Swedish occult rockers Ghost have released a brand new live performance video for the track »Mary On A Cross« from their recent show in Tampa, Florida. »Mary On A Cross« is taken from their latest full-length album, »Impera«, out on March 11th, 2022 via Loma Vista Recordings.
The band comments: “We wish to inform you that all good things must come to an end. Although the US Imperatour will wrap this weekend we wanted to leave you with this token of our appreciation for your continued support. Watch »Mary On A Cross« – Live from Tampa 2022.”
»Impera« finds Ghost transported literally hundreds of years forward from the 14th century Europe Black Plague era of its previous album, 2018’s Best Rock Album Grammy nominee »Prequelle«. The result is the most ambitious and lyrically incisive entry in the Ghost canon: Over the course of »Impera«’s 12-song cycle, empires rise and fall, would-be messiahs ply their hype (financial and spiritual alike), prophecies are foretold as the skies fill with celestial bodies divine and man-made… All in all, the most current and topical Ghost subject matter to date is set against a hypnotic and darkly colorful melodic backdrop making »Impera« a listen like no other – yet unmistakably, quintessentially Ghost.
