Ghost - Infestissumam

by Angela "The Hunter" at 11 April 2013, 6:47 PM

GHOST, or GHOST B.C. depending on where you are at in the world, has definitely made its mark in music history. While the Doom Metal genre is overflowing with occult themed and straight up satanic bands, GHOST has put their own creative spin on their music with theatrical, almost campy stage shows, nameless band members, and yet stellar music. Check your religious ideologies at the door, they will do you no good here.

Steeped in Satanic worship, ritualistic ceremony, and good old fashion Doom, GHOST’s newest release is an excellent follow up to "Opus Eponymous". The album has everything from groove Metal laced with organ music, a moody bluesy ballad (of sorts) to driving Metal riffage accompanied by a choir (one simple does not write an album devoted to the worship of Satan without a choir). The theme of the album is not lost in the diversity of the music; some standout tracks are "Year Zero", "Zombie Queen", and "Monstrance Clock". Musically the album is very good, lyrics can be a little over the top but still intelligent, with Papa Emeritus II’s vocals still reigning strong.  Fans of GHOST will not be disappointed with the latest homage to the Dark one. For a rating I would say a 7 out of 10. Until next time, stay well, and live free!
