    Have Ghost lost their damn minds? I always knew their stuff was a bit tongue in cheek but the new EP really pushes it over the edge. The Eurythmics and Imperiet covers are hilarious albeit good.

    Any Ghost fans here? What are your thoughts and general Ghost stories/impressions. Here's the Imperiet cover...

    Not my favorite release by the band, but I'm not surprised by any of the songs choices tbh and I guess that's why I like them so much. I put it on when I'm cooking after a long day.

    When this came out there was also alot of WTF going on:

    I'm not a fan of the album but it may grow on me with time. There were times Tobias...I mean Papa has had vocals that sound Weird Al-ish like Idolatrine but the album is pretty heavy on that sound for me

    I've been following them from the beginning, but it seems they are really starting to explode in popularity. I just watched them play a sold out show in Seattle, and it was an incredible show. The crowd sang a long to every song, they sounded great, and had an incredible stage show. It really seems like they are about to hit the big time. They are playing them on the radio often here and there unique mix of Metal, classic rock, pop, and numerous other genre's, brings in a diverse mix of people. They have an early KISS like mystique with the band members hiding their identities, With the frontman being identified as Papa Emeritus, and the other 5 band members who are the Nameless Ghouls.

    They have had 2 hit singles this year, won a Grammy and appeared on the late show.

    I've seen them twice and they were amazing both times. Besides their fantastic full length albums, I love their cover EP's.

    They're fiendishly marvelous. Always have this in 240p for the proper atmosphere.

    I love that they can take pop songs and make them into evil rock tunes. It's awesome.

    I've been listening to them for a few years now. Ritual is catchy as fuck.

    I need to revisit them. I was a bit turned off by the way the singer fucked over the rest of the band and claimed full ownership. Also I'm not 100% sure their music stands on its own without the costume gimmick.

    Love the new tune. I was a bit apprehensive about Cardinal Copia and the direction, but fuck man, I love Ghost. Got my tickets to the show in St Paul, MN on June 1st. Can't wait.
