HM is proud to premiere the new music video for “Ghost,” a new single from Italian-based alternative metal band Lifestream. The band, from Rome, worked with Trilathera, an Italian-based video production company, on the clip. Vocalist Matteo Zattini wrote in to HM to talk about the track:

“This song was a big step forward for us since our last EP, and it opened a new road to us. Now we’re ready to make it even better.”

Zattini is referring to a five-song self-titled EP the band released in August 2014, which you can download for free at that link. According to the band, the desire to play music was “born from the will of five good friends to make music together with the aim of communicate something strong and personal to everyone.”
