Ghost just released a video for their song “Cirice”, that will feature on their upcoming album “Meliora”. The album will be released August 23rd, 2015.
According to Metal Hammer, the famous Swedish occult rock band Ghost, are searching for a new vocalist. In a recent interview, one of their anonymous band members, a Nameless Ghoul, told Metal Hammer that Papa Emeritus II is ‘… a real asshole’, and that they are about to replace him. At the moment, nothing has been announced, but I would make a wild guess and say that the new vocalist might sound pretty close to his predecessors.
In an interview with Kaaos TV, a Nameless Ghoul also confirmed that their new album is in the works. They have demo songs ready, and will be recording it in the fall of 2014. According to the Nameless Ghoul, they will take it to a different step, like they did from the first album ‘Opus Eponymous’ to their second album ‘Infestissumam’, and even a bit further. We can’t wait!
It’s not a huge secret that Ghost is one of our favorite bands nowadays. Their gig in Bergen, Norway, is probably one of the best gigs we’ve ever been to.
They just released some live videoes recorded at Music Feeds Studio, where Papa Emeritus II performs “unmasked”, and without his significant pope outfit. Here are Ghost performing the Roky Erickson cover ‘If You Have Ghosts’:

2013 has been an amazing year for music of the darker forms. This year has delivered us some albums that will be running on repeat for a while, and even into the new year. You might ask what’s the best release of 2013, so we have enlisted 3 albums we think deserves som extra attention this year. Two of these, released by the bands Ghost and In Solitude, are actually both from Sweden. They both deliver rock/heavy metal with an occult vibe that will send shivers down your spine!
We also added Beastmilk (gotta love that bandname) from Finland to the list. They play, what they call, apocalyptic post-punk, a genre that we predict will mark 2014.
Ghost – Infestissumam
Ghost marked a new peak of success with the release of their sophomore album “Infestissumam”. Papa and The Nameless Ghouls has done it again, and has delivered us a darker, more epic, and mightier album than the debut.
Not even did they release one of the year’s best albums, but they also did some immense gigs and tours. So be sure to check out Ghost live as well, as these cloaked fellas surely deliver on stage as well!
Beastmilk – Climax
These Finnish apocalyptic post-punks released their debut album in December 2013, and made it into our list. Be sure to have an eye out for them! More about this release here.
We can’t wait for more news from the Beastmilk-camp. They are also a hot name on our list for bands we wanna see live in 2014.
In Solitude – Sister
This occult heavy metal band from Sweden does not seem to disappoint us. Definitely one of the highlights of 2013.
