It’s been an exciting time for Swedish metal band, Ghost (also known as Ghost B.C. here in the states). On May 30th they announced the title of their next studio album. This is their third album and is entitled ‘Meliora‘. It will be released on August 21st.
But, as is tradition with the band, with a new album comes a new lead singer, known as Papa Emeritus. With the release of Meliora, we’ll see the rise of Papa Emeritus III and the departure of Papa Emeritus II. And not only will there be a new Papa Emeritus, but it sounds like the Nameless Ghouls, the band’s anonymous instrumentalists, will be receiving new masks as well.
With this announcement, the band also released one of the songs from the upcoming album. You can listen to ‘Cirice‘ below, and download it at the official Ghost website for the simple price of your soul or your email address.
