Title: “Dance Macabre” (Carpenter Brut Remix)
Label: Loma Vista Recordings
Release Date: 8/24/2018
Genre: Hard Rock/Pop Rock
Greetings followers of the comings and goings in the world of the band Ghost. The band recently offered up a remixed version of their single “Dance Macabre” and I am here to tell you a few of my thoughts out it. You might recall that back in May they shared what amounted to an “Instagram Story” video that showed reactions and interactions about the tune and if you missed my summary on that one just click HERE to be up to speed. So now what do we think about the bands remix by Carpenter Brut?
Truth be told I am NOT the biggest fan of remixes as its just not my thing but I have to admit that in the case of the “Dance Macabre” track, it really works by having a Synthwave version of the number. Let’s face it, the track is rather danceable in the first place which is likely driving the bands original fanbase over a cliff based on just how different they sound now. With “Dance Macabre” is appears to be less about the Infernal Dark Overlord and more about getting one’s freak on. Hey whatever helps sell the album’s right? I can see this version of the bands tune being popular among the dancehall circuit and while that might make the fans from the earliest days to reconsider their allegiance as I’ve noted just above, it doesn’t seem to be deterring from their path to superstardom. Perhaps this Cardinal Copia is onto something with the remixed version. I wonder if they will do a danceable “Year Zero”. That would be interesting for sure.
