Gost Premieres “Bound By The Horror” Music Video

Gost has premiered a new video for his latest single “Bound By The Horror.” That track is from his new album “Rites Of Love And Reverence,” which will be released on August 13. Gost commented:

“’Bound by the Horror’ started the writing process for ‘Rites of Love and Reverence’. I wanted a heavy baseline to really start things off for this record and ‘Bound by the Horror’ is the result. ‘Bound by the Horror’ refers to how I started feeling boxed in creatively. One of my favourites from the new album and a kind of goodbye to limiting expectations.”

Gost Premieres “A Fleeting Whisper” Video

Gost has premiered a new video for his new song “A Fleeting Whisper.” This track is from his new album “Rites Of Love And Reverence,” which will be released on August 13. Gost commented:

“’A Fleeting Whisper’ is an homage to not only navigating spirituality but simply being human. The uncertainty of life makes living both beautiful and terrifying. We all carry around so many similar insecurities and feelings of doubt in this modern digital age. A time in our history which promises ultimate connectivity seems, all too often, to leave many of us feeling increasingly disconnected and alone. Music has always been a way for us to forget our differences and come together as a species. Personally, music has been the one true constant in my life and in many ways, the only true spirituality I have found solace in. Like a fleeting whisper, sometimes almost undetectable, music ties the events of my life together.”

Gost Premieres “Coven” Video

Gost has premiered a new video for his new song “Coven.” This track is from his new album “Rites Of Love And Reverence,” which will be released on August 13. Gost said the following about the song:

“’Coven’ is a piece that seemed to write itself, flowing almost effortlessly from some unexplainable source. This song is told from the perspective of a persecuted witch who is proud of her coven and will die before she betrays her sisters. In memory of the many victims throughout history, by which mere accusations of witchcraft condemned the innocent to death.”

Gost To Release New Album “Rites Of Love And Reverence” In August

Gost will be releasing a new album titled “Rites Of Love And Reverence” on August 13. You can find the cover art and track listing for that effort below:

“Rites Of Love And Reverence” Track Listing:

01. “Bell, Book And Candle” (feat. Bitchcraft)
02. “Bound By The Horror”
03. “The Fear”
04. “A Fleeting Whisper”
05. “We Are The Crypt”
06. “Blessed Be”
07. “November Is Death” (feat. Bitchcraft)
08. “Embrace The Blade”
09. “Coven”
10. “Burning Thyme”

Gost commented:

“I have recently been fixated on the subject of witchcraft and its effect on women throughout history. I myself practice rituals to help clear my mind and focus on my day to day endeavors. This curiosity into witchcraft’s history and my own traditions combined to inspire the new album.”

He also added the following about the cover art, which was photographed by Nona Limmen:

“I have been a fan of Nona Limmen’s work for some time now. The inspiration for the new album is much about witchcraft from the feminine perspective. For women, throughout history, witchcraft has been negative, empowering, poisonous, and beautiful. The moment I saw this photographer by Nona, I could not imagine using anything else to convey the album’s content as beautifully and powerfully as this image does.”

The Black Dahlia Murder, Revocation, Etc. Members To Guest On New Nitesoil EP

Nitesoil, the project launched by Frank Godla (Meek Is Murder, Enabler) and Nick Emde (Contracult Collective, White Widows Pact), will be releasing their debut EP “Abusement Park” on November 6. The effort can be pre-ordered HERE and 100% of the proceeds will go towards the Cancer Research Institute.

“Abusement Park” Track Listing:

06. “D.S.I.T.S.” (feat. Doug Moore of Pyrrhon)

Godla commented:

“We started this band as a joke we thought no one would hear; a folder of sick riffs from Nick titled “Slammy Sosa”. Once I spent weeks rearranging and tracking grooves, black mailing some killer death metal vocalists to come over to my house and participate, and kidnapping one of the sickest engineers in the game to mix and master this shit in order to be released…we’re still a joke. But at least it sounds legit, and it’s all for charity you chumps!”

The first single, “Burn Me Down” (feat. Aaron Heinold), can be found below:

Godla commented:

“By keeping the set times between 5 and 15 minutes for each artist, it allows me to not only keep things moving, but mix it up in ways that conventional festivals simply can’t. Every single hour will contain big names and emerging artists right next to each other.

I’m trying to look at the bright side of our current situation, and not only make this an entertaining way to see the artists you love flex their creativity in new ways, but hope this event acts as a place of discovery for every viewer out there.

Finding a band or artist to fall in love with is the mark of a great festival to me, and it’s my honor to share the work of these amazing individuals I curated because I’m passionate about them. I’ve been in touch with all of them every step of the way, and some even managed to throw me a few surprises.

I’m honored and humbled to have all of them part of this, they truly went above and beyond to showcase their craft for the Slay At Home fest, and I can’t wait for the world to see something really special come to life this weekend.”

Money raised from the event will benefit MusiCares and Global Giving.

The experience of a live concert is irreplaceable, but my aim with Slay At Home is to provide every person in the world an experience they haven’t seen yet, right from their own devices.
