ghost opus eponymous

So, the song begins fine but the chorus does bore me, quite honestly. At this point a simple Google search will give you an idea as to who he may or may not be. I remember I was listening to Mercyful Fate’s famous self titled EP when I got my hands on this and what followed next? Boy, does this album get a lot of hate from some hard-asses out there The songs are so vapid and hollow; it perplexes me how they got so high in fame as to play alongside Slayer and Iron Maiden, but I digress.

If this is the grand sacramental observance by which the adversary hopes to storm the gates of heaven, it’s not hard to see why St. With the progenitors and practitioners of Satanism residing largely in the deadly serious realm of black metal, Ghost seem more imposter than intermediary.

All songs have the similar compositions. Utilizing a rather limited, yet comfortable range, Ghost has created a windows down, stereo up, highway driving, Satanic sing along.

Does that save this album, or band, because of it? In the end, there is a track called Genesis, consisted of many fast arpeggios, escalating and falling all throughout this thrilling track.

Perhaps no debut album of was hyped more than Ghost’s Opus Eponymous.

There’s really no conceivable way how and why this is so beloved over other eponymus out there that deserve more credit, exposure and whatnot, the way I see it. Not only are they talented in coming up with somewhat Euro vocal melodies, the way they harmonize them are also impressive.


ShadoekingFebruary 16th, The atmosphere of horror and darkness probably could be compared to that of Mercyful Fate, but I ghostt the band sounds a lot more like ‘s rock bands such as Blue Oyster Cult, a group I have enjoyed for a long time.

No pop band could ever make those lyrics sound good or have that precise musicianship. Many arguments dponymous been made for and against Sweden’s latest metallic superstar Ghost, but there is no denying that they place a rather refreshing spin on the re-risen popularity of traditional doom and heavy metal by refining it with a tinge of 70s pop rock influence, in particular the faux occult stylings of artists like Black Widow or the late 60s Coven.

They are not an extreme metal band by any stretch of the imagination but they do borrow some elements from death and oous metal. The intro is an organ piece which, at first, wouldn’t sound out of place in a church until it become much darker.

gbost In this case, there is no energy at all. The corpse painted singer with satanic themes is a ripoff of well you know. And yet, the cheesy Satan lyrics simply bring early Mercyful Fate to mind. I opud that that was what they were going for. And that song just screamed ‘cover’. It is rare indeed for a metal band who sings about the kind of topics found on this album to also feature such stunningly clean vocals.

Opus Eponymous

Heavy metal doom metal hard rock [1]. Whenever the chorus begins, it makes me listen to Petersson singing Abgail or Melissa. Then I showed them ghlst opening riff to ‘Stand by Him’. The keys float inconspicuously, never fighting for sonic space, and consistently providing atmosphere. All to ghos, they end up being some trendy band with a gimmick and no real talent. Yes Papa Emeritus does have a moderate range, but at times it just seriously feels like the notes he hits or the sounds he generates with his voice do not fit the music at all get a load of the overly nerdy and nasally singing style he does in the intro for “Stand by Him” and if that isn’t enough, he uses a studio effect on his voice to give it this echo-ing effect which makes the music sound a little awkward at times.


The guitarists groove out easy, chiming riffs like doom bands from metal’s upbringing; nothing perfect, yet certainly easy to digest and good for head-bobbing. Of course, the score is not unblemished. Vocally, Ghost invokes the power of the Dark Lord with major key harmonies that would make Crosby, Stills, and Nash proud. Sadly, the same thing can be said about each song.

Ghost came out of the dark foreboding darkness with their first offering entitled Opus Eponymous.

At that, however, it cost them a numerous amount of integrity in my eyes, and lost a fraction of overall creativity through its songwork. Wind as the keyboardist. Introspection Late Night Partying. Both the creepy melodies and catchy choruses keep my interest the whole album through. Epontmous are a mysterious band from Sweden with anonymous band members that play a mixture of early heavy or doom epobymous mixed with some psychedelic rock influences and lyrics about demons, occultism and Satanism.
