Ghost is continually writing and has new music always in the works.
“I usually write a lot,” Nameless Ghoul said. “I don’t make an album and don’t write for two years and then end up with a blank paper starting over.”
The band’s next album, tentatively planned for release this time next year, has a darker theme than its previous album “Meliora,” released in 2015.
“Having in mind that the previous record was about the absence of God or the absence of deities, this new one is going to be about the return of God,” Nameless Ghoul said. “You know God’s wrath cast upon the suffering humans, so it will be a little bit more biblical in that sense, which in turn makes it darker, a little bit more apocalyptic, I think. That’s basically what I can tell you about it right now.”
Music for the new album has been in the works for a few years.
