Today we shall address the band Ghost or Ghost B.C. To be clear, I honestly don’t know what they go by because one minute they are Ghost and the other moment they are referred to as Ghost B.C. They are in fact on the Metal-Archives: http://www.metal-archives.com/bands/Ghost/3540309157 and that is where my love and I stumbled upon them.
So let’s get started with this review!
When you first listen to this band, you’d think you were back in the times of Iron Butterfly… even their music videos remind me of Black Sabbath’s cheese factor from back in the day. The band is full of nameless ghouls except for the singer who is Papa Emeritus II. For present day, their sound is unique and these Swedish fellas know how to be satanic, evil, and dark. In a way, they raise the hairs on your arms because you listen to the music and his voice… it sounds almost super cheerful. As if it were to brainwash you to join some cult or as a matter of fact, if this was the 1980s with the PMRC… I think this band would have been blamed for everything and they probably do have hidden messages in their lyrics that might sound evil but might be just like “Vilda, go make me a sandwich.”
Kinda art-rocky but not overboard art rocky where you want to be Andy Warhol.
I think it’s a refreshing band to emerge in today’s world of music. Check them out below:
