Biography

Jyväskylä, Finland (2005 – present)

Ghost Brigade is a five-piece metal band from Jyväskylä, Finland, formed in 2005. They have taken elements from , , , and into their music. Wille Naukkarinen (guitars): “In Ghost Brigade, selling albums is not what it’s about. It’s about the feeling I get when I write a new song, which I only get when I know the song is good enough. The metaphor for that is “the fire”. That explains the title of the album. We are guided by fire.” A quote on their website states (by date of the debut release) “there’s nothing above or below us, no written word wise enough, just notes that carry the silent fire.”

Their album “Guided by Fire”, released in September 2007, consists of dark, intelligent music that hasn’t given up the ghost on being a metal band. Their second album “Isolation Songs”, to be released in August 2009, continues in this line.

For their debut album, Aleksi Munter of Swallow the Sun played keyboards as a session member for the band. Fredrik Nordin of the stoner rock band Dozer also did guest backing vocals on a track for their debut album.

    I've found this band at the lowest point in my life. I just got dumped and abused by my ex gf's friends and some of them were my closest friends to me, and i lost them all. Just because she was blaming me for things that werent true, i am utterly depressed and devastated .. i truly loved her and among other more personal shit i want to truly die or run away.. i have nobody left.. but this band definitely brings me back to life in a way

    Dammit, "Departures" is killing me, what a voice, so melancholy... Always too soon. Always too late.

    regarding ghost brigade, I've never felt any lack of guitar soli. I'm sure they would rather be destructive for the atmosphere their music conveys. there's no "progression" needed, they are perfect as they are.

    no other metal album has been feeding the melancholic side of myself like "one with the storm" has been doing since its release. thank you, ghost brigade, you are helping me through tough times..
