ghostToday we are doing a double shot of Single Of The Week’s and here is your very first one for today. It is no secret that Ghost is clearly one of my favorite bands on the scene right now even though it may not be for some (e.g. Kerry King), but that won’t deter me from enjoying new music from the band. Four days ago, the band and Papa Emeritus III unveiled another single from their upcoming third record Meliora called From The Pinnacle To The Pit and the song kicks plenty of ass. The song starts off with a killer bass riff and the bass drives the song all the way through. Papa Emeritus III delivers vocally while the rest of the Nameless Ghouls deliver their best as they were influenced by Zeppelin on this track about the downfall of Satan. A Nameless Ghoul describes the song and album saying, “We always have had a craving for a truly stomping riff-­based song, Led Zeppelin style. Something that would sound great coming out of a car stereo standing at an American high school parking lot. The whole album was written and intended to be very futuristic, very metropolitan and urban. Basically just opposed from the classic goth thing, which is more suburban and rural and more being lush with overgrown cemeteries, spiderwebs… all of that. We were trying to take this thing to a very clean, indoors, 67th floor in a very high building in a very big city. Those were the pictures we hung on the walls in our mind in order to know where we were going.” Check out the track below and look out for Meliora which comes out August 21ST via Loma Vista.
