Ghost Farmer is the latest track from Calgary-based experimental outfit Nok Novum. Purely instrumental, Ghost Farmer sees these Canadians draw on a range of diverse influences. From powerful technical metal to jazz-fusion, they blend it all together to create something that takes you from brutal metal to skillfully-performed jazz in the blink of an eye.

If you’re looking for something that is easy to digest and comes straight out of the modern metal production line, there are plenty of bands elsewhere who can provide that fix; however, if you’re looking for a band who create powerful, thought-provoking, challenging heavy music that doesn’t sit within any boundaries or pigeonholes, as is the case with “Ghost Farmer,” then Nok Novum are certainly worth a punt.

Run Time: 7:26

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
