardist Fred Colombo (Spheric Universe Experience) and
guitarist Olwe (Artefact). This information I’ve taken from their official
Personally, I knew those guys from
Spheric Universe Experience would start, sooner or later, new projects. I have
listened carefully to all 3 tracks available (listed below) and I must say that
now I am very curious to hear more from their project Now Boarding. You may
capture several influences on this project, from hard rock to pure prog
moments, and that’s not something to be surprised if you look at their
background (personally, I find Spheric Universe Experience a very interesting
band and I believe that France has been very generous with the prog scenario
It did surprise me the ability of
the other members of the band: Soda Runk (vocals); Ranko (drums); Alexis (Bass)
and Vince Benaim (guitar). Vocalist Soda has a very particular voice and way to
approach the music which gives the tracks an extra strength.
While we are waiting for more, I’ll will leave my opinion based on
these 3 great tracks, which is a full 8,5. Now go here http://www.perfectprog.net/profile/GHOSTFATHER
Update on may 30th :
Finally I got the chance to hear the
rest of this brand new project and the other 8 tracks are as good as the
previously released tracks. It is very hard though for those who are not
keyboard lovers (like I am) to fully immerse on the hearing session but if you
give a try you may get surprised. Once you passed this barrier (even if I think
it’s amazing) you might face that these guys are serious about their sound and
have a great prospective ahead of them.
I found the entire album very
entertaining, which good melody and arrangements, and I surely hope to see them
live (since we are almost neighbors) to see if they can maintain such sound
quality on stage (which is for me the true expression of a band).
If this is the first time you are
hearing Ghostfather, go slow and enjoy these tracks separately since another
great feature is the composition complexity of Now Boarding, but once this
first time is over, try listening it in a row to enjoy all the prog influences
they put in this first album.
The vote remains the same (8,5) but
now I am not left with an impression that Ghost Father has everything to go on
but with a certainty of that. It is a band to keep two eyes on.
