Along with a mesmerizing cover by Dutch photographer Nona Limmen.
Between Perturbator, Dan Terminus, Carpenter Brut, and today's subject, GOST, the synthwave realm is thriving with talent, each of which understands the significance of visual investment with artwork as sadistic as their soundscapes. One could say that GOST is among the most illustrious of the bunch, and today, the entity paves the path for the arrival of the next chapter, the Nona Limmen-photographed Rites of Love and Reverence. Arriving on August 13th via Century Media Records, Rites rose from GOST's own traditions and curiosity into witchcraft’s history, which only indicates the type of looming darkness that awaits.
GOST comments on Limmen's cover:
“I have been a fan of Nona Limmen’s work for some time now. The inspiration for the new album is much about witchcraft from the feminine perspective. For women, throughout history, witchcraft has been negative, empowering, poisonous, and beautiful. The moment I saw this photographer by Nona, I could not imagine using anything else to convey the album’s content as beautifully and powerfully as this image does.”
