Ghost 'Meliora' (album stream)

Ghost 'Meliora' (album stream)
Though Scandinavian hard rock ghouls Ghost are due to drop their Meliora LP in just a few days, they've scared up a full-album stream for the faithful ahead of the official August 21 due date via Spinefarm/Loma Vista Recordings. You can hear the whole spooky thing online right now.

We'd already been treated to a clutch of creeped-out, riff-crunching cuts, including "From the Pinnacle to the Pit,""Majesty," and "Cirice."

There's much more to explore, though, from the chilling, horror score-styled intro that leads into opening cut "Spirit," to the menacing, militarized trills of "Mummy Dust," and the organ-soaked mini séance they call "Devil Church."

You can check out Papa Emeritus III and the rest of his nameless posse scaring up their fair share of freaky rock riffs down below.

As previously reported, Ghost start their North American tour in September, and will hit up Toronto and Montreal during the trip. You'll find the show details here.
