GOST returns with the new song “Bound By the Horror” taken from his upcoming album Rites of Love and Reverence.
Speaking about the inspiration behind the song, GOST says “’Bound by the Horror’ started the writing process for ‘Rites of Love and Reverence’. I wanted a heavy baseline to really start things off for this record and ‘Bound by the Horror’ is the result. ‘Bound by the Horror’ refers to how I started feeling boxed in creatively. One of my favorites from the new album and a kind of goodbye to limiting expectations.”
Watch the wonderfully witch-inspired video by Jason Woodward below.
Previously, GOST shared “A Fleeting Whisper” from the new album. The record features songs “inspired by witchcraft themes.” GOST says “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.”
