Ghost release video for song “Faith” as wrap up for ‘A Pale Tour Named Death’
Ghost have finished their North American tour titled A Pale Tour Named Death in support of transformation from modern metal to Sleaze Roxx friendly rock n’ roll by releasing a video for their song “Dance Macabre” from their latest album Prequelle.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Prequelle:
“Folks, this isn’t the Ghost that all of your hipster friends tried to force on you. This is a New Wave of Swedish Sleaze album with songs that would have fit in perfectly on Generation Wild. Ghost have ditched the poor instrumentation and weak songwriting of the past to create a piece of music that fans of Sleaze Roxx will love.
The album contains three songs that purely capture the Crashdïet sound: “Rats,” “Faith” and “Dance Macabre.” “Rats” is a conventional rock single. “Faith” is a slightly heavier riff rocker and “Dance Macabre” is a bouncy tune driven by fantastic bass playing. Any of those three songs would fit into a Crashdïet playlist seamlessly, taking the visual aspect of the band out.
As far as the other tunes on the album, Ghost tends to fall more into the kind of balladry you’d find with contemporary power metal, though with a few interesting musical choices including the best saxophone solo I’ve heard on a release this year. The band’s lyrics are improved from previous efforts, but still play into the Black Sabbath “ooh isn’t Satan scary” schtick. While the previous Ghost albums aped much of their sound from the modern American indie scene, this album feels much more at home with the melodic rock and metal of their home nation of Sweden.”
