Bokassa – Crimson Riders

In the glorious months of summer, some get excited for barbeque season or even the light-colored beers that are brewed by local craft breweries. I am a bit more inclusive as I enjoy a good barbeque, a cold beer, and upbeat music adding in some atmosphere. Fortunately, Bokassa has returned with their sophomore release in Crimson Riders (MVKA) and it perfectly compliments the summer mindset. Do not get it twisted though, this album is still a collection of heavy music so your backyard party will quickly turn into a rager. Continue reading

Ghost Shares A New Trailer, Announces Tour Of Europe With Metallica

Ghost has shared another one of their humous clips starring Sister Imperator and Papa Nihil. The two chat by phone, as Sister is still laid up in the hospital after “The Accident”. The two have a discussion that can be interpreted as a veiled self-reverential diss at their history of different Papa’s and their replacement Cardinal Copia. Later in the clip Sister is phoned up by “The Original One” to see how she is doing. The band has stated that Papa Emeritus III is dead and the Papa character is “retired.” The band announced earlier their extensive Stadium tour of Europe next summer as the direct support for Metallica along with Bokassa for their “Worldwired To Self Destruct” 2019 tour. Ghost is about to begin their “A Pale Tour Named Death” tour of the USA soon. Continue reading
