Ghost Bath Unveils "Starmourner" Album Details

Ghost Bath is pleased to announce the release of "Starmourner" on April 21st via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. As a precursor to its release, the band has unveiled the first single from the record, entitled "Thrones." Listen in below.

Since its 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.

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."

The album was recorded, mixed, mastered and produced by Josh Schroeder (Battlecross, Still Remains) and features cover artwork Luciana Nedelea (Enbilulugugal, Foehammer). The track listing is as follows:

1. Astral
2. Seraphic
3. Ambrosial
4. Ethereal
5. Celestial
6. Angelic
7. Luminescence
8. Thrones
9. Elysian
10. Cherubim
11. Principalities
12. Ode
