Swedish synth wizards Priest (ex-Ghost) are finally back with their brand new album “Dark Pulse” out via Blue Nine. 

To celebrate the event the band unveils the official video for the song “Demon’s Call” – a dark synthpop anthem which explores the more obscure corners of the human soul. With haunting melodies and provocative lyrics, it delves into intoxicating forbidden desires. Prepare to be ensnared by the call of your inner demons!

The video was directed by Claudio Marino (Artax Film), well known for his works with Behemoth, Katatonia, Watain, Marduk, Shining and many more.

Priest’s fourth album “Dark Pulse” was produced by Simon Söderberg (ex-Ghost) who helped the band to craft a dark synth pop opus with rave elements and heavy industrial notes.

Heavily inspired by cyberpunk and goth culture, it dives into the dark and seductive night life that can be found specifically in Berlin. “Dark Pulse” explores themes like alcohol addiction, surviving narcissism, forbidden love etc. connected to a past flamboyant lifestyle that just won’t let go. With a signature blend of eerie synthesizers and pulsating hardware, Priest delves deeper into the shadows of dystopia and human-machine symbiosis. Get ready for an electronic dance record with poisoned roots, catapulting you into feverish insanity and back!

Priest is a synth band that creates music rooted in the vastness of electronic dreams. The goal of their multifaceted prophecy is to safely guide humanity unto the next evolutionary step – the merging with machines.

The occult techno-pop act from Sweden, containing ex-members from Ghost, will throw you into the neon lights of 80 ́s sci-fi mixed with gothic soundscapes. With several praised global tours and critically acclaimed releases like “New Flesh” and “Body Machine” they have successfully generated an ever-growing fanbase worldwide.

Priest has toured with bands like Nitzer Ebb, Die Krupps, Combichrist, Deathstarsand Front Line Assembly among others. Priest is also featured on Cleopatra Records tribute albums for Rammstein, Depeche Mode and The Cure and has remixed tracks for Pure Obsessions & Red Nights, Aux Animaux and Sjöblom.
