RELEASE OF THE MONTH

Jesse Smith & The Holy Ghost

Birthed in the pit of Parkersburg, West Virginia in 2013, Jesse Smith & The Holy Ghost ascended from the simmering coals of seminal Christian metal-core masters, Zao.  While still preserving the intensity of the live performance and depth of lyrical storytelling of his prior project, Smith’s new signature vibe is more post-classical, alternative rock shaken and stirred with driving, heavy guitars then poured over a raw rhythm section which leads the band out of the darkness of the metal underground and into the light of mainstream radio.
