That title might make no sense whatsoever, but the noise This Year’s Ghost make on their debut EP couldn’t be any simpler. ‘Yesterday Becomes Tomorrow Today’ is five slices of massive hard rock that isn’t exactly complicated but is enjoyable nonetheless.
They don’t hit the same heights as their influences just yet, but it’s clear that the potential to is definitely in there. They’re like a sort of embryonic Alter Bridge – they can both soar and shred when they want, as on the likes of ‘Carry Us In Blue’ or the chugging ‘Silver Tongue’, though just not as hard as Myles Kennedy and co.
This being a debut though, that’s to be expected. And besides, This Year’s Ghost still have plenty to go on, even managing to rope in The Defiled’s Stitch D for a verse on the towering December Sun.
It’s impressive stuff, and even a couple of lacklustre moments can’t really ruin ‘Yesterday Becomes Tomorrow Today’. It should definitely pave the way for bigger things if nothing else.
‘Yesterday Becomes Tomorrow Today’ by This Year’s Ghost is released on 20th November.
