Published May 31, 2015After some confusion, Swedish metal ghouls Ghost have confirmed that their album Meliora will be out on August 21 through Spinefarm, and now the band have now shared the LP cut "Cirice."
The song is a melodic, six-minute epic that begins with quiet acoustic plucking. Before too long, it swells with head-banging electric riffs before breaking down with solemn piano and organ and crescendoing with a cloud-scraping guitar solo. The lyrics, meanwhile, touch on spooky subjects like candles, thunder and tainted souls.
Take a listen to the song below.
