On October 10th, 2014, the Luxembourg/German band My Own Ghost releases their debut album “Love Kills” via Secret Entertainment. The songs by My Own Ghost can best be described as dynamic pop rock, with a throbbing groove laid out by Michael’s drums, Joe’s bass and two powerful guitars. The melodic, yet powerful female voice wraps the 13 songs into a softer shell. The album is furthermore marked by electronic influences, leading to an interesting mix. All the members of My Own Ghost contribute to the songwriting, creating thus a vast variety on “Love Kills” due to the musicians’ different backgrounds, ranging from pop to metal. Having taken in charge most of the recording and mixing on their own, My Own Ghost relied on Markus Teske from Bazement Studio in Germany, renowned for his quality work on albums of Vanden Plas, Symphony X, Spock’s Beard and Patrick Rondat, to record drums, execute an additional mix and to sign responsible for the mastering of the album.
My Own Ghost has been founded in 2013. Joining Fred Brever, Joe May and David Soppelsa in this ambitious project are vocalist Julie Rodesch (Providers, Seven Days On Fire) and German drummer Michael Stein, best known for his work with Red Circuit. In no time, the band hit the stages of Luxembourg and already had a stint in the UK, playing amongst others at the famous Dublin Castle in Camden Town. After their return to Luxembourg, the quintet opened for the likes of Ivy Quainoo and Isaac Roosevelt.
“Love Kills” is the outcome of countless hours devoted to songwriting and countless hours spent on the meticulous recording of the album, combined with the determined will and skills of five musicians, ready to go all the way. From the energetic opener “Crimson Ground” to the anthemic doublebass-driven “Intoxicated”, the songs on “Love Kills” take the listener on a journey from the electronic beats of “Beautiful Mistake” and “Broken Mirror” to the piano-driven rock of “Silence” and the first single “Crystal Ball”, via Cure-influenced danceable songs like “Lost” and “Bad Love”. After having penned a deal with Secret Entertainment from Finland, My Own Ghost will promote the album by touring through different European countries, starting with a planned tour through Germany in October 2014 with a show at Berlin’s Sage Club already confirmed at this stage.
