Ghost frontman Tobias Forge spoke in an interview with Revolver Magazine, and revealed new update on upcoming album of the band.
He has explained that what we can expect from their new album, and said:
“I want it to feel different. If I dare to say ‘heavier,’ people think that it’s going to be Mercyful Fate all the way … but I definitely have a darker, heavier record in mind.
I have always pushed myself to write the songs that we don’t have instead of going back – it maybe would’ve been a smart move to just try to replicate [Ghost’s 2010 debut album] ‘Opus [Eponymous].’ I can regurgitate. I grew up with metal. It’s in my DNA, so I can formulate death-metal lyrics easily. But I try not to repeat myself on that.
I like to make the Metallica comparison – where ‘Kill ‘Em All’ is a little bit more crude, on ‘Ride the Lightning’ they started writing about more real things. It had more depth.
I’m not going change everything and just talk about politics, but I believe that if you have people’s attention, you have a responsibility to weigh with your words a little. Sometimes that is hard. I find that harder than the musical challenges.”

Back in December 2018, he talked in a conversation with Loudwire and said:
“Definitely 2020 as opposed to 2019. From our perspective, at least, 2019 is already over. That year is already done.
That doesn’t limit me from writing or starting the steps, but when it comes to like, having a consecutive three-month studio time, there is no such time in 2019.
So that will happen, probably, in spring 2020. Then you have to add like three months of waiting between recording and releasing. So, yeah, you see where I’m going.”
