Opus Eponymous (2010), 4.5/10
Infestissumam (2013), 4/10
Meliora (2015), 5/10
Prequelle (2018), 4/10

Swedish sextet Ghost (NOT the great Japanese band Ghost) indulged in Satanic themes inspired by the glorious black-metal school of Scandinavia on Opus Eponymous (Rise Above, 2010), but their mediocre skills and non-existent inspiration were hardly capable of matching its achievements. The litanies of the album constitute not much of an improvement over Aphrodite's Child's 40-years old 666 or Blue Oyster Cult. This music wouldn't scare a two-year-old child. The best moment comes perhaps with the Yes-style instrumental closer Genesis.

This debut was followed by the even more commercial Infestissumam (2013), whose memorable song is closer Monstrance Clock, and the mellow EP If You Have Ghosts (2013).

The guitars returned frontstage on Meliora (2015), nonetheless still an album of conventional pop-metal or, in fact, bland faux-metal (Cirice). Then came the EP Popestar (2016) and the album Prequelle (2018), with the singles Rats and Dance Macabre but also the equally catchy Pro Memoria. The single Seven Inches of Satanic Panic (2019) contains two songs, Kiss the Go-Goat and Mary on a Cross, Ghost seemed to aim to become the metal version of Abba, but they didn't have a tenth of the talent.
