Ghost - Rats

I found out that they're from Sweden but haven't heard of these guys before. Anyway, the new song is pretty awesome.

I've heard a couple songs of theirs in the past, but never really got into them.  From what I've seen, their songs revolve around Satan as do their costumes and stage shows.  Kind of like a modern version of King Diamond, but more tongue in cheek, and more diverse musically

Great band...Quite varied style wise, with a heady mix of Pop/Rock/Doom Metal with big, hooky choruses and a definite Sabbath,  Blue Oyster Cult reference in their sound. Here's another brilliant track from their 4th album 'Prequelle' released on Friday

This new track is catchy and has far more of a pop feel than the songs I've heard.  I recall them being heavier and more theatrical with a much darker lyrical theme like Mercyful Fate/King Diamond.

These fellas are the clowns of the doom rock camp. Nobody talks about Blood Ceremony or Devil Electric but this band. As for me I fuckin' hate this pop garbage. :)

I've never listened to them until I heard this song, and I actually like it. Not what I imagined they should sound like at all. So I tried to check them out a bit, but they are confusing the hell out of me. How many personalities does the singer have? He's been four popes and now he is a cardinal?

Been spinning the new album pretty much continuously over the past couple of days..These guys get better and better with each subsequent release, with  'Prequelle' being absolutely top notch all the way through. It's more  varied, 'accessible' and dare I say it 'poppy' than previously, but that is no bad thing in my book. Definitely one of the best this year by far and a quite superb album

Really? I was just about to look into checking them out, but you suggest these two are the only decent songs on the album? 

I like these two songs, but something about them keeps me at a distance. But I'm still curious.

it's a grower but those are the 2 most accessible tracks for me. 

I do like the song about death as well even if it is morbid

Haven't listened to the new album in its entirety, but Meliora has some great songs.

It's rare that I listen to a whole album in one sitting nowadays but Prequelle holds my interest throughout. Will defo give some of their other albums a listen

And now... the most epic thing ever: a synthwave remix of Dance Macabre. As much as I love the new Ghost album, I would kill for this sort of remix on more Ghost tracks.

    • Don't know what to make of that one. Not bad. 
    • That one is okay, but doesn't have me rushing to pre-order.
    • Hahaha the video is sad. Agree with the comments above, it must be his first ever video. Only the drummer looks cool in the video. That said, the most important thing is the song..and it is a very nice song. Ya again as you guys mentioned the chorus could have been better coz the verses are perfect but it is what it is...I ll take it.
    • No, it's definitely not. For the record, though; looking beyond what the media jams down your throat, I don't personally find him misogynistic to a degree that offends me at all; I sure as hell don't find him to be racist (seems like it's the go-to tag for someone who might just call a thing or two for what it is from time to time). As for being a liar... probably true, and that's different to absolutely zero politicians in all of history. Anyway, I agree... not the time or place. I actually hate politics and rubbish political discussions. But I hate the media more and I hate just going along with an opinion without thinking about it for yourself even more than the media!   
    • I can't for the life of me understand how someone can have any time for  a misogynistic, racist c*nt, who's a pathological liar, with so many skeletons in his closet that a plague burial ground would look threadbare in comparison. It has nothing to do with  sheep mentality. It has to do with having sound values in life.  But, we'd better leave it there, because this isn't a politics forum.     
    • Phenomena - The Complete Works (3 CD) The Answer - Raise A Little Hell (2 CD) The Answer - Revival (2 CD) Black Star Riders - The Killer Instinct (2 CD) The Amorettes - White Hot Heat Circle II Circle - The Middle Of Nowhere + 1 Crystal Pistol - s/t
    • Agreed. But if you have a view that makes you look really stupid and is something to be embarrassed about, probably best just to keep it to yourself and sing about vaginas instead. For example, if you follow a religion the worst thing in the world you can do, imo, is publicise it... especially in a song. It just makes you look stupid.  In. My opinion, of course. But it's the same with that stupid Kryptonite song, which is preaching to forsake all sense of logic and just allow every human being into everywhere. Australia only has 25 million people? WHAT?! Even though you can't move in the fucking place, let's let everyone in and have 50 million by the week's end!!! says mr singer of Kryptonite. Well I never had an issue with the guy at all in the past, but now I look at him different - in an irritating, stupid kind of way. Anyway, to each their own. Everyone's got their own view n' stuff, but it just seems to sound even more stupid in a song if you have a view that is very polarising.  As for my percentage on who has a problem or not with Trump... I agree. I probably did get that wrong. Much more than 50% of people are sheep and follow what their favourite celebrity or the media is telling them without actually thinking for themselves. For the record, I don't really have much of an opinion on Trump because I don't care enough about it all to get involved. But I definitely like him more than I dislike him and think the outcry against him is just a pathetic banquet of sheep falling over themselves to fit in. Personally.
    • 50 % (50+ even!)have no issue with Trump? Seriously doubt those numbers, but ok, then the lyrics shouldn't bother them either. It only bothers those who like him, I would say.  The arts is a great way to express ideas, ideals etc. Artists shouldn't censor themselves just because some might disagree.  To only listen/read/talk to stuff/people you agree with is stupid.
