Genre/Influences: Gothic.

Format: Digital.

Background/Info: Set up in 1989, Ghosting became a successful formation of the German Goth scene in the 90s. After a long hibernation, the band resurrected and started to compose new music since 2020.This EP features four new songs, which were released by the end of 2021. 

Content: Ghosting brings us back to the essence of Gothic music; dark atmospheres accentuated by melodic organ sounds and captivating vocals. The songs feel like little, dark stories. It sounds pretty Ghosting-like with some extra sensibility, which sometimes reminds me to Sopor Aeternus.

+ + + : You don’t really get the feeling Ghosting took a break. This EP features a mature composition filled with delicacy and great sound treatments. The organ sounds reinforce the Gothic exposure. I also have to say a word about the great vocals’ production. Both debut songs are sonic pearls.

– – – : Both last songs sound more like the B-side of the work.

Conclusion: Ghosting is back and this EP is more than just a resurrection, but reveals a band with a creative spirit.

Best songs: “Pastures”, “There Are No Dreams – Epic Mix”.

Rate: 8.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
