Swedish neo-classic heavy occult metallers Ghost have made single ‘Majesty’ available for streaming from their upcoming release, Meliora, out August 21st on Lorna Vista Recordings. It marks the third single the band has uncovered, following the releases of ‘Cirice’ and ‘From The Pinnacle To The Pit’ earlier in the year.
Meliora is Ghost’s highly anticipated third album. Their previous works, 2010’s Opus Eponymous and 2013’s Infestissumam have been met with consistent critical praise from critics and fans across the board, culminating in a surge of global popularity.
The band’s identities remain unknown, preferring to don stage costumes that have changed numerous times, their most recent change occurring last June; frontman Papa Emeritus II (who took charge from Papa Emeritus I) was ‘replaced’ by Papa Emeritus III and the other members, known simply as Nameless Ghouls, followed suit with much more elaborate outfits than before.
Despite this, the band continues to make waves in the metal world with their distinctive Black Sabbath-meets-Blue Oyster Cult-meets-Deep Purple-meets-occult-lyricism.
