Legendary pioneers of Christian metal LIVING SACRIFICE have announced the release of their 8th studio album, Ghost Thief, November 12th on longtime label Solid State Records. The album marks the Little Rock, AR; band’s first since returning from a multi-year hiatus with 2010’s celebrated The Infinite Order.
“Ghost Thief is a reference to the personification of Death,” guitarist/vocalist Bruce Fitzhugh explains. “Depending on the circumstance, death can be greeted as an enemy or a friend. We have a few songs that deal with the suddenness and finality of death. ‘Ghost Thief’ and ‘Sudden’ both are inspired by people who died suddenly and unexpectedly. Friends of ours or family members that we were close to.”
Produced by DEMON HUNTER’s Jeremiah Scott, Ghost Thief marks the eighth studio album Living Sacrifice has issued since 1989, when a teenage Fitzhugh and Lance Garvin (drums) first united with friend DJ Johnson and later Jason Truby, determined to create a metal band as musically uncompromising as the secular groups of the day with a positive lyrical message. Practically unheard of at the time and to many quite controversial, the result blew open doors and crossed preconceived boundaries with a mix of thrash and death metal across their first three albums.
Ghost Thief tracklisting:
‘Screwtape’ (featuring Ryan Clark)
