Hi, what are you looking for?

Apocalyptic Blues

Watch this heart-wrenching video from CHIEF GHOUL “Take My Hand”

CHIEF GHOUL’s about section on his Facebook page says “Johnny Cash and The Misfits spawned a thing called Chief Ghoul” – and if ever there was a more CVLT Nation description, I haven’t read it (outside of Sean’s posts). The minute I hit play on his video for “Take My Hand” I knew this was something special – a more classic country/folk version of King Dude, he has a beautiful, melancholy voice that sends chills down my spine as he sings about Death, the bitter end I’ve come to know intimately over the past few years. “Oh Death, where is your victory?” His music has come into my life at the perfect time; as I’m looking Death in the face again, watching it take another leader in my life. Last week, Chief Ghoul released the video for “Take My Hand,” and I’m so happy to be sharing it with you today. His album 1892 will be coming out on July 17th, so stay tuned to hear our full stream of it in the next couple of weeks…

 

I said take my hand

You took my heart

With a fiery grip

Now it burns like a torch in the dark

You light my way

And I knew from the start

But I needed that time alone

That time to break apart

Oh death, where is your sting?

Oh death, where is your victory?

On down the road

As the seasons change

All blood will run cold

And everything stays the same

So why do we speak

When the fact remains

With everything that we know

We don’t know a thing

Oh death, where is your sting?

Oh death, where is your victory?
