Tampa, FL (2003 – present)

UNHOLY GHOST was formed in Tampa, FL in January 2003 by former Diabolic members - drummer Aantar Coates, bassist/vocalist Paul Ouellette, guitarist Jerry Mortellaro, and Kelly McLauchlin, founder and guitarist of Pessimist.

In just a few weeks the band recorded and distributed a self-produced 3-song demo, quickly getting airplay on college radio in the US and favorable reviews from around the world. The recording also attracted the attention of Olympic/Century Media Records, who quickly signed the band.

UNHOLY GHOST immediately began playing live shows and secured slots at two major fests: “Metal Nation” and the Las Vegas Metalfest, further making a name for themselves as one of death metal’s most promising upcoming acts. More shows soon followed, including hi-profile shows with the allmighty Deicide and “Sun ‘n Steel”, the 1st Annual Florida Metalfest.

The band soon entered the well-known Diet Of Worms Studio to record their debut album, “Torrential Reign” with producer Juan “Punchy” Gonzalez (Morbid Angel, Diabolic) and emerged with a stellar result… 11 tracks of extreme metal featuring annihilating dual-guitar shredding and a flurry of maniacal blast-beat insanity, matched with an aggressive and devastating vocal assault.

A flood of positive reviews, interviews and radio airplay soon followed, establishing UNHOLY GHOST as leaders amongst the newest generation of bands in the Black/Death Metal underground.

UNHOLY GHOST debut full-length CD “Torrential Reign” is out now and available on Olympic/Century Media Records.

    Behemoth clone?? Are you fucking stupid? Behemoth released their overrated cheap Morbid Angel clone album known as "Demigod" after Unholy Ghost released their one and only album. I guess DismembeR and Morbid Angel were also copying Behemoth from the early 90s eh? Black Sabbath have been cloning Behemoth ever since they started... those bastards.
