Since the release of “Speak Up, You’re Not Alone”, Deception Of A Ghost has switched singers which makes “Life Right Now” their first album with vocalist Scott Cowan. And while they haven’t changed their style, things do sound a little better this time around.
Originality however still isn’t this band’s strongest characteristic. They still dabble with formulaic metalcore that we’ve all heard over and over again so that now we can see the breakdowns coming from a mile away.
The new singer is already a step in the right direction but Deception Of A Ghost still has a long way to go to truly stand out in a genre as stale as metalcore.
