In advance of its release, today GHOST BATH unveil ‘Ambrosial’ for public consumption. Offers vocalist Nameless of the track:
“’Ambrosial’ is one of the most surreal songs on the record. The end is near trance-inducing in its structure. If you make it out to one of our shows you can hear this beast of a track live.”

Since their inception, GHOST BATH has played atmospheric black metal focused on depression, tragedy, purgatory, and earthly wonders. »Starmourner« – the second record of a trilogy – takes these concepts to a higher level. It explores joy instead of sorrow, paradise instead of purgatory, and the cosmos instead of earth. Most importantly however, it explores ecstasy — instead of tragedy — as its basic human emotion. With over seventy-two minutes of heavy, melodic, and dramatic black metal, it is GHOST BATH’s most ambitious undertaking yet.
GHOST BATH refers to the act of committing suicide by submerging in a body of water. The band writes and creates under the assumption that music is an extension of one’s own soul. They journey through the sorrow and sadness that all lives experience, but leave a glimmer of hope. They portray both deep anguish and angelic soundscapes that are sure to leave an impression on the listener. The band started in October of 2013 with the release of their self-titled EP on Solitude Productions. This was followed by their debut album titled, »Funeral«, which was released on Pest Productions in June of 2014. The band’s sophomore album, »Moonlover«, was released in April of 2015 through Northern Silence Productions. A reissue was released by Nuclear Blast Entertainment in June of 2016.
