GHOST MACHINE, the new band featuring MOTOGRATER members Ivan (Ghost) (vocals) and Chris "Crispy" Binns (drums), will release their self-titled debut CD on July 26 via their own label imprint, Black Blood Records. The CD was engineered and co-produced by Pete Murray (LO-PRO).Regarding the band's musical direction, Ivan said in a press release, "This is the most positive musical experience I have ever been a part of. There is so much excitement about what we are creating. I can't wait for everyone else to hear this." While being influenced by sounds of NINE INCH NAILS, THE CURE, PINK FLOYD, ALICE IN CHAINS, TOOL and MINISTRY, GHOST MACHINE "has managed to paint its own portrait of an electronic emotionally rich landscape while still capturing the edge and raw energy that is heavy rock," according to the press release. Check out streaming audio of the songs "God Forbid", "Vegas Moon" and "What You Made Me UGLI" at MySpace.com/ghostmachine1.
