New material from Ghost !! I can't be more happy.
The truth is that after their stunning third album Μeliora(2015) my expectations for something good in the future by Ghost were high .
They did not disappoint me!!
Popestar is the second EP from Swedish band Ghost.
The record was produced by Tom Dalgety.
In this Ep we find one new song ( "Square Hammer" ) and four cover songs.
"Square Hammer" : A f..ing great song by Ghost. Before i listen to other four thacks on this Ep this song was on repeat for a long time!!! Nothing more ,nothing less to say !!
Cover songs :
Not a song that usually a group would choose to cover but i like the way Ghost perform it.
No guitars on this one but only a light synth chorus and brushed drums.
"Missionary Man" : A song by Eurythmics back in 1986.
I really enjoyed the heavier version by Ghost.
"Well I was born an original sinner. I was born from original sin. And if I had a dollar bill For all the things I've done..."
I found Ghost's performance better than the original. That says it all.
In Conclusion :
It's a great release that everyone must have heard. I'm looking forward for Ghost's next step.
