Band: Ghost Bath
Label: Nuclear Blast (North America) / Northern Silence (Europe)
Genre: Black metal
If 2015 was the year that broke Ghost Bath, 2016 was the year that put them on the map. They exploded onto the scene last year with an epic album in Moonlover (the best album of 2015), but this year was the year they made their mark on music. They were signed to Nuclear Blast which re-released Moonlover to a new audience in support of their first ever USA and European tours, becoming one of the most successfully Suicidal Depressive Black Metal bands of all time.
The fact that a band which performs SDBM has become one of the most talked about bands of the year shows how much they’ve struck a nerve. They were a much needed shock to the system, something very different. When they played festivals, people flocked to see them to see what the fuss was about. While the vocals may have divided opinion, there’s one thing for certain, this is not the last we’ve heard of Ghost Bath.
Jack had a chat with Nameless from Ghost Bath earlier this year, you can read that chat here.
