Shadow Kindgom Records To Reissue CORSAIR’s “Ghosts of Proxima Centauri”

| 15 February 2013 | Reply


On April 30th, Shadow Kingdom Records will re-issue Ghosts of Proxima Centauri from prog rock/metal act CORSAIR.

Ghosts of Proxima Centauri, originally released in early 2011, is the second independent effort CORSAIR created before being signing with Shadow Kingdom Records.  A sonic precursor to the band’s self-titled album (released earlier this year by Shadow Kingdom Records) Ghosts of Proxima Centauri is telling of where CORSAIR was right before they created their masterpiece.  All the elements of a great album are here, but since this is an EP, it certainly leaves you wanting more. It’s a little more laid back than the self-titled, more progressive, but it definitely has the foundation of a very special band.  There are some classic songs not to be missed on this EP.  A band’s early years are usually their best years for creative writing and execution and this is absolutely essential and classic CORSAIR.

Ghosts of Proxima Centauri is streaming in full at Check the newly re-vamped Shadow Kingdom Records Webstore to order this release on CD.

Visit CORSAIR on FacebookReverbNation or at for more.

“The Ghosts of Proxima Centauri are plenty haunting, and one gets the sense that Corsair have the means to make the most of their growth in the time to come. Hope to catch them at Beta Centauri or coming to a star system near you.”

“At the intersection of Clutch, Thin Lizzy and Hawkwind lies Corsair, with their beautifully vintage guitar tones, emphasis on often-harmonized leads and solos, drifting and yet energetic prog-jam tendencies, and hints of hazy psychedelia.” – Last Rites

“Ghosts of Proxima Centauri is unique work I can’t recommend highly enough – I mean, Slough Feg, Falcon AND ELO?? Get outta here! Great, unique sound, ‘Adventure Rock’ supreme!!” – Hellride Music

Born out of the hot embers of Charlottesville, VA’s Black Sabbath annual tribute band, Mass Sabbath, Corsair formed in early 2008 with the purpose of writing progressive rock that would transcend space and time. Having endured the intensive training of of Mass Sabbath and most recently, Spinal Tap, Corsair has emerged with calloused fingers and a united, unbending will to unleash new found guitharmony powers onto the world of rock. Think Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden and King Crimson.
