Swedish satanic rockers “Ghost” are working on material for the following up record to the critically acclaimed “Opus eponymous”.
In an interview with Hellbound.ca one of the nameless Ghost members had the following to say about the recordings.
“We are working on new material and a lot of it is finalized. We know the direction the next record is going. We’ve tried to keep the same playfulness from the first album. A lot of the songs on “Opus” came without a filter. We didn’t try to exclude anything, just make it challenging and dramatic. We’ve managed to put together something that comes from the same source. But we’ve also chosen to emphasize new things on this record. We’ve been using the word “divine” through the creation. This record will be slightly bigger, not in the commercial sense, but the sound will be a little bit bigger than the first. There are also different philosophical themes in the first record versus the second. The first album deals with before the Antichrist, something foreboding, something in the future. The songs are about a darkness or Antichrist almost upon us. The new record is about the presence of the Devil, the presence of the Antichrist. It’s also about how people relate to a deity or God, themes like submission and superstition, the horrors of being religious. There’s a step thematically. The third record will take it even further.”
