You know, everyone compares them to Mercyful Fate but other than the vocals sounding vaguely like King Diamond's lower register they remind me more of Blue Oyster Cult.

Ghost's song Ritual = Mercyful Fate's Dangerous Meeting. But otherwise, I'd generally agree.

Here's an idea, don't name your band a shitty fucking na.....*looks at most of the other band names mentioned on this site*


....ok, it's not that bad of a name.

I hadn't checked these guys out before, despite hearing people either loving or hating them. I checked out some live videos, and I dig it But then, I usually am into really theatrical bands with pretentious mystery surrounding them

They're nowhere near as whacked out as BOC. Then again, who is?

I used to really like BOC. They were pretty awesome live.


Never heard of Ghost - after the replies to this thread I'm not sure if I want to bother :P
