Epic doom metal. The exact opposite of church worship songs.
It’s not perfect, but it is pretty good.
Is doom alternative a thing?
How does it sound? Ugh. Awful.
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.
Popestar sounds like nothing else in music right now.
It sounds like the soundtrack to a heavy metal haunted house.
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.
If Rush did the soundtrack for Phantom of the Opera it would sound like Meliora from Ghost.
