From the vacuous depths of space, the great pathogenic force of Galaktik Cancer Squad will once again return to haunt the aural realms of the earth with their first ever physical release, ‘Ghost Light.’ An ambitious one-man project from Germany, Galaktik Cancer Squad was formed by Arwohn in 2011 and has to the point before Ghost Light released four albums digitally. Aggressive, and experimental post-black metal with cacophonous discordant vocals combine with moments of soaring post-rock melancholy that make you soar to other dimensions. Simultaneously mind-bending and sky-searing, Galaktik Cancer Squad on a physical medium for the first time ever captures the best of the project yet. Extremely well-written and forward thinking experimental black metal, embrace summer, sun, and the galaktik cancer squad!


Die Perlen am Himmel verzieren die Nacht
ungebrochen ihre Anziehungskraft
Wie stille Wächter am Firmament
leuchten sie zu uns herab
Beflügelt vom ewigen Schein
man sehnt sich hin, will dort oben sein
so nimmt man auch die Gefahr in Kauf
nicht zurück zu kehren

Der Menschheitstraum seit ewiger Zeit
wird in Erfüllung gehen
Maschinen gebaut, um damit zu fliegen
die Reise zu den Sternen beginnt

Augen in der Ferne beobachten das Treiben
verlockend glänzend feuern sie es an
Wir ahnen nichts von den Sirenen in der Weite
wir sind verblendet vom Irrlicht, das uns leitet

Augen in der Ferne erwidern unseren Blick
und dann kommt die Erkenntnis, es geht nicht mehr zurück
Augen in der Ferne erlöschen nach und nach
das Verderben ist dir sicher, jagst du den Irrlichtern nach


from Ghost Light, track released June 21, 2013
