Ghost have enlisted Carpenter Brut for a remix of Dance Macabre.

Tobias Forge, Ghost’s mastermind, is a longtime fan of the mysterious French synthwave band, having invited them to join his group on the road in 2016. Carpenter Brut said:

"I've been a big fan of Ghost since their beginning. And when I had the opportunity to open for the band in 2016, I was super excited. Last April, I received an email from Tobias himself asking if I would remix ‘Dance Macabre,' and of course I accepted. I wanted to bring a funky and disco touch, not just confine myself to the pure synthwave style that would have been expected, but to make this remix a disco rock song and bring out the pop side of the band that is always underlying in their music."

Already one of the most popular tracks from the Swedish band's fourth studio album, 'Prequelle', Dance Macabre followed Rats as the second single from the record. Check out the reborn track and its accompanying artwork and animated visual, below.

Ghost will support the follow up to 2015's 'Meliora' and its accompanying 'Popestar' EP with their A Pale Tour Named Death run in North America this autumn and winter, including huge arena shows at the Forum in Los Angeles and Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Prior to that, Forge and band will return to the UK for a sold out performance at the iconic Royal Albert Hall in London on September 9.

Clutch - Book of Bad Decisions (Album Review)
Fri 07 Sep 2018
Despite being poster boys for gritty guitar licks, quirky lyrics and bluesy, boozy funk-rock, Clutch have never achieved the mainstream attention that their self-sustaining march over the years should merit. Even though 2015’s superb ‘Psychic Warfare’ broke them through to an extent, there remains a boatload of charm in the Maryland groovelords’ way of modestly churning out one outstanding record after another. The gloriously titled ‘Book of Bad Decisions’ doesn’t buck that trend.
True Rockers Take Risks: Why Monster Truck Are Set To Explode
Tue 25 Sep 2018
Armed with a bulldozing brand of stoner-infused, bluesy rock ‘n’ roll, Canada’s Monster Truck have steadily established themselves as a must see live act over the last decade. Having battered more and more eardrums into submission at progressively larger venues, particularly as a support act to Deep Purple, Alter Bridge and Black Stone Cherry, arena headlining status has increasingly seemed like it’s theirs for the taking. And if their relentlessly anthemic third album ‘True Rockers’ is anything to go by, heaven help anyone who tries to stop them.
Alice in Chains - Rainier Fog (Album Review)
Thu 06 Sep 2018
Named after an ominous volcano near Seattle, while acting as a tribute to the music scene that shot them to prominence in the early 1990s, ‘Rainier Fog’ is Alice In Chains’ third record since reforming after the death of frontman Layne Staley in 2002. Erupting with flavours old and new, it’s a classy effort that demonstrates exactly what master craftsmanship looks like. So why is it difficult to shake the feeling something’s missing?
