The prequel that was released on June 1, 2018 (Spinefarm Records). The album was loosely influenced by The Black Plague, the devasting pandemic that wiped out more than 20-million people across Europe in the 14th century, the disease being carried by rats. However, as Ghost’s mastermind, Tobias Forge recently told Revolver, “‘Rats’ is not technically about rodents. It’s about something spreading as wildfire and completely destroying things quicker than you know.”
