    2011 Record release of the Year for me...

    GHOST - "Opus Eponymous" 2010/2011

    Okay, so the record features purposefully over-the-top Satanic lyrics, classic 70s metal/rock riffs and singable choruses. The mastermind is Tobias Forge (formerly of the Magna Carta Cartel, Subvision and Repugnant) who basically shifts music styles towards the money.

    (Side note, came out late 2010 in Europe/Asia and hit the North American markets in January 2011.

    It's almost impossible to not hum the lyrics and then step back in hear them. For example the chorus of "Ritual" is a glorious...
    This chapel of ritual
    Smells of dead human sacrifices
    From the altar bed

    On this night of ritual
    Evoking our master
    To procreate the unholy bastard

    I posted a link to the Ghost cover of the Beatles classic - "Here Comes the Sun" which is featured as a bonus track on the Japanese CD pressing. Live, they open the song up with 2 minutes of a baby crying and just blow away whatever semblance of a cheerful song that the Beatles could evoke.

    I'm usually not one for the more melodic side of metal, but this is pretty damn good.

    Comeback album of the year goes to Korn for me.

    Bumping up a nearly 9 year old thread here....mainly to thank [MENTION=2209]200lbhockeyplayer[/MENTION] for getting me into Ghost literally because of this thread back in 2011. Since then, they have become one of my top 3 favorite bands. Crazy to think how not publicized their identities stayed for so long. I was finally able to go to my first ritual in Seattle last September, which was a blast to say the least. REALLY wish I had to see them with all 3 different Papa's but The Cardinal was still amazing to watch, and I can't wait to see how the last show in Mexico goes down, hopefully showing us or hinting more-so on who/what Papa IV is to be.

    So 200lbhockeyplayer - THANK YOU for getting me on board with this band so long ago!!!
