This record sounds like ABBA got way into Salman Rushdie, tattooed pentagrams on their arms, and decided to write an album praising the beast with many names.
Sing out “Hail Satan!” and frighten your neighbors.
Heavy, dark, growling black metal. This record is full of anger and angst and rage.
There is a lightheartedness to the music that makes it great to turn up loud and lose yourself in the 80s glam.
Popestar sounds like nothing else in music right now.
It is doom metal lite: all the evil, half the calories.
It is a fun listen because Ghost really sucks you into their thematic theatrical arena and makes you feel as though the Crowned Princes of Hell are preparing to come out of your speakers……..or something like that.
