Changes in the crew

As previously reported, lead vocalist Taage Laiho isn't in the band anymore. His work can be heard on GM's second album Out For Blood and he also did a miniature tour with the band at the time of release. His signing out doesn't involve any drama, it was only due to schedule and distance problems. After seriously considering all the possibilities, the guys came up with a solution. The new lead vocalist for the band is Pete Ahonen, who is also the songwriter and guitarist in the band. This decision is natural because the band's debut Haunting Remains had Mr. Ahonen on the lead vocals as well. Bass player Sami Nyman made a decision to leave the band last winter. The guys did look for a new bassist among other things but the right kind of axeman wasn't found easily. Mr. Nyman managed to do a comeback after a band meeting this fall. He explains: "Sometimes life throws you around and you have to make a decision. That's only to find out later on that it was a big mistake. I'm lucky as hell to have such amazing band comrades, such as the guys in Ghost Machinery. Now's the time to concentrate on our third album." Their third album is titled Evil Undertow. Cover artwork looks amazingly good and the recordings are nearly done. After finishing a few guitar parts and solos and wrapping up the vocals it's a done deal. The release date is somewhere in the near future but it unfortunatelly won't be this year.

Finnish Ghost Machinery inked a deal with Limb Music.

Finnish melodic metal act, Ghost Machinery, signed a worldwide record deal with German record label Limb Music.

Ghost Machinery was formed in 2002 by Pete Ahonen, the singer & guitarist of another Finnish band Burning Point.

The debut album, Haunting Remains, was released in 2004 and it gained a lots of great reviews all over the world! Due to the unfortunate problems with their label back then the band decided it was best to leave the company.

As they continued to record the new songs, the idea to take the new singer to the band grew stronger.

Pete contacted his friend Taage (Laiho), ex-Altaria & Kilpi singer, and asked him to join the band. Pete says, "Taage is by far one of the great singers around and we’re very happy that he joined us and the fact that we have quite similar vocal style & range makes him very easy to sing the vocal melodies I’ve been written"

Also the new bassist, Sami, was a perfect fit to complete the new Ghost Machinery line-up. "Sami has great stage precence as well he is an awesome player and one of the key points is also his huge enthusiasm towards the music of Ghost Machinery", Pete stated.

After over 10 offers from the record labels around, they chose Limb Music.

The new, 2nd, album "Out for Blood" will be released in Autumn 2010.

Line-up:

Taage Laiho / Vocals (Kilpi & ex-Altaria)

Pete Ahonen / Guitars (Burning Point & Stargazery)

Mikko Myllylä / Guitars (King’s Ruin)

Sami Nyman / Bass

Jussi Ontero / Drums & Keyboards (Burning Point & King’s Ruin)

Basstracks are recorded, finally!

Hi folks!

This is the day that I can proudly tell you that all the bass tracks are done. It..s time for a little celebration at this point! Ghost Maestro Pete had enough patience to be the sound engineer for my playing, so thanks again, man!

There..s something going on with our lead singing, you..ll be the first to hear it from here. If everything goes as planned, 3 weeks from now and we have lead vocals recorded. Stay tuned...

-Sami




September 14, 2009

Hi everyone!

So, as you have read from here, I..m the new bass player with the guys. I..m very excited to have this honour to be the new 4-string axeman. As you might know, I recently quit with my old band The Kickstart Rockers because I got bored playing and singing cover rock. This is a great chance for me to be able to focus on playing bass only. Sometimes there might be a moment of screaming my lungs out as a backround vocalist ;)

The new record is nearly done and I must say, that all the new tracks are killer-songs! We..re going to record all the bass tracks this week, hopefully everything goes well. No doubt about it!

Stay tuned, stay heavy and most of all, stay tuned!

-Sami

ps. After today..s work at the studio, the first basstrack has been recorded! We were only about to put microphones in place and find the right sound but by accident Fortuneteller has a basstrack now ;)




September 13, 2009

I think it's time for a little update of whats going on

Just a few days ago we recruited a new bassplayer and his name is Sami Nyman.

Sami recently part ways with his former band The Kickstart Rockers which was/is a cover band playing rock classisc ranging from the Paint it black to the Breaking the law.

Sami will post a statement later...

He will start to record the bass next week and hopefully within a week the bass tracks are done. Drums done, keyboards done, rhythm guitars done, few solos done...So, few solos and the bass and it all waits for the singer to sing! Yeah the singer...who is the singer ? Well, we have to be a little cryptic for now because it's not a "done deal" yet, but we can assure that many of you will recognize the name from various bands.

Here are a few song titles: Mask of Madness, Blood from Stone, Lost in Time, Out for Blood, Guilty, Face of Evil, Name will Remain (in History), Fortune Teller..

That's for now, stay tuned for more!

-Ghost Machinery
