02:29 - Apothecary Yeah you have a point, that "only old school is real, modern bands suck" mentality is still pretty strong among parts of the metal community though, unfortunately
02:23 - Karlabos but then again most death/thrash/sympho fans are more into older bands and don't follow the new stuff very closely... amongst the new metals arising i still feel sludge is pretty strong
02:17 - Apothecary I still think sludge is far from "the next big trend" lol, that's grossly over-exaggerating its appeal to the average metalhead. More people are into thrash, death, and symphonic type shit before sludge, at least in my area
02:14 - Karlabos yeah, sludge seems to be quite the thing nowadays. still beats the power metal trend from when i was a kid tho
01:42 - Marcel Hubregtse BlackEssence is 100% right with his sludge comment. On average of every 20 albums I have to review each month at least 10 are sludge
After releasing their latest album Infestissumam back in 2013 as well as the covers EP If You Have Ghost, it's time for Ghost B.C. to work on new material again. The Swedish entity recently released an update confirming that they are preparing a new record that should come out next year. Let the anticipation begin...
Swedish act Ghost B.C. officially confirmed that they will be returning to North America this spring, headlining the "Tour Year Zero 2014". Supporting the band across the lands of North America will be special guest King Dude. Check out the complete list of tour dates and official tour flyer below.
Next week, the Swedes Ghost B.C. will release their new EP If You Have Ghost, which was produced by Dave Grohl (Queens Of The Stone Age, Foo Fighters) and is a covers EP. You can now listen to their take on Roky Erickson, ABBA, Army Of Lovers and Depeche Mode songs apart from the live rendition of their own "Secular Haze" from the latest Infestissumam. You can stream the entire release now through the Soundcloud widget below.
The Swedes Ghost B.C. are preparing the release of a covers EP called If You Have Ghost, which was produced by Dave Grohl, and will be available worldwide and in stores on November 19th, 2013 via Loma Vista Recordings. The title track "If You Have Ghosts" has already been released by the band for streaming and you can listen to it right here.
The burger of controversy... Swedish metallers Ghost B.C. have caused a bit of an uproar this time not with their music, videos or album covers but with a hamburger featured at a Chicago-based burger joint which names all of its specialty burgers after metal bands. The burger is considered sacrilegious.
The Swedish mysterious rockers Ghost B.C. are at it once again this time with a brand new video for the song "Monstrance Clock". The video was shot at the El Rey (LA) and Webster Hall (NYC) and directed by Rob Semmer. You can have an inside look at the moments before a show and the band in action. Enjoy the new video.
With only one week left, Swedish occulteers Ghost B.C. have given Pitchfork the honour to stream the band's upcoming album, Infestissumam, in its entirety. The album, due out April 16th, through Loma Vista Recordings, can be streamed here.
Swedish occult rockers Ghost B.C. face yet another controversy. The band had to change their name from Ghost to Ghost B.C. for legal reasons and now one piece of the Infestissumam deluxe version artwork was reportedly deemed too sacrilegious by some US manufacturers which have refused to print it thus delaying its release in North America. However, the original artwork can still be found on both the vinyl and European copies of the album. It seems like this will generate even more buzz around the release of the opus.
Swedish band Ghost B.C. have premiered another new video, this time for the track "Year Zero" of their forthcoming album Infestissumam, which is bound to push some buttons. The video is not safe for work, it contains nudity and graphic imagery, and can be viewed here (in some locations). Alternatively, you can watch the video below.
Swedish occult rockers Ghost B.C. have released another track from their upcoming album Infestissumam, entitled "Year Zero". You can listen to the new song on the video below. Don't forget that the release of Infestissumam is right around the corner on April 9th via Loma Vista Recordings.
Occult rockers Ghost, turned Ghost B.C. for legal reasons, have shared the cover artwork that will grace their second full-length studio release Infestissumam. You can feast your eyes on it below. The new album is expected to drop on April 9th via Loma Vista Recordings.
