  • Artist / Band: The Midnight Ghost Train

With open guitar notes like the click-clack of a southbound freighter, the Midnight Ghost Train erupts into each of its Delta blues-metal epics with a relentless single-mindedness: hard, fast and loud.

Born out of every young one's deep-rooted desire to wail on an instrument and the enshrining of a late friend's life, the band has racked up a reputation for constant touring and excellent stoner-metal over the course of two studio releases, and with a revolving cast. Putting live shows first, the act translated the sound by recording its latest effort, "Buffalo," live in the studio.

Showcasing the release, which garnered them a "Best of 2012" nod from music blog Heavy Planet, the trio performed four tracks live in the Magnolia Avenue studios of 88.1 KDHX. "A Passing Moment of Madness" kicks off the head banging with a simply unyielding rhythm section before "Henry" shows off the Dave Grohl-as-devil-inspired, if not usurped, vocals. The guys channel a sexier, sludgier Mastodon sound throughout "Foxhole." "Southern Belle" provides the encapsulating snapshot, with Moss sliding sordid details and expansive guitar solos to listeners already breaking their own necks with the crashing drums.
