Well, everybody seems to talk about that other band called Ghost from Sweden, but these guys from Norway has delivered the first surprise of 2011. After one demo and one EP here we have their debut album The Engraving. I have really enjoyed myself with this album, especially when I was driving in my car. So I can’t wait ‘till the government makes the decision that we may drive faster on the highway over here! Melodic Hard Rock out of the premier league, and that from out of nowhere. Great songs, good playing by musicians who know what they are doing, because the first steps from Ghost where already in 2002.
So you might say they have taken their time to deliver their first album. I wish more bands would do that. The music is Melodic Hard Rock in the vein of bands like Dokken, House Of Lords, Tyketto, Accept and other great heroes from the past. Yes, I know Accept is still kicking ass, but also these ‘Ghost’ guys can kick some serious ass with their up-tempo melodic Hard Rock. Great songs and listening tips for you, my dear readers, are The Engraving[/i, [i]AWAT, Taking Lives and my favorite song Surgery.

If you like the bands mentioned above and you are into Melodic Hard Rock this is a must have album. Just listen to the great vocals from Kim Sandvik and if you also knew that the middle name from Petter Lein is CRISS, I don’t think I have to tell you anymore.
Great band, Great album!

In the meanwhile when they are making their 2nd album you might check them out on their myspace page: www.myspace.com/ghostrocks .
