on "Haunting Remains" it's a great album. Are you
satisfied with it?
Pete - Thank you : ) yes I am very happy with the debut
the story behind Ghost Machinery?
had a few songs, that didn't fit Burning Point, but I thought,
that they were too good to be missed and I wanted to record them.
I contacted couple of my friends (Jussi and Tapsa) and asked them,
if they would be interested to help me out to record the songs and
they were : ) In the end the 5 track (“Ghosts In The Castle”)
cd sounded so cool, that I wanted to start hunting a record deal
and here we are…
would you describe your music for an outsider?
melodic heavy metal!
there any plans for a Ghost Machinery tour?
are doing shows here in Finland in the Spring, but at this point
not any gigs outside Finland…. We'll see what the future brings
which band(s) would you like to tour, if you had the choice?
Pete - It really doesn't matter to me, but maybe something
from the same “genre".
do you see the biggest difference between Ghost Machinery and
think, that Ghost Machinery brings forward more of my AOR
influences and always will be more keyboard oriented, than Burning
Point. Burning Point has a more “aggressive” sound, but it is
definitively not “pop” metal, that we play with Ghost
Machinery : )
though you play in a pretty much populated genre, you still manage
to sound like, well, Ghost Machinery. Where do you see your
Pete - I pick something from the 80`s and something from
the modern heavy metal and mixed it up. That is the recipe.
the music of Ghost Machinery was an emotion, which one would it
happines, sadness and joy, all in one : )
is your favorite song of "Haunting Remains", and why?
Oh no, I really can't answer this one, heh. I love them all!
we expect a follow-up to "Haunting Remains"?
Pete - Yes, I have almost written the second album already
and I think, that we're going to the studio sometime in the
album would you wish were yours?
metal album, that has sell like millions and millions of copies :
is your opinion of hard rock and metal at the moment? Do you see
any future for it?
are lots of great metal bands rising and I think, that the metal
music is never going to die!
internet is a very important source for many metal fans – how do
you use the internet and how important is it for you and other new
brought us metal bands to a much wider audience and I think it is
very important thing. It is much easier for the fans to get
contact with the band etc. But
of course there are those people, who download all the music from
the net and don't buy the cd's : (
Not a good thing….
do you listen to at home?
am a huge cd “junkie” and maybe you can call me a some kind of
collector too, so the list would be endless : )
Firewind, Silent Force and the new Masterplan cd are the
recent ones I purchased.
would you do, if you weren't able to compose music?
haven't thought about it….
wonder, if you might make a all-time albums Top 5 to finish things
from Yngwie Malmsteen
from Judas Priest
from At Vance
from Gamma Ray
Heh, I'm very sorry, but I'm not good at making these “top “
lists… : )

all the best in the future. /Peter, Powermetal.dk
