So, new album coming out. I pre-ordered so I just got Year Zero. Full album should be tomorrow.

It's been streaming for a week. It's quite good. Songwriting, production, and performance are all steps up from the self-titled, imo. I've only listened to it once but I'll definitely be listening to it more, and I really like it (albeit slightly less ever since one of my bandmates pointed out that "Secular Haze" musically rips off King Diamond fairly obviously).

I like it less than the first album. I feel like they're trying a variety of sounds and approaches instead of the focused sound they had in the first album. The new one is still good but I'm having to adjust a little bit.

The second album is definitely messier in the songwriting department. Sound-wise it seems like they've grown and developed, but it didn't translate structurally - had they tightened it up the album would have sounded a lot better.

I don't think it deserves some of the harsh criticism that it got, particularly from those who liked the first album.

Had a listen to the second album. Never heard them before, and I have no idea what the hell I just listened to. Bunch of dudes in black metal outfits playing Blue Oyster Cult riffs with circus keyboards? So very lame. Not bad, just really, really, really lame. It's like they couldn't quite decide on a joke to stick to, so they just half-arsed all of it.

Also, no breakdowns, so... you know. Failure from the word go.

Honestly Ghost just annoys me at this point. I wont listen to the second album. The first is woefully unoriginal, but has some catchy moments. This sounds not promising at all...

And I'm also just really tired of all their publicity stunts. That's literally the point of almost everything they do it seems - the point was always to become a cult, popular band, not to actually write great music or anything.

I think what annoys me most is actually the production on the new album. I could hear myself actually enjoying this, but it has zero punch. No energy, no life, no soul (although that's probs appropriate ololol). Just "happens". Clean production with absolutely no power to it. Weird.

I could agree with that. I'm enjoying it a lot but it's very flat. The vocals aren't as good in a lot of areas. I'm hoping a middle point is reached next album.

I enjoy how theatrical Ghost is. It's all very silly and I enjoy that when so many Metal bands have a very serious persona. I enjoy some people in cultist robes with cheesy music videos.

Seeing people in robes on stage, who take themselves seriously, are some of the best metal musicians on the planet. There is dedication behind their shrouded figures, one that Ghost mock because they lack content.

Tbh, I actually enjoyed the production on the new one more than their debut. A lot of it has to do with the guitar tone, which I thought was vary weak and lacking in depth on the debut and is vastly improved upon here, even though nothing particularly interesting is going on with the production overall. I'd still give the album like an 8/10 or so.

Infestissumam is slightly better then Opus Eponymous to me at the moment although I love both. Repeat listens to their new album is just great.

Well, you were typing. I don't think there's another way to do it, Magero.

Summed it up nicely for me. I listened to one of their songs and saw how every article about them involves some new stunt they've pulled. Their whole goal seems to be mocking Black Metal and playing music that belongs on a carnival ride.

I love carnival-like music

Anyway, I saw Ghost earlier this year at Australia's Soundwave Music Festival.
It was extremely weird to see them on a metal stage and unfortunately they were booed throughout their whole show. Probably 'cause of the outfits and the way the vocalist talked to the crowd. Still, I loved listening to it myself, the songs do lack those 'breakdowns' or at least a Rise and Fall of some sort.

I think maybe if they get more serious they could have something really good, I see potential.
