Season of Ghosts is the brainchild of Greek female singer Sophia Aslanidou. It is a very unusual offering to say the least. It is a breath of fresh air in a world of what can be very similar bands and genres, so much so it is very difficult to put in a category. We sway from orchestral, dance, hardcore, operatic and metal.
There are some outstanding tracks on here and I admire the vision but it may be to hectic and veering to the left and right to garner a following from hardcore metal fans. I know there is an audience out there for this type of music so if you like The prodigy, Skindred and Dead by April this could appeal to you.
I can definitely see this working in a live setting, breaking out the glow sticks and whistles but for me the dance parts were too dancy and there was not enough guitars, but do not let my old school, stuck in my ways, cannot think outside the metal genre effect your opinion. It is put together beautifully, the vocals are crisp, the musicianship is top notch and I did enjoy it but there was just something missing for me. Not enough evil to equal the good, too many organs and not enough guitars, not enough brutality to compensate the angelic voice and classical compositions.
