Anatomy Of A Ghost

Anatomy of a Ghost, originally from Wasilla, Alaska, moved to Portland, Oregon where they gained notoriety. The Ghost recorded a full-length CD titled “Evanesce” for release May 2003.
Anatomy Of A Ghost, while writing & recording creative progressive music, had developed a stage presence that is unparallel in the Pacific NW. Their shows began energetic and lively and had progressed into powerful, chaotic events that show goers talk about for days following the show. Their music is difficult to categorize: there are quiet moments of profound beauty amid the ferocious attack, elements of sugary pop buried beneath walls of guitar, and / that provides a roller coaster of sounds and emotions. The sound-track to a post-everything world. There is a washed-out chalk line between decay and beauty within their songs, both disturbing and comforting.
They have seen enormous global response from their pre-production demo tracks on 20,000 plays in 4 months has led to interviews with zines from Holland, Great Britain, and Germany.
Singer/lyricist John Gourley has crafted a lush, intelligent storyline that weaves a web of wounded alienation and inner turmoil throughout the songs. Every detail is noticed and all vulnerabilities exposed… a masterwork of inner dialogue. The rhythm section of drummer Nick Simon and bassist Zach Carothers provides the pulse for this musical landscape. They shift from an ugly, brute force to rolling grooves and back again before the listener has had a chance to catch a breath: an unsettling rhythm attack.

    Imagine if AoaG could combine its dynamic post-hardcore riffs with the pop sensibilities of P.tM. Or something.

    i am a big P.TM fan...i knew AoaG way before i knew of P.TM first i did not like AoaG, but after listening to P.TM and recently getting into post-hardcore, AoaG is sounding more interesting for me right now.

    P.TM is SOO much better. NO WAY man! Anatomy of a Ghost was so brootal!............This band's shoutbox is littered with the same irrelevant retarded argument. They were both good and are both very different. shut up and leave it at that.
