Atmospheric black metal band, Ghost Bath, released their latest opus, Starmourner, yesterday, April 22nd. In celebration of its release, the band revealed their compelling new, Jesse Lynch (Dead in the Winter, Underling, Mithya)-produced visual accompaniment to “Seraphic.” Watch it right here on Yell!
Out now on Nuclear Blast Entertainment, the 12-track Starmourner was recorded, mixed, mastered, and produced by Josh Schroeder (Battlecross, Still Remains), and features cover artwork Luciana Nedelea (Enbilulugugal, Foehammer).
If you have or are currently listening to “Seraphic,” you might be wondering, “where’s the black metal?” What follows might explain things: Since their inception, Ghost Bath has played atmospheric black metal focused on depression, tragedy, purgatory, and earthly wonders. Starmourner — the second record of a trilogy — takes these concepts to a higher level. It explores joy instead of sorrow, paradise instead of purgatory, and the cosmos instead of earth. Most importantly however, 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.
Ghost Bath is currently scouring the lands on a North American spring headlining tour with support provided by Astronoid. See remaining dates below. The band’s latest trek follows their recent tour with Amigo The Devil.
