Bright Lights

By The Ghost Of A Thousand

After opening with some deceptively classy-sounding guitars, Brighton five-piece The Ghost of a Thousand pitch us into a hell of gnarled hardcore riffs, strewn with frontman Tom Lacey's tormented vocal shrapnel. Things get even nastier on the chorus, which is a brutal explosion of broken-glass guitars and a howl that Cradle of Filth frontman Dani Filth would be proud of.

Despite the extreme edges, a tight, underlying groove runs throughout this song, ensuring it doesn't just sound like noise, even when Lacey is screaming himself hoarse and the guitars are clawing desperately at one another.

The Ghost of a Thousand occupy the heavier end of the hardcore spectrum, alongside fellow Brits Gallows. One for those who hate any hint of melody in their hardcore.
