To celebrate the release of the new album, Impera, this week. I put together this music video for Ghost’s newly release song “Twenties”, which has been spinning through my head for the past week. I went through so many hours of footage till my eyes were practically numb. But when the inspiration strikes you must act!
Red jasper mounted in gold with white enamel. Inspired by the Rondanini Medusa in the Munich Glyptothek. This 5.3cm x 5.3cm masterwork features such fine details that are barely visible to the naked eye. Close inspection shows deep carved intricacies of hair, feathers, and other embellishments.
UK Doom Metal band Green Lung is constantly harking back to not only themes of old English witchcraft, but also to the 1960’s and 70’s Hammer Horror films. I am an avid collector of Hammer films myself, which is probably why I have recently fallen in love with this band. If Christopher Lee were still around he would easily fit into this music video, Graveyard Sun.
Ghost announced their new tour with Volbeat and Twin Temple. I cannot put into words the Satanic ecstasy that a Ghost concert provides. Such moving music–it pales in comparison to the sound of the albums. I have been to a Ghost ritual before and I consider it one of the high points of my entire life. Twin Temple will also be present! I am so so so so excited.
Did my friends and I just get very good seats? Yes.
Do we live on the complete opposite corner of the country where this is happening? Yes
Does this mean things can return to normal baseline reality? I sure fucking hope so.
