Pope died and we have new Pope. Papa Emeritus III is here to chant us and succeeds rather well since all listen carefully to his words.

Βut let's take it from the beginning...


Meliora (Latin for the pursuit of something better)is the third full-length album by Swedish heavy metal band Ghost. The album was produced by Klas Åhlund and released on August 21, 2015.

It marked the retiring of lead vocalist Papa Emeritus II, who was replaced by his younger brother, Papa Emeritus III.

Τhis is the best album of the Swedish band and one of the best albums of the year so far.

 In this album Ghost are experimenting in their music, mixing pop elements in their metal sound and judging by the results we can speak for a perfect result.

Meliora consists of 8 songs and two instrumentals ( Spöksonat, Devil Church ) that will satisfy even the most demanding listeners.


With this album they managed to make us devote more attention to music and less to their particular appearance.

Wonderful melodies, interesting lyrics, Pope wonderful chanting so what we would like more from an album?

 A must hear recording !! (You will want to listen Meliora again and again for sure i guarantee this!!)
