Depressive black metal merchants GHOST BATH, are pleased to announce the release of Starmourner on April 21st via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
Starmourner 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.
Listen to first single from the album entitled “Thrones” here:
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 vocalist/ mastermind Nameless. “Although the album has a definitive joyful and hopeful feel, it is still drenched in depression and sorrow, as any true GHOST BATH record should be.”
Starmourner was recorded, mixed, mastered and produced by Josh Schroeder and features impressive cover artwork by Luciana Nedelea.
