On March 8, 2024, Gost will release Prophecy — a thirteen-track beast of a full-length existing in a niche between black metal and synthwave. The Texas-based multi-instrumentalist and mastermind, James Lollar, has carved his own distinct path in the metal and electronic community, nailing great acclaim for his discography and touring spots alongside notable metal acts, including an ongoing tour with Katatonia. Prophecy came about as a byproduct of a world plagued with religious and political overreach, resulting in one crushing audiovisual experience that we'll explore at length next week.

Gost comments on the album:

“It’s about an imaginative fall of the Western civilization, the biblical end of the world – the rise of Satan and Armageddon. In America, there’s been a big rise of scared, reactive Christianity again, and almost like a re-emergence of the Satanic Panic. So it felt like an appropriate time to bring Satan back into things.”
