GHOST - Opvs Eponymovs CD
Their first opus.
'It's musically smart in the way that metal should be spooky, evil, with just a dash of 'do you think these guys are serious?' Even if Ghost weren't espousing the glories of a certain dark lord, the songs would still hold up beautifully, which should be an indication of how strong OPUS EPONYMOUS is.' --Metal-Rules.com
Ritual is one of the best classic metal songs in recent memory...This is must-have stuff, essential for those who have long worshipped at the altar of classic Mercyful Fate. --Blistering.com
Live, they re a striking sight: five robed, hooded, anonymous musicians churning away, the similarly nameless, face-painted singer garishly adorned in vestments and miter, clutching a chain thurible filled with burning incense. He s a beelzebubian bishop, a pagan pontiff. It might look corny, but there s no wink, no sense of irony. Rather than trying to look evil, his face is dead serious. He has stuff to say, and he means every word.' --PopMatters.com
