are streaming their new album "Infestissummam"
in full over at Pitchfork
Once you've opened that link in a new tab to hear for yourselves, head back to the comments here and let us know if you think the band live up to all their recent hype.
Meanwhile, the Swedish band who were forced to change their name from "Ghost" in the US for legal reasons have sworn to always stick to their original name.
"B.C. is obviously a pun on 'Before Christ,' but it's just an amendment,"
said one of the nameless ghouls in an interview with Soundsblog (via Blabbermouth
). "In our world, we're just gonna be called Ghost, and when we refer to our records, it's gonna be the Scandinavian version, saying Ghost only."
He continued: "We are never ever ever ever ever ever gonna call ourselves Ghost B.C. in any way. It's like saying 'I'm going out and buy a Ferrari STE' - you don't do that, you just say, 'I'm gonna buy a Ferrari.' The B.C. is silent, and as soon as we can, it's gonna be taken away forever."
In other Ghost B.C. news, they recently delayed the "Infestissummam" album release because CD manufacturers in the US were offended by drawings of a Christian orgy
on the CD label.
Yesterday Ghost B.C. posted their new single "Monstrance Clocks"
for streaming, which you can hear below.
