Swedish rockers Ghost have returned with news of a new album, Meliora, out on August 21st via Spinefarm Records. It’s a follow up to their much admired 2013 album INFESTISSUMAM, on which the band worked with producer Nick Rasulinecz, and the subsequent If you have Ghost covers ep, which the band worked on with none other than Dave Grohl.
Taken from the bands third sacred Psalm (as they refer to it), and the first to feature frontman Papa Emeritus III (after Papa Emeritus II hung up the reigns) comes Cirice. Opening with acoustic guitar lines, it has this impending menace about it. That it eventually breaks into this theatrical rock is maybe a little bit of a surprise (if you don’t know Ghost) but its this muscular and riff laden affair, despite being wrapped up in a memorable pop melody.
