New Single “Thrones” Posted By Ghost Bath, New Album Details Issued

Depressive black metal act Ghost Bath released a lyric video for the new song “Thrones.” The song will appear on the new album “Starmourner” coming April 21st via Nuclear Blast Records. Pre-orders can be made at this location.

Vocalist and mastermind Nameless, recently released the following statement regarding Starmourner’s musical direction: “‘Starmourner,’ the brand new album, takes these concepts to a higher level. It explores joy (instead of sorrow), the cosmos (instead of earth), and paradise (instead of purgatory.) But most importantly, it explores ecstasy -instead of tragedy- as its basic human emotion.”

With over 72 minutes of heavy, melodic, and dramatic black metal, it is Ghost Bath’s most ambitious undertaking yet. The album takes its listener on a journey in a variety of ways; Each track is accompanied by a beautifully crafted painting as well as a “parable” to read alongside. This allows the listener to explore not only the audio soundscapes, but a visual and imaginative experience through as they delve into the album.

“The stories, or parables, look into Jewish angelology and the hierarchy of angels as found in the bible and other religious texts,” says Nameless. Although the album has a definitive joyful and hopeful feel, it is still drenched in depression and sorry, as any true Ghost Bath record should be.”

Check out the album’s artwork and first single “Thrones” below:
