Atmospheric black metal merchants Ghost Bath announce the release of their new album entitled Starmourner on 21st April via Nuclear Blast Records. Ghost Bath writes and creates under the assumption that music is an extension of one's own soul.
Since their inception, Ghost Bath has played atmospheric black metal focused on depression, tragedy, purgatory, and earthly wonders. Starmourner 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.
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 (Battlecross, Still Remains) and features cover artwork by Luciana Nedelea (Enbilulugugal, Foehammer). One of the tracks, "Thrones", is available for streaming and you can hear it in the player below. Link
