Admittedly, I was never a huge fan of industrial music. However, GITM offers more than your typical cookie cutter stylization. The band goes out on a limb to mix various styles while providing the right crunchy essences that is popular in the scene. More importantly, these guys can sing! While there are tracks which feature the more gravelly throated vocals, overall, there are a number of songs where they also utilize their harmonious vocals. GITM demonstrates that industrial music can be approachable and stylized without losing one iota of its edginess. - www.morbidoutlook.com/admin/radio/admin_radio.html


Some keyboards and electronics open this recording and then comes the vocals doing a melodic line before the rhythm section enters in a climatic mood. Ghost in the Machine is a combination of power and melody showing how well can this two elements be combined. the music is modern metal with many interesting and original ideas. The programmed drums and the use of keyboards give a mechanical feeling to the music that suits perfectly the mood of the songs, taking them close to an industrial mood. The vocals sound powerful and modern fitting really well the feeling of the music and adding more heaviness to the heaviest parts. The guitars are loud and extremely heavy here being the soul of the music.Here we have also multiple remixes of different tracks showing how you can transform a song with a remix adding elements and taking others (just check the different remixes of "Rodeo"). Pure experimentation with eleectronics and a lot of imagination.

Ghost In The Machine is a band from the United States that sent us their latest release which includes seventeen tracks. The basic songs are eight and all the others are bonus tracks which are remixes from the original songs. So you can think that we have a lot of stuff to hear on this album. Ghost In The Machine is a difficult situation, since they combine industrial with electronic music and with a lot of modern elements from the rock and metal music. When I heard the album for the first time I didn't like it at all, but while I listened to it again and again, I found some really interesting ideas and I discovered that their compositions are well worked even though they don’t have the traditional metal elements. I believe that only the openminded metal heads will understand the vision of Ghost In The Machine. In my opinion the band has a very good vision of their music and they did the best in order to have a very nice result. The fans of industrial music will adore Ghost In The Machine. - www.geocities.com/behind_the_veil2001/summer_frames.htm


THis album is definitely more electronic than "The REPO Sessiopns" with not that much emphasis on the heaviness of the music but more on the industrial feeling of the compositions. But don`t get me wrong....the guitars are really heavy too but used in a different way. There is a lot of experimentation here and I really like the way in which this guys generate a really dense atmosphere with the use of electronics and heavy guitars. The vocals sound processed and fitting the music perfectly. The electronics are the essential feature here, giving the unique sound that Ghost in the Machine has. There is experimentation here because this guys are constantly exploring new paths for their music adding different elements on each composition. Open minded people will surely like this release ! - www.musicextreme.com/index2.htm

Heavy guitars and distorted beats to create music that makes you confused. The album starts calm but after a minute electronic beats and industrial sounds overwhelm you. You can hear a good mixture of electro-goth, powerful (almost aggressive) industrial and electronic orientated music. - darklifezine.xodox.org


This entire disc is full of hard-edged, guitar driven, industrial dance music. Of course not every track is fit for the dance floor, but they're all full of a variety of types of music which make them all very interesting to listen to. Those that are ready for the dance floor are certainly written to move the entire floor. - www.gothicparadise.com


The Haunting Begins...
You can hear a good mixture of electro-goth, powerful (almost aggressive) industrial and electronical orientated music. When listening to their music you start thinking of bands such as Front Line assembly, Suture Seven and some work of Nine Inch Nails. Some good tracks on The Haunting Begins are Lies, Do You Believe?, Electric, Supergod, Big Gimmick and especially The Shepherd. - www.proservcenter.be/darkerthanthebat


Hard breaks spill like crude oil, a dark, lurching substance to make you wary. Angry dual vocals toast over the mix of beats, eerie synths, background bass lines and nasty riffs. - www.listen.com

When Frankenstein meets Darkwave, what results is contained in The Haunting Begins… If you are a fan of Dark Techno, Gothic, Industrial or just superior thumping music, you will love this CD from Milwaukee based Ghost In The Machine. - www.musiciansrealm.com

Bio

Ghost in the Machine is reborn!  The U.S. band that has fused Rock, Electronica, and Industrial into their own form of “Rocktronica” has now evolved an organic rock sound only GITM could deliver – a perfect blending of Electronic Hard Rock, Industrial, and Electronic Dance music. Its latest album, Broken from Binary, is truly the reinvention of Ghost in the Machine.

Released in 2015, Broken from Binary brings a new, modern, dark and edgy sound with pop appeal.  Featuring GITM's cover of Billy Joel's song "Pressure," the voice of Ghost in the Machine takes you on a journey through the dark side.  As an unseen ghost, you are witness to what happens inside the machine - love and hate, oppression and enlightenment woven into well-crafted songs with thundering grooves, heavy guitars and lush electronics. 

The duo of C4 and Face, both former members of late-‘80s metal band Hangman, formed GITM in 1995.  Wanting to create music that fused elements of different musical styles, the band name Ghost in the Machine was chosen, symbolizing the band’s music -- created in, and coming from, a seemingly lifeless and emotionless computer brought to life by the music.  It is that music that is the ghost in the machine. 

Acclaim for the band has grown steady over the years.  One year after the release of Ghost in the Machine, the band released its first full-length effort, The Haunting Begins, pushing GITM into prominence in charts at sites such as the former Mp3.com, former Garageband.com and SoundClick.com.  Next came The Repo Session in 2005, then The One Within in 2006, winning Best Industrial Album at the 2009 JPF Music Awards.  GITM songs have placed in international songwriting competitions.  In both 2012 and 2013, GITM was selected as one of Supercuts “Rock the Cut” Ambassador Artists, and two of their songs have been featured on Supercuts radio commercials and in-store programming.

GITM songs have been chosen for numerous network TV shows, including “Friends with Better Lives,” “The Mindy Project,” “Arrow,” “Miss USA,” “Raising Hope,” “Castle,” “Burn Notice,” “Fastlane,” “Greek,” and “Drive.”  Its songs have also been licensed for cable TV shows on nearly every major channel. Its songs can also be heard in feature films, such as “The Marine 4: Moving Target,” “Face for Sale,” “H2O Extreme,” “Frakenhood,” “Ace of Hearts,” “Souls of Strife,” “A Night at the Cat,” “Shred,” and “Shred II."  In addition, major corporations, from Verizon to Lockheed Martin to Mountain Dew have licensed GITM songs for commercial use.
