Quantcast

By now it should be little secret to readers of this site that GHOST is one of my favorite current bands. After three fantastic albums and an EP, the band has just-announced that their POPESTAR EP will hit the streets this Friday, September 16, 2016. Consisting of four cover songs and one new original track, a new installment of "The Summoning" has been issued to serve as a preview of this week's release...

GHOST is doing what most bands can never do - they get better with each album. They spread their blackened wings and broaden their sonic horizons. They've become perhaps my favorite current band, their third album set for release this Friday, but streaming in full below. MELIORA is exactly what I'd hoped for and more - a breathtakingly majestic collection of songs layered with beauty and weight... and placing the sinister delight in plain sight. Crank MELIORA below, and get your pre-orders in now via Amazon.

Listen to the "Majesty" of GHOST...

Now this is a great way to kick-off a Friday! After getting repeated compliments online and off yesterday for my GHOST t-shirt, this day has begun with an email alerting me to the release of "Majesty" - the latest single to come forth from MELIORA, the third album by GHOST. There's some melodies and tone in here that make this one feel like a sonic sequel to "Cirice," and that's certainly not a bad thing. Papa Emeritus III and The Nameless Ghouls will release their new record on August 21st via Loma Vista Recordings.  Listen to "Majesty" below...

It's official: Papa Emeritus III has been crowned, and GHOST will release their third album, MELIORA on August 21st via Loma Vista Recordings. Sure, some call them "gimmicky," but I care not about that - they're probably my favorite current band right now, and I can't get enough. Check out their just-released new single, "From the Pinnacle to the Pit" below - and get it as an instant download with pre-orders of the new record on iTunes or Amazon. So groovy...

If you ever browse the off-the-mainpage "For Grownups" section of The Rock Father, you might've already seen me proclaim my allegiance for Sweden's GHOST (now known in the U.S. as "GHOST B.C." for "legal reasons) in recent months. They're hardly what I'd call "family friendly," which is why they'd normally not be featured right here on the mainpage... but we're in the midst of the Halloween season, and certain bands just fit right in. GHOST is one of them, and today they land at Day 6 on The Rock Father's 31 Days of Halloween 2013... not for their music, but for their hamburger. A spooky treat for Chicagoans to eat?
