I can only assume the new Ghost record leaked recently, because last night, my Facebook feed lit up with caustic criticism of the new disc, saying it was “over” for the band so many love and so many others love to hate.
After listening to the song that follows at the end of this post, I can only imagine how shitty Infestissuman — out next week — must be.
The song is called “Monstrous Clock,” and really, I can’t put it any other way than it’s awful.
The first Ghost record was flawless from first note to last. Perhaps perfection is impossible two times in a row, but dude…this song is fucking weak shit.
I am not really looking forward to this record now at all, especially considering this song is the closer.
You finish with your strongest stuff usually, no? Or is it the other way around with records, and you cap things off with the shit?
I can’t remember. This song is almost cliche.
But I am bummed. This is what happens when hipsters get a hold of metal bands. Happened with Mastodon and now, Ghost too.
