NEWS: Gost shares “A Fleeting Whisper”!

Friday 13th is unlucky for some but that hasn’t stopped Gost from setting that date in August for the release of “Rites of Love and Reverence” to appear from the ether via Century Media. Having shared stages with everyone from Power Trip to Pig Destroyer and offering post-synthwave exploits in kaleidoscopic technicolor, delivering all the glass-shattering grit, incisive melodic melancholy and tripped-out, electronic fervour that you can imagine, the release is one that is being described as both grim and vivid. Here’s second single “A Fleeting Whisper” to test your strength…

There is more to this than meets the eye though: “’A Fleeting Whisper’ is an homage to not only navigating spirituality but simply being human”GOST explains. “The uncertainty of life makes living both beautiful and terrifying. We all carry around so many similar insecurities and feelings of doubt in this modern digital age. A time in our history which promises ultimate connectivity seems, all too often, to leave many of us feeling increasingly disconnected and alone. Music has always been a way for us to forget our differences and come together as a species.  Personally, music has been the one true constant in my life and in many ways, the only true spirituality I have found solace in. Like a fleeting whisper, sometimes almost undetectable, music ties the events of my life together.”

“The lyrics were inspired by witchcraft themes,” says the man himself. “It’s mainly about how witchcraft has affected women throughout history. Witch trials and the subsequent executions throughout the ages terrify me. I fear, as a society, we are always on the verge of such horrible psychosis based on the misunderstanding and intolerance of one another. I try to educate myself on any historical subject I use as an influence, out of respect for the real people who actually lived through it.”
