GHOST - Opvs Eponymovs LP
First opus! Reissue, Repress, Gatefold.
GHOST is the name of a devil worshipping ministry, that in order to spread their unholy gospels and, furthermore, trick mankind into believing that the end is ultimately a good thing, have decided to use the ever so popular rock music medium as a way to achieve their ends. Standing motionless and anonymous beneath the painted faces, hoods and robes which their sect demand, the six nameless ghouls of Ghost deliver litanies of sexually pulsating heavy rock music and romantic lyrics, that glorify and glamorise the disgusting and sacrilegious, with the simple intention to communicate a message of pure evil via the most effective device they can find - entertainment. In May 2010 Ghost were contracted to Rise Above Records, who swore an oath, stating that they will assist the group in the task of spreading their musical blasphemies. The first full-length Ghost album Opus Eponymous will be released in October 2010 and is a daringly beautiful combination of Satanic rock music with an almost unthinkable pop sensibility. This is Black Metal at it's most original and deceiving; gasp as tracks such as Ritual and Death Knell majestically weave their melodic spell of evil through the senses until you become utterly possessed. Specific attention will be paid to targeting people (research suggests these are most likely to be adolescents) who have a void in their life, perhaps caused by some form of emotional trauma or upset, that can be filled by the music and philosophies of Ghost. In time, these easily manipulated children will come to share the views and goals of the Ghost sect and can prepare their own plans for the downfall of humanity....
