GHOST SHIP OCTAVIUS is a new progressive metal band formed in 2012 by lead guitarist Matt Wicklund (God Forbid, HIMSA, Warrel Dane), drummer Van Williams (Nevermore, Ashes of Ares, Pure Sweet Hell) and vocalist Adōn Fanion. The band’s sound features technical and groove metal elements, highlighted by Adōn’s powerful clean vocals, Van’s tasteful rhythms and Matt’s melodic and intricate guitar solos. Take a listen to the band’s new track ‘Alive’ via lyric video here:

GHOST SHIP OCTAVIUS have finished writing their currently untitled upcoming full-length album and have since teamed up with Grammy-winning and multi-platinum selling producer Neil Kernon (Nevermore, Queensryche, Cannibal Corpse, Hall & Oates, Nile).


In order to get this project off to a great start, GHOST SHIP OCTAVIUS is reaching out to fans to help fund the album by use of popular crowd-funding site KickStarter. The campaign has been launched and offers pre-sales of the album, merchandise and many other perks, including 1-on-1 Skype video lessons, guest performances on your band’s album, being drawn into the band’s album artwork, and more! Pledge here, but hurry, the pledging period ends in 30 days:
