Besides totally rocking, this band rides a fine line between super heavy and super melodic that really stands out. Plus, super solid vocals. Who needs guitars anyway?

Gritty, loud, unforgiving and uncompromising, GHASTLY SOUND formed around the foundation of childhood friends TJ Maynard (bass) and Ryan Lewis (drums), who began writing songs as a two-piece focused on guitarless volume worship and a love for party riffs.
The band's rolling, thunderous tones blended with a splash of groove attracted vocalist Tyler Gurwicz, whose presence provided equal amounts straightforward candor and raw power.
Worshipping at the altar of volume, GHASTLY SOUND's presence is as large as it is loud; sludgy bass riffs merge with spiraling time signatures and vocal hooks cut through the noise as burning screams interweave with dream-pop melodies. Drawing influence from contemporaries like Kylesa, Torche and Red Fang, as well as no wave pioneers from Helmet to Unsane, GHASTLY SOUND aims to remind listeners of an era when both bands and people lived authentically.

I sampled the Huntress just due to the name, I definitely won the musical lottery quick pick. What a amazing find, It has it all great lyrics and vocals, killer psychedelic sound and some doom elements tossed in for a bonus. Reminds me of Mastodon, Elder and a more psychedelic version of Khemmis. abnormal_listening_habits

You had me at Dale Crover. Being a big Melvins fan, I'm always interested in any projects their involved with. So I came for the Dale, but stayed for the beautiful music these two Mexico based musicians have created. It's heavy and calm at the same time. This is metal for chillin' or taking long walks in the woods. The Goon

I probably would've missed out on this had it not been for my subscription to magnetic eye records (you really should subscribe). This is for doom lovers, yes, but it's much more than the standard issue doom that often pushes casual listeners away. This album is emotional, heavy, and clear in its efforts to engage the listener and keep you hooked. Special shout out for the production which places the fantastic bass playing right where you can actually hear it. Highly recommended! Wxmaggot
