This is the debut LP from OLD GHOSTS, a hardcore band from buffalo, NY containing 3 former members of DEAD HEARTS and it shows; with passionately screamed vocals, hard breakdowns and sublime melodies.  “Caskets” covers a lot of ground.  If you like DEAD HEARTS “Bitter Verses”, the territory will be familiar however; OLD GHOSTS isn’t just more of the same, with a sound that is darker and harder with lyrics that range from deeply personal to the concepts of god and faith.  “Caskets” is a lp larger than the sum of its parts; creating an almost palpable aura of rage and despair and pulling the listener in with dark and haunting soundscapes.  In short, “Caskets” is amazingly powerful and well-played modern hardcore that picks up where DEAD HEARTS have left off.  For fans of UNBROKEN and THE SUICIDE FILE.
