Exclusive Stream: Ghost Horizon – “Radiant Eyes”

Ghost Horizon - The Erotics of Disgust

Arizona’s post black metallers Ghost Horizon have announced April 7 as the release date for their highly anticipated second EP The Erotics of Disgust which consists of four intensely emotional songs clocking in at a super fast 18 minutes. Seriously, as soon as you dig in this thing is over and way too soon if you ask me. Even though the band has self tagged this as post black metal to me it’s four tracks of deeply immersive and emotive black metal, bearing just enough of the aggressive blast beats and scathing vocals to keep the elite happy while leaning on light and airy sections bookmarked with the occasional clean vocal to keep those of us looking for an escape happy. So it really is the perfect medium to fully let yourself go with. Today we have an exclusive stream of opening track “Radiant Eyes” for your listening pleasure after the jump. But, don’t blame me if you get completely bowled over with it since I had the exact same response.

Founder and vocalist Dan Stollings says it best with this excerpt “It’s been hard to let this EP into the world, because in a lot of ways, I’m sharing some pretty deep emotions that I would never talk about otherwise. I’ve been through a lot of ups and downs in the process of it’s creation, and I think that’s reflected pretty heavily in the music.” Honestly no better words can describe the way The Erotics of Disgust turned out. It’s a roller coaster ride of highs and lows but there’s a resounding feeling of hope throughout each and every track and “Radiant Eyes” is a picture perfect example of this. Starting off slowly, building with each feathered tremolo crescendo to the proverbial payoff of slower paced drumming, lightly hummed echoes and aggressive vocals this is exactly what is needed after a few days of exorbitant stress, deadlines and pitfalls. This is music to get lost in and I certainly hope you can find the time to get lost in it as well. Without further ado, we give you “Radiant Eyes”…

The Erotics of Disgust will be available April 7 on Bandcamp. For more information on Ghost Horizon visit their Facebook page.

    What’s the deal with the Anaal Nathrakh album cover steal??

      Cover art was taken from a public domain piece: Gustave Doré’s illustrations to “The Raven”. Consequently Anaal used it previously. Thanks for stopping by

      Public domain piece that Anaal used and now it is used again. It’s taken from Gustave Doré’s illustrations to “The Raven”.
