Ghost Avenue (formerly Ghost), is a Melodic/Traditional/Power Metal band out of Norway, and their self-titled release is the first under their new name.  Each of the 11 tracks on this album are well-thought out compositions and have catchy configurations.  Vocalist Kim Sandvik’s performance comes through as a cross between Biff Byford of Saxon and Meatloaf – he performs within his capabilities (and comes close sometimes), but doesn’t stretch it too far.  There are plenty of tasty guitar licks and solos by Oystein Wilk and Andre Berger to whet any Metalhead’s appetite, making Ghost Machine worth your time and a recommended “buy”.

    Dan is a former partner at Metal Express Radio, and also served as a reviewer, photographer and interviewer on occasions. Based out of Indianapolis, USA he was first turned on to Hard Rock music in the mid-1970s when he purchased Deep Purple's Machine Head as his first album. He was immediately enthralled with the powerful guitar sound and pronounced drumbeat, and had to get more! His collection quickly expanded to include as many of Heavy Rock bands of the time that he could get his hands on, such as Ted Nugent, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath, to name just a few.
