THE GHOST INSIDE
Get What You Give
RIYL: STICK TO YOUR GUNS & TERROR
It’s no secret that THE GHOST INSIDE’s newest record, Get What You Give, was, has been and will be a hot topic. Once it was revealed Jeremy McKinnon of A DAY TO REMEMBER fame was to be involved the rumors were off the charts. With the release of the mighty track ‘Engine 45′, the shit talking commenced. “They sold out.” “I knew Jeremy would make them do cleans.” “I hated Returners.” All of these things are from the mouths of babies as they obviously don’t listen to real music and only ‘like’ a band when it’s cool to. While hearing the clean vocals was a shock, and to find out it’s Mr. Vigil killing these cleans, it’s no surprise. Their band brothers in STICK TO YOUR GUNS are still hard and credible and they have employed cleans for a good while now and it’s not like Vigil hits thes insane highs. These only add a new deeper level of realism and purity in his always poignant lyrics. Musically Get What You Give is the perfect combination of Fury And The Fallen Ones and Returners. They don’t stray far from what makes them THE GHOST INSIDE. Melody. Groove. Passion. They bleed and breathe hardcore and it shows in the music they play and perform. Nothing about Get What You Give screams sell out or even shows any sign of the band slowing down. What it does show is a band fully coming to grips with themselves and what they can do. To try and find anything wrong with this record, or to even attempt to choose a ‘favorite’ part is pretty pointless as it’s a damn near perfect record. This is obviously just one opinion and it shouldn’t be taken as gospel. THE GHOST INSIDE have quickly become one of hardcores heros. Get What You Give just further cements this fact. -by Jon Hole
