The depressive/post-black metal band Ghost Bath from USA begun in 2013 releasing two full-length albums so far, ‘Funeral‘ (2014, Pest Productions) and ‘Moonlover‘ (2015, Northern Silence Productions). The latter will be re-released by Nuclear Blast. The band is already in studio for the recording of their new album which will be officially announced in spring 2017. Nameless, the vocalist of Ghost Bath comments on the coming album:

“My own description of my approach for this album is better described in a quote I read recently in Herman Melville’s »Moby Dick«.”

“To enjoy bodily warmth, some small part of you must be cold, for there is no quality in this world that is not what it is merely by contrast. Nothing exists in itself. If you flatter yourself that you are all over comfortable, and have been so a long time, then you cannot be said to be comfortable any more. For this reason a sleeping apartment should never be furnished with a fire, which is one of the luxurious discomforts of the rich. For the height of this sort of deliciousness is to have nothing but the blanket between you and your snugness and the cold of the outer air. Then there you lie like the one warm spark in the heart of an arctic crystal.”

“Contrast is what creates stronger feeling and emotion in this album. A joyful ecstatic experience will further the potency of depression, drenched in the surrealism of the cosmos and afterlife.”
