Born out of a passion to create dark and heavy rock music, Chasing Ghosts was formed by Lee Brueton. Influenced by bands such as Paradise Lost, Anathema, Moonspell and driven by a desire to give the UK rock scene some much needed fresh blood. In contrast to most bands within this genre, Chasing Ghosts have carved their own unique sound, with clean vocals and emotive lyrics that are there to be heard and not hidden, compliment and not dominate. Their songs evoke emotions of fear, sadness, loss and regret, entwined within each doom laden guitar riff.

Featuring the pounding yet technical drumming of Ethan Morter, innovative bass-playing of Ashley Rollings-Huffer, razor-sharp riffing and guitar leads of axemen Daniel Eveleigh and James O'Connor, and the equal parts soaring and brutal vocals of lead vocalist and founding member Louis Dunham, Raze are exhilarating, addictive and simultaneously as tight as a drum.
