For the first time Ghost reveal details for the new album
In an interview for Metal Wani, a Nameless Ghoul revealed some new details about the Swedish heavy metal band’s fourth LP album, confirming that they’ll be hitting the studio this August to begin the recording process.
The Ghoul explains:
“The ideas for the new record will be ‘darker’ because it’s thematically set in a darker setting. Meliora was supposed to reflect some sort of utopia / dystopia of modern society, where this new one is gonna be a little bit more apocalyptic in a way, a little bit more back to medieval times.
The idea for this new album is to combine… So, where it’s a record drowned and surrounded and drenched in death, it’s going to be a record about survival,” he continues. “Constantly working with those sort of polar sort of elements is also a difference I guess between… If you find a black metal record that is about the plague and the death you will have only death, everything just is black and everything just ends black.”
“Obviously we do have melody and we do have songs that are not so heavy, so from my point of view, from where I’m sitting knowing of a little bit of material coming in, it’s going to be both,” he adds. “It’s gonna have everything from heavy crushing metal to big ballady anthems.”
Ghost released their latest LP Meliora in August 2015 and the EP Popestar in September 2016.
