Midnight Ghost

Album Type:
Release Date:
28th September 2018
Record Label:
AFM Records
Total Tracks:

Are it eleven or twelve albums this German power metal band already released? One thing is for sure, they always deliver a certain quality. Andy B. Franck. has been the singer since their third album Ambiguity. He is the recognizable beacon in the band and has the almost perfect power metal voice.

My personal favorite album is Soul Temptation, but like I already said, there isn’t a weak album. Actually only the bass player is new in the line-up compared with their Soul Temptation album. Midnight Ghost has the normal ingredients for a Brainstorm album. The opener is heavy and fast with a very nice melody and refrain. After that mid-tempo and faster songs vary eachother. Sometimes a song has a very soft start but gets heavier near the end. The only softer song, you can name it a ballad if you like is ‘The Path’. With that said, I have to conclude that this is one of the heavier and faster albums of the band.

The excellent production and heavy sounding guitars also see to that. Power metal fans and Brainstorm fans will be pleased with this release.

Once a metal head, always a metalhead. My parents thought it would only be a period, but they were wrong. I quit to explain the beauty of metal music to others that are not into metal, because it is something you can't tell in words... It is like explaining to a teetotaller why a cold beer is so nice on a hot day... I started with bands like Accept, Metal Church, Iron Maiden and Metallica in the eighties and I think I will still listen to them when I'm stone deaf and old...
