Ghosts of Jupiter
Black Sabbath’s Neighbors
The cosmic, bombastic, riff-heavy rock of Ghosts of Jupiter (GoJ) conjures freewheeling, hard rock of a bygone era. The quintet— Nate Wilson (lead vocals and keyboards), Johnny Trama (guitars), Adam Terrell (guitars), Tommy Lada (bass) and Thomas Arey (drums)—are an inherent part of the lineage of the New England improvisational scene of the ‘90s and the aughts. Wilson—who originally formed and helmed The Nate Wilson Group after splitting from Percy Hill—says the band took its time choosing a name so as not to choose a bunk moniker. “You know, one of those names where people keep constantly coming up with their own little clever plays-on-words,” Wilson says of a poor moniker decision. “But we came up with Ghosts of Jupiter—it’s also the title of one of our songs, which puts us right in there with Black Sabbath and Bad Company,” he says with a chuckle. When asked to describe the band’s sound, he struggles, saying that it’s always evolving and then concludes, “It’s definitely a bigger sound with two guitars now, but it also has the capability of being deeper—we can create a more intricate landscape. But it’s nice because everyone in this band can really play their ass off, so as a songwriter you’re never held back by anyone’s limitations.”
