Ghost Bath have released a video for their track Seraphic.

It features on their new album Starmourner which was released last week via Nuclear Blast. The record is the final part of a trilogy that started with 2014’s Funeral and continued on 2015’s Moonlover.

Speaking in the new issue of Metal Hammer, Ghost Bath leader Dennis Mikula, aka Nameless, revealed that using lyrics isn’t always the best way to get a message across.

He said: “Lyrics can add to the music, but a lot of times they can really take away from what an artist wants to achieve. It takes away some of the abstractness, instead of letting the listener interpret it however they want.

“Sometimes I do find myself saying actual words. Playing live or in the studio I’ll start screaming and a certain line will come out.

“It’s never anything random that has nothing to do with it, but it happens. People have guessed at what I’m saying in certain parts and I don’t think anyone has been able to tell.”

The full interview with Nameless can be found in the brand new edition of Metal Hammer magazine, which is on sale now.

Iron Maiden are the cover stars, while Royal Thunder, While She Sleeps, Motionless In White and Life Of Agony also feature.
