It was exactly five months to the day when Ghost unveiled their “Instagram Story Video” for their at the time new single “Dance Macabre” and I shared that with the readership on THIS LINK. It was fun to see the band using the uber popular social networking site to their advantage and rather amusing to see all the different reactions of assorted music personality in regards to the track. Now its time for a brand new video for said song and one that is the kind many had expected in the first place. Let’s take a look.
Message From The Clergy: We wish to inform you Sister Imperator is recovering nicely and has another important message.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: It’s good to see Sister not only recovering but also taking the initiative in doling out the necessary work to keep the band Ghost on the road. At the close of the last clip, we found her instructing Papa Nihil to announce the European Tour (seen HERE in case you missed it). Now we find her taking a call from not only the Papa but The Old One Himself where she asks him to announce the Stadium Tour for 2019. Yes my fiends, Ghost will be supporting the mighty Metallica during their stadium run and I think they better have their big boy pants on because the flock will not take so kindly to a shorter Ghost set for more Metallica. What do you think of the clip and this news? Chime in down below and oh yeah, how did Sister like the flowers and the chocolates? You did send them didn’t you?
Message From The Clergy: We wish to inform you Chapter 4 is now ready for viewing….
PiercingMetal Thoughts: And so we have learned what terrible circumstance had befallen Sister Imperator while attending to some essential business for The Clergy. Yes, as you can see she was in a horrible car accident and part of it reminded me of the whole “Detroit Rock City” intro on the KISS “Destroyer” album. By the look of her she is going to be out of commission for a little while and that leaves the work up to Papa Nihil so let’s hope that he can keep focused on the tasks at hand. For those who wish to send gifts to Sister while she recovers, I believe the bands Official Facebook has the information on how you might do so. I’m told she loves lilies and Kit Kat candy. Until next time.
In the beginning of October, the mighty Behemoth will release their next album which is entitled “I Loved You At Your Darkest”. The opus will come care of their label of record for the last few years in Metal Blade Records and now that they have completed their support of “The Final Tour” by Slayer it’s time to get back to work on their own agenda. The first single for the album is “God=Dog” and the video for this profane little ditty just manifested across the darker channels of the YouTube. Let’s watch and I suggest that you leave the lights on and have some rosary beads nearby. Oh yeah, and chase the kids or younger friends out of the room since there are some violent and pseudo sexual images coming at you in this one. Definitely NSFW.
Whew. That was something else wasn’t it? Truth be told this didn’t surprise me since its Behemoth and after all, they have worn their blasphemous teachings on their sleeves for many, many years. In this one we find a few different variations on the Crucifixion and while singer Nergal is at one point one of the men hanging, we also find him playing the part of a vengeful king and then some angry demonic force of horror. Intense for sure and like I’ve mentioned just before the clip – not for all audiences. The track itself I will go into for a Single Review in the coming days. The video comes on the tail of the bands announcing their North American tour which we celebrated here on the website on a post that you can find HERE in case you missed it. Having just seen them during one of the Slayer appearances, I can only say how excited I am for a headlining tour as they truly command the stage. If you haven’t seen them yet, let this be your time.
Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last couple of years, you probably already know that Ghost is one of the breakthrough artists on the Hard Rock scene and despite their garish looks, their melodies are quite accessible and not as over the top heavy as some might assume. Also hot at the moment is the Instagram social network and to help celebrate the bands new album and songs, they have taken to the medium to deliver what is called an “Instagram Story Video”. Check it out below and I will give my overview afterwards.
