Album 365: Day 22 - Ghost - Opus Eponymous

Opus Eponymous

Favorite tracks: Con Clavi con Dio, Ritual, Satan Prayer
Sleeper tracks: Elizabeth, Stand By Him

Probably the best way to celebrate Halloween (even though it's sunny out as I write this)

I learned about Ghost through my friend Clint.  He sent me a YouTube link to a show they did.  I was totally blown away by the stage show and really dug the music.  It frustrated me that a week prior, the band played in St. Paul.  Clint and I were rewarded earlier this summer by being able to see them open for Mastodon.  It was a great show and I'm glad I was able to add the band to my favorite concerts list.

I wish Ghost would have been around when I was in junior high.  The whole 'nobody knows who they are' mystique would have been a trip at that age. I could see myself buying a huge Ghost tapestry to hang in the bedroom.

They're best described as a mix of Blue Oyster Cult and Mercyful Fate.  I hope they're second release comes out before Album: 365 is finished.

Thanks Clint. I owe you one.
