Sounds | GOST, Coven

Dit is alles wat ik verwacht van Gost. Een post-punk track die mij fel aantrekt door de tempowisselingen met een industriële toon. De teksten zelf zijn zeer gotisch en dat had ik niet verwacht door de industriële toon en de elektronische gedeeltes ertussen. Door dit soort muziek te maken zorgt de man ervoor dat er veel mensen uit verschillende genres naar zijnt muziek kunnen luisteren: van metalfans tot technofans. Er komt ook een nieuw album uit op vrijdag de 13de (augustus). Aan zijn teksten te horen, is vrijdag de 13de geen verassing voor mij.

Rites of Love and Reverence verschijnt op 13 augustus via Century Media Records.


Last year Century Media Records welcomed the mysterious producer known as GosT, who embodies the character of Baalberith on his propulsive synthwave solo project that is channeling his fascination with the occult, John Carpenter and 80s slasher flicks.

As a teenager he played in metal bands, but eventually drifted toward electronic music which would later become the foundation of his powerful synthwave/retrowave sound. With its haunting atmospherics and aesthetics influenced by the blackest corners of the metal world his music quickly garnered GosT a loyal following within the rock and metal community worldwide. Apart from playing his own headlining tours in Europe and North America he used the interest from his growing fan base to hit the road with the likes of diverse acts such as Pertubator, Carpenter Brut, 3TEETH, Pallbearer, Black Dahlia Murder, Power Trip, Khemmis, Havok and Skeletal Remains. Earlier this year GosT announced the invocation of Carreau who joined Baalberith live on stage. For the recording, mix and mastering of the new opus, “Valediction”, GosT teamed up with Jaime Gomez Arellano who worked with the likes of Paradise Lost, Solstafir, Priomordial, Myrkur and many more. The result is a volatile mix that ranges from synthwave/retrowave to the most raging and extreme caverns of black metal. Furthermore, it should come as no surprise that GosT will be touring with the legendary Mayhem and Gaahls Wyrd in Europe in November.
