Boston progressive thrash metal outfit ICE GIANT have released their new album, ‘Ghost of Humanity’, today! The band’s sophomore full-length features the singles “Serenity of Darkness”, “Grandeval’s Machine”, and “Ghost of Humanity”.
‘Ghost of Humanity’ is a thematic space odyssey about the final survivors of the human race as they escape from post-apocalyptic Earth and try to find a new home elsewhere in the galaxy. Along the way, the listener is presented with ethical questions surrounding the nature of humanity, its impact on the planet’s climate, the morality of warfare, and more.
