Geoffe Hein & Frozen Ghost / Press

“Back with their 2007 CD release are Ohio`s metal men - Geoffe Hein & Frozen Ghost - with Eternal Sleep. The album features ten all new instrumental tracks, as well as four instrumental numbers ("D.M.K.", "Lost At Sea", "Feedback" and "Ghosts Among Us") from the 1999 Geoffe Hein self-titled demo, now re-recorded so that all fans can enjoy them. Hightlights include the opening ripper, "Freshly Salted Wound", the ballad "Anywhere But Here", the bloody "Course Of Action" and the furious "Two Empty Cups". Frozen Ghost (the band) consists of drummer James McWilliam, bassist Robert Holdway and rhythm guitarist Todd Ashley, all of whom subscribe to the take-no-prisoners approach to heavy musical excursions. ”

“Instrumentality is the 2003 CD release from Ohio`s Geoffe Hein & Frozen Ghost, which picks up where Hein`s previous CD "Frozen Ghost" left off. Slow, clean grooves such "Sunny Day, Rainy Life" and "Scar On My Soul" contrast with metallic rippers such as "Demon For Hire" and driving, razor-slashed burners such as "Spider-Huntress". While primarily instrumental heavy metal in style and substance (as was "Frozen Ghost"), Hein also delves into blues, rock and ballad tempo concepts, keeping the listener anticipating the band`s next move. Frozen Ghost (the band) consists of drummer J. Robert McWilliam and second guitarist Marty Ogle, both of whom subscribe to the take-no-prisoners approach to the heavy musical excursions found on Instrumentality. ”

“Ohio`s Geoffe Hein has released Frozen Ghost, a CD geared to prove the guitarist can rip in any genre. While primarily instrumental heavy metal in style and substance, Hein also touches blues, rock, ballads, surf and jazz at times - a musical meal that can all be ingested in a single sitting. If at times the music sound like it was recorded by a drunken thrasher in his underwear in the wee hours of the morning - great! - because two thirds of Frozen Ghost was recorded that way. Overall, Hein favors extremely fast playing (ala Kirk Hammett), with over-the-top shredding, crunchy rhythms and ripping, improvised solos. ”
