Formed by Dennis Mikula in 2012, Ghost Bath had a mysterious, if auspicious start. Mikula ebbed out music – first on the Ghost Bath EP (2013) and then on debut full-length Funeral (2014) – under the pseudo-nom de guerre 丹尼斯 to wide-spread plaudits of a fanbase unaware that the visionary song-master was an American hailing from small-town North Dakota. When the veil lifted in support of Ghost Bath's second full-length Moonlover in 2015, they were already well on their way to becoming one of the most exciting upstarts in extreme music memory. On the strength of Moonlover and the promise of what would come after, Ghost Bath secured a worldwide deal via Nuclear Blast. The group's vio-aggro sound – pinned to tenets of black metal but driven by dysthymia, revulsion, and tragedy – continues to evolve into more dangerous yet personally pensive territory.
