Ghost in the Machine

Ghost in the Machine

 Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA

Newest progressive/metal band out of the south. The sound will melt your face.


Ghost in the Machine was formed in December 2006 by Kevin Cheek (Drums) and Mike Huskey (bass, Vocals) out of the ashes of the Greenville based Hardcore Metal band Mind Cycle. The New project quickly grew to a three piece with the addition of Vocalist Chris Woodson and the band wrote and demo'ed several tunes with Mike H and Kevin playing all of the instruments. The music GITM writes is basically Heavy Metal with melodic lead vocals and harmonies with a very progressive edge. After an exhaustive search, Mike Burket joined as Guitarist and the band immediately (literally) began recording their first Album with Mike B. learning the material as he recorded it. The album took 2 months to record and all seemed well. Unfortunately, luck was not on their side. GITM lost all of the recordings from the result of three (!!) hard drives crashing in a few days time. Not to be deterred the band started over in June of 2007 and after six brutal months of recording and playing shows nonstop the time has arrived. GITM released their debut in January of 2008 and is available at most independent retailers. The album includes the song “Undead Heart” which has gotten the band some notoriety in a relatively short time. The song has been played several times on 93.3 The Planet’s Upstate Unsigned and GITM receives regular airplay on ARFM radio in London England. The band is now in the planning stages of a small Summer Tour of the Southeast (Ga, SC, NC Virginia,Fla) and some shows in the northeast to be determined in the future.
