Hailing from Sweden, mysterious band Ghost are back with their 3rd album, Meliora, and their heaviest sound yet.
The album was produced by Sweden's Klas Ahlund, and mixed by legendary producer/engineer Andy Wallace. Lead singer Papa Emeritus II was been 'let go' and has been replaced by the younger, more-powerful Papa Emeritus III - which was originally hinted at in an enigmatic national TV spot that aired, titled "The Summoning".
The band will embark on a full North American tour later this year, and the remarkable album, Meliora was released on August 21st via Loma Vista Recordings. The album's first single, "Cirice", reached Top 5 status on U.S. Active Rock radio, and won a Grammy award for the Best Metal Performance at the 58th annual Grammy awards in Los Angeles, in a category filled with astounding contemporaries, including Slipknot, Sevendust, and Lamb Of God.
