Normally, I don't fall in love with bands easily – I listen to a lot of bands, different music styles, but so far only Rammstein was that ONE special band that I adored with all my heart. When it comes to rock and metal, I just don't like giving my love to just anyone. And I purposely try not to listen to any new bands, simply because I don't want to like other bands. I'm feeling just perfect here, loving only Rammstein and the bands that I found many years ago and still like to this day. That's kind of stupid, I know, but I never tried to come across as a genius here.
Last month, out of utter boredom and curiosity, I searched for the Swedish band "Ghost", and I knew it was love from the first song I listened to.
I knew about the existence of this band for quite a long time now and kept telling myself I would never listen to a band making a mockery of religion in such a grotesque manner. And here I am now, waiting impatiently for the European leg of their tour.
My point is... Actually, there are two points I want to make: one - don't be prejudiced and two - if you haven't listened to Ghost yet, DO IT. They might not be everyone's cup of tea, their music sounds like very old heavy metal with a clean melodic vocal, and the main topic of the music is satanic, so you've been warned. Chill, they aren't actual Satanists, it's just a gimmick. I find the music amazing, they are fabulous musicians! I spend hours discovering new harmonies in their songs while drawing or travelling. I started backwards, with their newest EP and went to the very beginning of their career and loved everything. My fave albums have to be their newest ones - Meliora and the Popestar EP.
I already have 2 Ghost comics, and 4 on their way, but I am reluctant to publish them here because this is my Rammstein page. Should I publish here or make a new account?
Do not fear, Rammstein are still The Band, but Ghost are a super close second and I just wanted to share the word about them, albeit I am hopping on the bandwagon a bit late. I mean, the guys have been doing their mastery since 2010.
