Album 365: Day 189 - Ghost B.C. - Infestissumam

Ghost B.C.
Infestissumam
2013














Favorite tracks: Per Aspera Ad Inferi, Ghuleh/Zombie Queen, Year Zero
Sleeper tracks: Secular Haze

Let's get it straight.  I don't care about any bullshit US trademark violations.  They're still Ghost.

I spent the last 12 months anticipating this album.  I really thought it was going to be on par with their first record.  How could you miss with a bigger budget and a pretty good producer (Nick Raskulinecz)?

I was pretty disappointed when I heard the record.  There was some engineering issues and the songs didn't have the bite that the ones from the first album did.  I don't know...I guess I'll keep listening.  Maybe when I go see them live in a couple weeks it will change my attitude about the record.  As it stands, it's a good 2nd record but not as good as I thought it should be.
