On Friday, Aug. 21, Sweden’s most melodic troupe of evil, Ghost, will release their third album and follow up to 2013’s Infestissumam, Meliora, via Loma Vista. With nearly a week to go before the album is available in stores and on digital services, however, the album is now available to stream via YouTube. Fans of the group’s past two albums should find a lot to love here, in both the band’s ongoing commitment to making the best Satanic rock ‘n’ roll they can, as well as in their diverse array of sounds and renewed ambition. They’re sounding stronger than ever before, thanks in no small part to the Prince of Darkness, no doubt. Listen to the Ghost Meliora stream below.
