Flowing beards and sweat dripping off the walls: two things that surely define Kansas-based trio The Midnight Ghost Train.

So how else could "Cold was the Ground" sound, if not like roaring amps, swamp-friendly sludge riffs, and feisty rawk`n`roll attitude nestled somewhere in between Weedeater and Red Fang?

"Cold was the Ground" - the third album by these Roadburn veterans - offers dark delta blues, Southern swagger and pure heaviness/ Today the band has released a video for the song "Gladstone," which can be seen below courtesy of The Obelisk. More...

Truckfighters And The Midnight Ghost Train In NOLA

Midnight Ghost Train Involved In Auto Accident

Blues Metallers The Midnight Ghost Train were involved in a vehicle accident while on tour in Europe. Singer and guitarist Steve Moss explained, "Today while driving in Germany, a guy decided to put his car in reverse and came speeding down the middle of a main road without looking and he slammed into us and totaled our car. What a headache this is." The Midnight Ghost Train's tour will not be cut short though. "Nothing will stop us from doing what we do." The band books their own tours and are constantly on the road either in the States or Europe. They will be touring through Germany and the Netherlands through October before touring America later this year.
