This Friday, August 21st, Ghost’s third album, Meliora, will be released. The first album with new singer (*wink*) Papa Emeritus III, has been described as more like their first album, Opus Eponymous. than 2013’s Infestissumam. The first group of songs out there, “Cirice,” “From the Pinnacle to the Pit” and “Majesty” bear that out. They’re definitely riff-oriented than the last album. Now you can listen to the whole record. It’s streaming on their website, where you can also preorder the album. We’ll give you a more detailed breakdown and review of the album later this week, but give it a listen.
Meliora will be released on August 21 on Loma Vista Records. Starting tomorrow, they’ll be on an unplugged tour in support of the album. Here’s where you’ll be able to catch it:
