Okay, so think Mercyful Fate meets Blue Oyster Cult, sprinkle in a little Candlemass and Black Sabbath, and you have Ghost from Sweden. Check these guys out. I just got their debut OPUS EPONYMOUS. It is awesome!!

I've had this for awhile now. Great band!!! Mercyful Fate meets Blue Oyster Cult is a dead on description. The lyrics are on the satanic side. So, if that sort of thing bugs you, you may not like them.

They sound so awesome. The lyrics are funny and/or vile, depending on how you wanna look at it Smile

The vocals harmonies are awesome, very well arranged. It's so nice to hear actual hooks and melodies and clean vocal delivery.

I'm going to go pick this up tomorrow...

Yea, I've been keeping an eye on these guys. It's on my want-list. Like what I've heard and read some really good things about them. Hail Satan!

Love this album. Last track "Genesis" has really gotten me into Goblin over the last month.

Great sound and even though the lyrics are campy I'd still rather not buy this because of the lyrics.

A few years back I was on a serious retro kick, but kind of burnt myself out on the style. The ridiculous import prices didn't help, either. But I still listen to most those bands all the time.

I think I need to dip back into that style again, though.

From what I've heard it has a bit of a Black Widow sound, as well.

Picture it without the flute....

... and I should have found a better example. They do have four albums worth of material. That's what I get for being lazy. Smile

I would really like to give this a shot but the reference to Satanic lyrics puts me off. Just how blatantly Satanic are they?

Much tamer than your average Slayer song. You have to look at the lyrics like they are dialogue from a Peter Cushing movie.

here's an example:


Tonight we're summoned for a divine cause
Remembrance - No
But for their future loss

This chapel of ritual
Smells of dead human sacrifices
From the altar...

Beduins and nomads
Carried through the times
Through pestilences and famines
These ancient scrolls of rhymes

"Our fallen angel vexed
Was banished from the sky
Recite now from the text
Pray for ALL to die"

This chapel of ritual
Smells of dead human sacrifices
From the altar bed
On this night of ritual
Invocing our master
To procreate the unholy bastard

"Our father
Who art in hell
Unhallowed be thy name
Cursed be the sons and daughters
Of thine Nemesis
Whom are to blame
Thy kingdom come
nemA"

Tonight we summoned for His unholy fiend
Now celebrate
The End

Had this for about 2 weeks now. Of the few 2011 release I've gotten so far, this one is gonna be tough to beat. It's good. The lyrical content doesn't bother me. Although I will be sacraficing a turkey sandwich at lunch to the dark lord of hunger.

Agreed. This album manages to achieve that elusive "greater than the sum of it's parts" sound which makes it feel epic.

I sacrificed some catnip this morning to the evil Pywacket.

I uploaded their Elizabeth EP and demo to the place where ye shall find an absence of zones, if you're interested.
