Title: “Cirice” (Single)
Label: Loma Vista Recordings
Release Date: 5/31/2015
Genre: Doom Rock
Before we begin this little single summary let’s bow our heads in respect at the retirement of Papa Emeritus II and welcome to the fold the macabre musical might of Papa Emeritus III who is the previous singers six-month younger brother. Out with the old and in with the new as Ghost brings us the first single from their upcoming album “Meliora” with “Cirice” and what a thundering single it is when it comes down to it.
There is a lot of dramatic vibe in this moody track along with some really crushing riffs. The number overall is a slower paced one but a lengthy piece running at just over six minutes in length. It’s safe to say that Papa III is up to the challenge that his predecessor left him with and if you listen carefully you will not even detect the slightest bit of difference in the two voices. I’m sure this will be a wonderful number in concert and I hope it’s included since there were quite a few musical up and downs in the overall feel. The Nameless Ghouls really did great with some awesome keyboard and guitar breaks. Their unwavering servitude should be noted and that is all I have to say about this one. Fans (or should I say “acolytes”) will need to wait until the tail end of August for the full album to arrive. Begin marking your calendar watch now……
