Enigmatic Swedish metal stars Ghost have shared a brand-new webisode, Chapter 7: New World Redro. This chapter first brings the viewer up to date with the Cardinal Copia-Papa Nihil-Sister Imperator storyline and then begins to lay the foundation for more backstory secrets yet to be revealed. You can check out Chapter 7: New World Redro below.
In addition to New World Redro, Ghost are spending the bulk of the summer as special guest on Metallica’s four-leg WorldWired European stadium tour. Leg one saw the band playing to more than a quarter-million fans; leg two kicked off on 8 June, and legs three and four will take place July and August. Ghost will also perform at Heavy Montreal on July 27, and then embark on their North American ‘Ultimate Tour Named Death’ headline arena tour on September 13.
Last month, Ghost frontman Tobias Forge confirmed to Revolver that he will return to the studio in January 2020 to begin work on the band’s follow-up to 2018’s hugely successful Prequelle album.
Forge revealed his plans for the fifth Ghost studio LP: saying, “I want to make a different record from Prequelle. I want it to feel different… I definitely have a darker, heavier record in mind.” Forge added that Prequelle turned out to be “a little ballad heavy.”
Forge told The Pulse Of Radio what he had learned about the songs on Prequelle from playing them live for much of the past year. “I’ve come to realize that the songs on the record are very diverse,” he said. “Not that I didn’t understand that before, but I’ve definitely felt it now, playing them. Definitely a lot of the Prequelle material is varied, which I like. It fits very well into a live set that is very long.”
Prequelle debuted in June 2018 at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart. It has yielded the chart-topping ‘Rats’ and ‘Dance Macabre’ in addition to the band’s new single ‘Faith’.
