The first album had a bunch of great, catchy songs.
JS
While lyrically this album remains firmly rooted in Satanism, we find the music itself has become a lot less heavy and more melodic.

I think that essentially everybody who liked the first album will love this one as well.

I'm not going to spend time beating a dead horse about how great their first album was. Instead I'm going to write about how great THIS album is! It appears (so far) that people either love it, hate it or think it falls short compared to their first album. I think it surpasses their first album. The new album is Ghost becoming Ghost. The first album had a bunch of great, catchy songs. But Infestissumam is the direction I was hoping Ghost would take. If I were to describe this album to someone unfamiliar with the band I would tell them to imagine if Rosemary's Baby was a play performed inside a circus where everyone was tripping on LSD and then you might have an idea what to expect. Everything has been improved upon. The sound, the multi-layered and complexity of the songs creates the ideal atmosphere for the listener. Some songs do take a little longer to grow on you than others but the entire album is good. Definitely not a filler track to be found. And while the obvious choices for the first singles: Secular Haze & Year Zero are excellent I feel the real gems are Ghuleh/Zombie Queen & Monstrance Clock.
I noticed many people refer to the opening track as comparable to the opening track from their first album. I disgree. Yes, it's the intro and yes it's an instrumental but I feel it picks up where Genesis left off...and I see a concept even bigger than ONE album which I'll get to in a minute.
Other highlights for me are Per Aspera Ad Inferi and Depth of Satan's Eyes. Both are very gothic, sinister and charming. This is where Black Metal/Death Metal whatever the hell it's called these days fails. When you start off screaming your @$$ off and playing as fast as humanly possible right out of the gate with no direction you lose your appeal. Where do you go from there?

As a youth minister, I'm always looking for new, exciting music to play for the kids. We had a road trip coming up last month so I ordered this a few days in advance. The kids enjoyed singing the tunes. Johnathan particularly enjoyed the campy, yet moody sounds of "Monstrous Clock." Little Ashley had a ball singing along to the oh-so-melodic "Body and Blood." But for me, my favorite song, hands down, was "Depth of Satan's Eyes." I love this band and appreciate all that they are doing. If we don't warn kids about satan, who will? Looking to book them for Easter next year!!!

God bless, y'all!

After months of speculation, controversy and sheer hype, we finally have the new album from Swedish band Ghost - or Ghost B.C. as they're calling themselves in the US. Ghost, of course, made a huge splash with their 2011 debut Opus Eponymous, and since its release their buzz has only increased, leading to a reported seven-figure deal on a major label. Naturally, expectations were very high going into their sophomore album, which is titled Infestissumam. Fans of the debut weren't exactly put at ease when the first single - "Secular Haze" was released. It's heavy use of circus-like organ seemed like a huge departure from the simple, catchy retro metal of the debut. Well, if "Secular Haze" threw fans for a loop, the rest of Infestissumam will definitely have some jaws dropping.

The formula for Opus Eponymous was simple - retro sounding heavy metal that sounded more or less like King Diamond writing lyrics for a Blue Oyster Cult album (with a bit of Angel Witch-y NWOBHM for good measure). The easiest thing for Ghost to do here is serve up another 8-9 catchy Satanic rockers to satisfy their fans. Instead, the band reached even further back into `70s prog and even `60s rock for an album that is both catchy and complex, and for all its Satanic trappings is a layered, progressive and perhaps even artistically brilliant work.

Opus Eponymous was effective for a reason, and Ghost hasn't forgotten that here. Infestissumam still has a handful of catchy heavy metal songs like "Jigolo Har Megiddo," "Depth of Satan's Eyes" and especially "Year Zero" that should satisfy the way "Satan Prayer" and "Death Knell" did.

There's something about Ghost where I can listen to the same album repeatedly all day long and never get bored of it. I did that with Opus Eponymous and now I've got Infestissumam on repeat.

It's a very enjoyable album, just as the first one was. Someone in the band has great song-writing skills and it shows. I love their chord changes/progressions and different changeups. It's more than just a collection of cool metal riffs, you can tell they really take their time trying to craft a good solid song. And I hope Ghost realizes that their strong point is their music and not the image. The image is fun, but I hope they continue to focus on great song writing and don't start relying on image alone (I'm sure it's tempting, many have done it before).

I love this album, but I must say that it seems like the last 3 or 4 tracks or so aren't nearly as good as the first half of the album. It looses its momentum a bit and it seems like the band is experimenting with a couple ideas, but it misses the mark just a bit. An example of something I didn't think quite worked was the female choir type part (2:00 in) in Depth of Satan's Eyes. I like that they're experimenting and trying different things but that one particular moment didn't quite work for me.

One other minor miss for me is the ending of Zombie Queen. I love how it ends except for the last second, where they just hit the 2 notes to finish. They should have either faded it out or chosen a different 2 notes or something. Something about it seems slightly off.

All in all though, this is a great album, and it's definitely worth purchasing. If I had to compare it to the first album, I'd say the first one was a 10/10 and this one might be a 9/10, only because I didn't think the second half was as solid. But it still kicks ass. I'm already looking forward to Ghost's next album! Keep giving us some great tunes!
