Music: Stephan Lill / Lyrics: Andy Kuntz

I am the ghost inside your mind
I´m the phantom you´ve been seeking for years
So I´m here the evidence you´ve tried so hard to find
I´m the ghost inside your mind
I am your paranormal PSI
You´ve awaited a lifetime

I burn it all I burn it all down
I burn the world I burn it all down
The final storm lifts me up to fly
I´m the ghost inside your mind

I am the ghost inside your mind
Just a fiction that proves all your doctrine
Here I am your paradigm
A god-science consequence

I´m a piece of the jigsaw - to see the big picture

I burn it all I burn it all down
I burn the world I burn it all down
The sacred deer sacrificed to die
Somewhere deep inside your mind

I´m a spirit from out of nowhere
A dangerous odic force
Once invisible - I unfold myself
Take good care and ensure that you
Spark a forever glowing votive candlelight
Which is burning the nightflies

I burn it all I burn it all down
I burn the world I burn it all down
The final piece you assay to find
I´m the ghost inside your mind


Vanden Plas' ninth regular studio production, “The Ghost Xperiment – AwakenIng” is part one of a two part concept album, with the second album to be released in 2020. “The Ghost Xperiment – AwakenIng” continues to underscore the high artistic level of musicianship and lyrical creativity that the band have sustained for so long. Based on an actual documented paranormal experiment, the main character in the story, created by frontman Andy Kuntz, is Gideon Grace, a man who has to fight constantly for his life against the relentless shadows of the “House of Rain” as he wanders through France. Burdened with a heavy weight of sorrow following the agonizing death of his beloved Ivy, Gideon's pain is also his driving force in the war with his demons. He expands his knowledge with books he finds in the library of a German school of metaphysics. It is here that he reads about secret teachers and parapsychological experiments, which become an important foundation from which he can fight against the creatures of darkness. When it comes to the first showdown with said creatures, rather than finding peace, Gideon's battle tears open a hole deep into the abyss of Hell...

Musically, Vanden Plas once again offers a perfect combination of heavy and melodic, while the orchestral arrangements here are more in the background compared to the last studio album. At the same time, the quintet comes closer to its original roots, such as “The God Thing” or “Far Off Grace”: more progressive elements in the songs, similar to what one knows from those earlier releases. The six, mostly long, pieces achieve their impressive and fascinating effect through a very band-oriented arrangement, so that the clear and intensive urgency of the songs shines through naturally. The listener is captivated from the start, first by songs that each deserve to be called epic and second through the story told through the lyrics.

This recording is once again a product of the band's trusted collaborations with sound engineer Markus Teske at Bazement Studios.

“The Ghost Xperiment – AwakenIng” is the first part of a two part series, with “The Ghost Xperiment – IIlumination,” expected to appear in fall 2020.
