The Ghost Next Door

The Ghost Next Door was founded by Bay Area guitarist Gary Wendt (as the story goes, he found out he lived next door to a haunted house, which gave him the inspiration for the band name). Wendt cut his teeth with thrash acts such as Sacrilege B.C. and Skinlab, but this outfit goes in a quite different direction, bringing alternative, garage doom, and slight grunge influences to the fore, resulting in a more somber, introspective feel, yet with plenty of raw power punctuated by Wendt's powerful and emotive vocals. The diverse influences here put this band slightly off the beaten path, which is never a bad thing.
