    So metal it doesn't need to be metal.

    On their second album 'Infestissumam' the Swedish doom/prog/metal concept band, Ghost, take their hyperbolic Satanic imagery and sound to new heights while exploring music that is often more melodic and complex than their stunning debut. The band continues with the thematic elements of Lucifer induced praise with even more wit, intellect and complicated theological in-jokes. To this they have added more complex arrangements, vocal harmonies and keyboards and a sound even more reminiscent of mid era Blue Oyster Cult and Queen. The combination is perfect. As rock and roll gets buried under the growing monstrosity of itself it needed something to truly stand out in the original spirit of rebellion. While the Satanism is hyperbolic to the extreme, it is also playful. It is scary, but scary like an episode of the original Scooby Doo and just as fun to boot. Those interested in the spirit of rock music should be able to put their beliefs aside and enjoy this for the fantastic well crafted yarn that it is. That Ghost ARE. If you haven't listened to Ghost yet it is about time you fire up the sacrificial altar, rustle up some virgins and let her rip, because you are in for one hell of a ride.

    Ghost's first album very Mercyful Fate like, which isn't a good thing since that style of metal sounds pretty dated these days. Their second release however, on their second release they've decided to go for a more 70's style of metal, at times I'm reminded of Blue Oyster Cult, which isn't a bad thing. However, while the band does sound better on this release, it suffers from a few things that just kill it. First off, there are a few tracks that suffer from poor mastering. There are a few tracks where the mastering is really bad and the highs and lows come off really messed up. But what really causes this release to suffer is that although the songs sound good, the lyrics go above and beyond corny. The whole cartoony satanic thing worked well for Ozzy back in the day but Ghost just takes it to a level that just makes it come off idiotic. In short, one is probably better off just buying a Weird Al album if they want comedy like lyrics, or Spectres by Blue Oyster Cult if they're looking for some really good classic 70's metal or the first Black Sabbath cd if they want that demonic edge.

    Blue Oyster Cult meets Mercyful Fate at David Bowie's recording studio in 1979. There, they worship the dark lord and listen to lots of Queen and try to write the catchiest pop hits they can, while still having loud guitars. The Moody Blues show up and do a jam with The Monkees. Whitesnake travels back in time to sacrifice a goat. Better than "Cats," would listen to again.

    I read an expert review and noted that this band would be superstars if not for the Satanic lyrics, Probably right. To me the lyrics are art and not to be taken seriously. I listen to this cd a lot.

    Excellent album. Different from the others from Ghost, but still the same enough to listen to several times without getting bored.

    I prefer the first album to this one, but it is worth a listen. Same easy going death metal sound as the first.
