Sounding as if they were sent from a post-apocalyptic future, Ghostfeeder is the brainchild of the outfit’s vocalist, programmer and songwriter Derek Walborn. Pressing riffing guitars and get-up-and-dance bass lines through a filter of gritty synth leads and painstakingly calculated digital glitches, Walborn creates a sound that is as decidedly different as it is contagious. The end result is the sonic equivalent of dragging a lifetime of 8-bit video games and science fiction films across the sticky floor of your local rock music hall and then cleaning it up just enough to sneak past the bouncer at that dance club you’ve always wanted to get into.
“Although Rochester, New York, electro-rockers Ghostfeeder are all about blurring lines, these guys are pretty sharp. Ghostfeeder have firmly established their sonic territory by welding pop to rock with a white-hot electro-glitch blowtorch. The arresting result is a chemical wedding of big guitars; skittering, truncated beats; and a diverse array of synth textures, with singer/programmer/songwriter Derek Walborn’s lofty (and very human) voice soaring above the band’s digitally distressed foundation. Once you’ve assimilated the sound, be warned: resistance is futile! The Ghostfeeder virus has infected fans, venues, and bookers alike. As of late Ghostfeeder has performed with national artists like Powerman 5000 and Filter.” - Ryan Roullard, Presonus Artist Spotlight
