With a name like Ghosts of Modern Man, you might expect these guys to be some sort of atmospheric, post-rocky soundscapists.

Well, don't be fooled; these Regina emo-punks formerly known as Pillar are full-bodied rockers with blood coursing through their veins and hearts worn proudly on their sleeves. And on this full-length, they're almost scary good.

Their searing blend of churning guitar, bristling impatience, tense dynamics, lyrical angst and anguished vocals ensures they'll please the punk purists.

But rather than just haunting the same old ghetto, they expand their horizons by being unafraid of sweet harmonies, pretty melodies and the odd earnest ballad.

With that approach, they could be the Ghosts of Punk's Future.
