GHOST BATH - Moonlover, LP
"Moonlover is clearly a front runner for album of the year and could possibly propel Ghost Bath to the status of standard bearer for the entire genre."
"Moonlover ... is atmospheric, almost lyrical black metal with no perceptible Chinese character. The music has attracted comparisons to Deafheaven, presumably for its bleak but triumphal melodies, elegant postrock bombast, and wistful, aspirational chord progressions. [...] The band says the album is about "hopeless longing for something unattainable," and the vocals—mostly deranged, grief-stricken sobs and howls—bear that out. This beautiful, ferocious music demonstrates how fine the line can be between exhilaration and terror—it's for people who can't take a walk in the woods without seeing all the decaying bodies feeding the roots of the trees."
"There isn’t enough words, expressions and metaphors to fully explain how wonderful and delightful this album is. Over everything else, the music is the absolute best and they stepped it up a notch from their last release, Funeral, which I thought was going to be impossible."
(9.6/10 - www.headbangorgtfo.com)
"As gargantuan as the hype machine powering it has grown since January, Moonlover fully lives up. Right from the get-go, the album serves up exactly what you want from depressive black metal: peaks; valleys; moments of joy, but also others of deep sadness and vulnerability."
"Moonlover is simply a breath-taking release, mesmerizing and seductive in its downer mood and yet exciting."

"Ghost Bath has authored what will be the unquintessentially quintessential black metal album of 2015."
