With their third lp, Ghost really took off. This is the one that blew them up; their Master of Puppets, if you will. Filled with instant classics and live staples like Cirice, He Is, Mummy Dust, Absolution….this record is stacked.
And the videos for this record are phenomenal, too. Even if you dont like this band, check out the video for He Is. Its an absolute classic; a satirical stab to the heart of the hypocritical world of organized religion.
And yes I know the debut is their most metal record, with its awesome primitive production, and cool 70s occult vibe.
But Meliora is a mature monster…
