Things You May Have Missed: Ghost Brigade – Isolation Songs

I didn’t know these guys, but this is apparently Ghost Brigade’s sophomore release. And it is a good record. A really good isolationyearsrecord. I’d have to say that this is probably the best combination of the sort of post-hardcore theme that’s been building for a while in the underground and “modern rock” (of the sort that Katatonia has become). Actually, to give it to you quick, these guys pretty much sound like Katatonia and Cult of Luna’s savant lovechild. This record is solid as hell with great melodies, great atmosphere and they pull of that dirty sound that lots of bands (see: Atlas Moth, Solstafír, and many others) are doing these days, but combining it with good melodic metal moments and sort of sadboy rock. Isolation Songs is definitely fantastic, and could even be one of the year’s best.
