Band of the Week: The Ghost Inside

The Ghost Inside, a hardcore band formed in Los Angeles, California, isn't a groundbreaking type of artist, but they are very good at what they do.  They form metal, with some elements of hardcore, mainly heavy breakdowns, and chanting choruses.

They released their latest album, "Returners," back in June, and it is a record I have been bumping on my Ipod ever since.  It has very heavy drums in guitars, with just enough melodic guitars to make it sound complete.  The website, www.thenewreview.net gave the album, 4.5 out of 5, calling the record "nearly perfect."  The record truly is a hardcore masterpiece, complete with awesome lyrics, surprisingly catchy choruses, and a great effort by the drummer.

The Ghost Inside is also touring with Bleeding Through(my personal favorite) and Terror.  They will also hit Australia with metalcore stalwarts Parkway Drive, and The Devil Wears Prada.  If you dig bands like Hatebreed, old school Bury Your Head, and the aforementioned Parkway Drive, then you will dig "The Ghost Inside."
