Ghost Posts New Webisode “The Visit” Online

Today, multi-Grammy-nominated Swedish rock band Ghost releases “Chapter 6: The Visit,” the latest video in the band’s narrative webisode series. In “Chapter 5: The Call,” Sister Imperator, who was recuperating from a horrible car crash, discussed the merits and failings of “The Omen” feature film franchise while on the phone with Papa Nihil. In “Chapter 6: The Visit,” the story continues. Check it out below.

Twenty-nineteen is already looking to be a stellar year for Ghost. Following the band’s critically-acclaimed Fall 2018 North American tour where the itinerary included the band’s first headline – and sold out – arena shows – the Los Angeles Forum and Montreal’s Place Bell – Ghost will take its “A Pale Tour Named Death” to Europe, launching on February 3 in Lyon, France. Frontman Cardinal Copia will take a short break for a quick trip to Los Angeles where he will attend The Grammys on February 10 as the band is nominated in two categories: Best Rock Album for Prequelle and Best Rock Song for “Rats,” the song that held the 2018 record for most weeks at #1 at Rock Radio, a total of eight. In 2016, Ghost took home its first Grammy for its song “Circe” as “Best Metal Performance.” This summer, Ghost will be Special Guest on all four legs of Metallica’s “Worldwired” European Stadium tour that starts May 1 in Lisbon, Portugal.

Born Of Osiris Premiere New Track “Analogs In A Cell”

Below you can take in a brand new track called “Analogs In A Cell” from Born Of Osiris‘ fifth studio album “The Simulation”, which will be released January 11th.

Says guitarist Lee McKinney of it:

“This specific song is such a fun little journey to look back on for me. I started writing it back in 2016 or 2017. It was one of the first songs I wrote for the new album after moving to Dallas [and] the song has seen a couple different forms over the past couple years. Regardless, I was sleeping in the studio we rented to track this album.

The guys would come in the morning and leave in the late afternoon, but I’d still be there the rest of the time. I used late nights as the time to track all of the instruments for it after we had drums. ‘Analogs In A Cell‘ became my fun little late night project. The best part about forgetting the guitar parts from the demo was rewriting them and making them better.

The demo guitars were very similar, but I tweaked all of the leads and made them more interesting. The entire ending was chugging. I was getting bored with it and I knew I could do better. I started replacing the chugs with notes, then bringing them up an octave, and eventually I ended up writing entirely new guitars for the end.

Then I matched the bass with the guitar. I absolutely love how that song ends now. The fact that it was all made brand new in the studio gave it a longer shelf life for me. Usually when we’re done tracking, I’m also done hearing the songs. I don’t want to listen to them. This song is different. I’m still enjoying hearing all the changes that were made and I can’t wait to see what everyone else thinks.

I think a cool element of this record is how different each song is. They are all very much Born Of Osiris, but they all have different vibes and bring different things to the table. ‘Analogs In A Cell‘ has a very live feel. I can’t wait to perform it. All the guitar parts are really shreddy but also fun to play. The guys wrote some amazing lyrics and vocals to the song. Beginning to end, this is one of my favorites on ‘The Simulation‘.”
