One of the best

I just recently found this band after seeing one of the guys on That Metal Show wearing a t-shirt. Listened to a few song samples and was possessed into buying both albums. Ghost is one of the best and most original bands I have heard in years. I don't see them being the 'next big thing' in metal as some have said, mostly due to humans being addicted to crappy lyrics, cookie cutter riffs and tattooed emo dudes trying to emulate napalm death and slipknot. Ghost is a talented bunch of ghouls attempting to convert all of us into followers with their sweetly evil music. So far it is working.

Ghost Makes Their Case

For those looking for a heavier Ghost album, you will be disheartened to know they recorded one of the best rock albums of the past decade. All of that aside, this band is the future big name act of metal. Once Metallica and Maiden and the other massive metal acts call it quits there are virtually zero big name acts to continue this genre on that scale. That is, until Ghost reaches the masses and entrances their audience with infectious hooks and addictive chorus arrangements. In a genre where songwriting is a lost art, these men cultivate one of the most thought out and highly influential albums in a very long time focusing solely on creating great music. The Satanism and costumes are a front for a shockingly talented band that understands how to hook their listeners. The first listen of this album keeps the listener at arms length, much like the first EP Opus Eponymous. Yet once again they craft an album that sparks curiosity in the listener to give the album another go around, and then another and by the end of the 4th time listening to it you will understand how a song like Ghuleh/Zombie Queen works on every level. The intro into Per Aspera Ad Inferi picks up right where the last album left off and provides what should be a solid opening for a live show. Secular Haze has been out for months so you all know the drill. Jigolo Har Megiddo sounds like the last great Boston track that was never recorded. Ghuleh/Zombie Queen is their version of Comfortably Numb and it works on every level. It is like once you finally get it you have stared Satan in the eyes and received his lustful spirit. Year Zero is this album's Ritual as it provides an excellent sound with a catchy hook. Body and Blood will take 2-3 listens to get used to but is a catchier number. Same goes for Idolatrine yet this one has been stuck in my head and is beautiful. Depth of Satan's Eyes is a sinister tune that sounds like it was from the last album yet proves to show more growth. Monstrance Clock closes out the album with an Alice Cooper-like intro into one of the best pure rock/metal songs in years chanting for the coming of the antichrist. This song is an excellent listen and wraps the album up perfectly.

Infestissumam provides one of those rare moments in the metal genre when you know that you are beholden to something special. This album will reach the masses and become one of the best albums of the year. This is the start of something much bigger for this band and for them it seems as though the sky is the limit.Viva Papa Emeritus II!

Album Title Is Correct

They had to change their name in the US for legal (copyright) reasons to "Ghost B.C.".

Great band...great music!
