Formed in 2012 by guitarist Matthew Wicklund (God Forbid, HIMSA), drummer Van Williams (Nevermore) and vocalist/guitarist Adōn Fanion, Ghost Ship Octavius began writing what would become their critically acclaimed 2015 Self-Titled debut release. With foundations in Progressive Metal, GSO are forging a fresh pathway in the metal genre by exploring emotional and melodic writing firmly founded in technical playing and memorable hooks with a common theme of darkness, hope and ghostly imagery with chilling, arctic elements throughout. Their 2018 album Delirium sees GSO raising the bar in both technical ability and emotional depth and color and marks the beginning of a new Record Label partnership with Mighty Music.
“We are beyond pleased to announce joining forces with Mighty Music, bringing forth a new and exciting chapter for GSO Worldwide.” – Matthew Wicklund, Van Williams & Adōn Fanion.
“Ghost Ship Octavius is one of the most promising and professional artists I ever signed to Mighty Music. Their “Delerium” album is a 10/10 in my personal fanzine”, Michael H. Andersen, Mighty Music CEO.
“It is no exaggeration to restate that ‘Delirium’ has to be one of the strongest releases that 2018 has delivered to date. It is a truly excellent blend of heaviness, melody, theatrics and powerful bombast with enough complexity to give the record plenty of longevity. Ghost Ship Octavius deserve to be dining at the top table of heavy metal because ‘Delirium’ is a genuinely killer record. Check it out or miss out.” – Man of Much Metal
“From the beginning to the end you stay on the edge of your chair…A must for fans of Queensrÿche, Pain Of Salvation, Nevermore and Kamelot.” –Liselotte Hegt, Aardschok 90/100
