Ghost is getting ready to release their third album, Meliora, next month. We’ve already heard their thunderous and dynamic first single, “Cirice,” and now Ghost is offering up a second taste of the upcoming album: “From The Pinnacle To The Pit” is more reminiscent of the band’s first album, 2010’s Opus Eponymous, than their more recent Infestissumam. Rather than gothic, gregorian grandiosity, the new song is more raw and riff-based, harkening back to their earlier sound. “From The Pinnacle To The Pit” is grittier and more chaotic than “Cirice,” and though it has a similarly pounding effect, it is overall punchier. Give a listen to “From The Pinnacle To The Pit” and hear for yourself:
Meliora, Ghost’s third full-length album, will be released on August 21st, and includes 10 new songs. If you pre-order Meliora on iTunes, you will get instant downloads of “From The Pinnacle To The Pit” and lead single “Cirice.” Keep checking back here for all the latest Ghost music news, and get ready for their new album coming in just a few weeks.
