Fusing their unique brand of black metal which encompasses low, moaning vocals coupled with shrieks, Ghost Kommando are a band to listen to. A must listen. A 10/10 listening experience. Plenty of adequately tasty riffs to satisfy any true metal fan on this Earth. Their earlier stuff had more of a focus on black metal vocals, but their new stuff does not. More suited towards traditional metal fans.

I could inadequately describe more about them, but I don't want to anymore:

Thanks man that was hilarious.

I'm kind of sad after listening to this though. I don't think I'll ever make anything as unintentionally rib-splitting as this song
Vinland, Vinland Über Alles

Word. This band is truly one of the coolest bands going right now. As if the great vampyre himself played heavy metal.

The vocalist kinda reminds me of Dagon from Inquisition with the harshness stripped out of the vocals. Which is fitting, because the music reminds me of Inquisition mixed with Varathron.

This is really interesting stuff.

Heads up for this recent split-release:



White Medal/Ghost Kommando - "Split" 7"

The long awaited debut to vinyl by Switzerland's obscure Ghost Kommando! Kommandant Karnov & Reverend Void, with their track "Falkenstein", add more of a Black Metal layer to their own unique brand of raw underground metal destruction. Darkthrone meets Joy Division in an ancient Swiss castle. Yorkshire one man band White Medal takes a more experimental route and incorporates the Raw Heathen Black Metal it is known for alongside punkier and more aggressive freeform rock elements with bestial as well as somewhat choral vocals. Lyrics detailing the bloody conversion of ancient Northumbrian folk from their native Pagan beliefs to Christianity and subsequently back again following the death of a Christian ruler. Limited to 250 copies on black vinyl with artwork by Ghost Kommando in their classic Death Fiend style. A unique release in the underground and quite possibly the first split between a Swiss and UK band?

Note: Higher price due to unforseen pressing plant price increases as well as higher printing costs... Apologies.

The vocals might take a bit of getting used to, but it strangely fits - its like the opposite of King Diamond vocals in a sense - mysterious, evil but low pitch :P

What a fascinating insight.
Quote by ChemicalFire
The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

That White Medal/Ghost Kommando split is a mandatory purchase you fukks
A heathen, conceivably
but not,

I hope,
I’m not ashamed to be white
Vi doede ikke... vi har aldri levd
Barbarism is the natural state of mankind
Civilization is unnatural

It is a whim of circumstance
an unenlightened one

That's a bingo. See? You should all listen to me more. Don't succumb to dumb threads like "Pantera recommendation 420 thread," nay I say to you fellas.

Take the ways of the old, the vampiric thrash onslaught that is Ghost Kommando.

Yeah and you learned your lesson for that particular scenario. If you don't want to learn another lesson, I suggest an, "audial assault" - Riffmast, from the fellas in Ghost Kommando.

Posting again to just say that once you get used to the cleaner vocals and more upbeat riffage, Ghost Kommando reveals itself for the killer band it is.

Hot damn
