Swedish occult rockers Ghost are streaming “Absolution”, a new track from their forthcoming third album, “Meliora.”
Due August 21, the project sees the debut of new vocalist Papa Emeritus III alongside the Nameless Ghouls following the resignation of his three-month older brother Papa Emeritus II.
“Meliora” is the follow-up to the band’s second album and major label debut, 2013’s “Infestissumam,” which debuted at number one in Sweden and won the Swedish Grammis Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Album.
“Absolution” is the third track issued in advance of the album, following “From The Pinnacle To The Pit”
and the lead single, “Cirice.”

Ghost debuted Papa Emeritus III and four songs from “Meliora” at Doom in Linköping, Sweden on June 3.
The group will launch the Black To The Future North American tour at The Fillmore in Washington, DC on September 22, which will be followed by a newly-announced fall run across Europe.
