2011 EU repressing on vinyl LP-This is black metal at its most original and deceiving; compositions which majestically weave their melodic spell of evil through the senses until the listener finds themselves utterly possessed and open to any diabolical suggestion. Originally issued in 2010, debut full-length, Opus Eponymous, offers up a daringly beautiful combination of satanic rock music with an almost unthinkable pop sensibility.

Tracks:
A1 Deus Culpa
A2 Con Clavi Con Dio
A3 Ritual
A4 Elizabeth
A5 Stand By Him

B1 Satan Prayer
B2 Death Knell
B3 Prime Mover
B4 Genesis

Ghost’s debut full-length turned the metal world on its ear, by checking every fundamental box associated with the genre: Satanic lyrics, staccato guitar riffs, ghoulish visuals – everything except for the "heavy" part. Instead of belting out “Hail Satan!,” Papa Emeritus sweetly crooned to his “Elizabeth” then quietly said his “Satan Prayer.” And rather than bulldozing with deafening distortion, the nameless Ghouls plucked tender melodies at the start of “Ritual,” punched lush keys on “Stand By Him” and layered golden harmonies on “Con Clavi Con Dio” and other tracks. Astonishingly fresh, to say the least, ‘Opus Eponymous’ justifiably catapulted Ghost out of the underground.

====

Ghost is the name of an anonymous devil worshipping ministry, that in order to spread its unholy gospels and, furthermore, trick mankind into believing 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, which glorify and glamorize the disgusting and sacrilegious, with the simple intention to communicate a message of pure evil via the most effective device they can find: Entertainment.

This is black metal at its most original and deceiving; compositions which majestically weave their melodic spell of evil through the senses until the listener finds themselves utterly possessed and open to any diabolical suggestion. Originally issued in 2010, debut full-length, Opus Eponymous, offers up a daringly beautiful combination of satanic rock music with an almost unthinkable pop sensibility.
