Editors’ Notes

Frontman Papa Emeritus II dresses like a satanic pope and paints his face to resemble a skull. Backed by a band of cloaked, devil-worshipping monks, Ghost B.C. is an intimidating sight to behold. That is, until the band starts playing music. Like its 2010 debut album, Opus Eponymous, Ghost B.C.’s 2013 sophomore full-length is ripe with catchy songs and melodic guitar-pop hooks that have more in common with Blue Öyster Cult than any of those church-burning Norwegian black metal bands. Following the introductory title track (with the aforementioned monks chanting in Latin over a bombastic classic rock backdrop), “Per Aspera Ad Inferi” kicks out some hard-rocking riffs as Papa Emeritus II sings like a young Buck Dharma on BÖC’s 1981 album Fire of Unknown Origin. The anthemic “Year Zero” winds through progressive arrangements driven by galloping rhythms and dramatic swells of choral chanting. The Moody Blues–esque “Idolatrine” sounds authentically '70s. Of the deluxe version’s two bonus tracks, “Secular Haze” stands out with a contrast of dark carnival sounds and near sing-along choruses.

Customer Reviews

Less heavy BUT more diverse AND catchier!

For the record, Ghost has said in interviews that they do not consider themselves a metal band.

"Conservative" metal-heads are gonna find this album WEAK to DECENT. That is if you ONLY listen to metal. I respect that.

But if you listen to other styles of music outside of metal, like The Beatles, The Doors, Klaus Schulze or even DEAD CAN DANCE, then you'll likely enjoy this album more- because you'll hear those styles in the songs. Ghost has said to even be fans of The Beach Boys and Echo & The Bunnymen interestingly enough.

To me it's a much more dynamic record. Don't get me wrong, I love Opus Eponymous. That album is about a pending doom to come, so it had to sound dark and heavy like a storm front.

Infestissumam or (The Greatest Threat/ Hostility) is about the arrival of evil and how history has personified Sin & Temptation as female entities- therefore this record to sound more delicate and sultry by being more upbeat and colorful.

Great and easy listen like Opus Eponymous! I can only imagine what direction GHOST no#3 is going to be!

Have fun with this one. Cheers.

No Guilt

This band can craft a candy coated evil tune with a hook.

Get over yourself and drink the wine.


I was fortunate enough to listen to the complete album yesterday. It blew me away!!! I loved their first album Opus, but this album blows the first album away!!! Highly recommend!!!!


Formed: 2008 in Linköping, Sweden

Genre: Metal

Years Active: '00s, '10s

A band rife with contradictions, Sweden's Ghost preach extreme Satanic viewpoints over surprisingly lightweight heavy metal, and its members maintain a strict vow of anonymity, both on record and on-stage, where they obscure themselves under monks' cowls, except for their lead singer, whose skull-faced makeup, cardinal robes, miter and thurible reflect an anti-Pope, instead. As a result, the band's rare concerts come across like an occult ritual, and their 2010 debut album, Opus Eponymous, totally...
