Tales from Bandcamp: Moonlover by Ghost Bath

a0529726240_10It’s rare that something can execute being so violently melancholic and at the same time life-affirming and uplifting.  Last time I can think I’ve had those feels hit me this hard simultaneously was when I first saw the first ten minutes of the Pixar film ‘Up’.  It’s quite the enigma of emotional cocktails.  Ghost Bath masterfully pulls at heartstrings with the aptly titled Moonlover.  Whirlwinds of chaotic black metal peppered with lush soundscapes of post-rock all meld together to create this unique, indescribable sound of heart-wrenching beauty.  It’s just something that has to be heard to be understood.

And with that, I’ll leave this post short and let you all have at it.  If you fancy bands such as Deafheaven than this is mandatory listening.  All others, do give this masterpiece a shot.  Be prepared for some feels.  Let us know what you think!  Peace Love and Metal!!!!!
