Gost has recently signed to Metal Blade Records and announced the release of their new album Prophecy on March 8, 2024. The band, known for its unique blend of black metal and dark electronic music, has unveiled a video for “Judgment/Prophecy.” The album, recorded in Texas, marks a return to Gost’s roots and explores the grim anxieties of a world facing political and religious challenges. 


The project’s mastermind James Lollar comments:

“It’s about an imaginative fall of the Western civilization, the biblical end of the world – the rise of Satan and Armageddon. In America, there’s been a big rise of scared, reactive Christianity again, and almost like a re-emergence of the Satanic Panic. So it felt like an appropriate time to bring Satan back into things. When Valediction came out, COVID hit, and I guess people weren’t so into art while the world was on its knees. I also wanted to reconnect with some of my older fans who maybe didn’t feel that album so much. I wanted to go back in time and bring some of the older shit back, some of the older sounds. With ‘Prophecy,’ I wanted to revisit some of the sounds of ‘Possessor.’ Rather than simply replicate those sounds I expanded upon them. I pushed the saturation and compression to their literal limits, resulting in some of the heaviest sounds I have yet to produce. I wanted to combine some classic EBM elements with my digital metal sound as well. This EBM influence can be heard throughout ‘Prophecy.’ Horror has been a huge aspect of my sound since day one and that theme is ever present on ‘Prophecy,’ through ratcheting strings and dreadful choir lines. ‘Prophecy’ expounds on the slasherwave genre I originally created with ‘Behemoth.’”
