UNHOLY GHOST were formed in the aftermath of a great split in US extreme Metallers DIABOLIC. 3 members of DIABOLIC left and founded a band in the same vein named UNHOLY GHOST and this 3 track promo CD showcases what this band is capable of. Brutal Death Metal is pretty much all that is on offer here as I personally fail to see much Black Metal influence at all (aside from the odd Black Metal vocal scream). The three tracks are extremely well crafted with each showcasing memorable riffs and fantastic leads coupling with some fantastic vocals and hyperblasting drums.
Of the three tracks I would say that "Denunciation" would by my favourite as it showcases a blast beat frenzy of extremely high tempo brutal Death Metal. "Under Existence" is the slowest and possibly due to this sound the heaviest. The leads in this song work fantastically making it easily the most memorable and definitely the most accessible.
Definitely a band to watch. (Online May 20, 2003)
