Never really listened to Ghost before, but just heard Square Hammer recently and it's been stuck in my head ever since.

Worth checking out the recent album then. Full of memorable melodies and Abba worship. Better vocals and sound too than that Square Hammer song. Actually one of my fave records from last year to be honest.

This little gem really set's up the hype for their next LP, that hopefully will come around sometime soon! Dat chorus, so damn infectious. Kind of similar to Absolution on Meliora.

Have had Square Hammer stuck in my head a lot over the past few weeks. Chorus is infectious.

Square Hammer is so infectious that it made into Headbangers Ball show on VH1 in India.

Pretty surprising considering how I always thought you hated Ghost especially with this comment on their last record.

Quote:

Well, their debut still had a smidgeon of metal in it. But you're right that the previous one also didn't have any metal in it. yes, the newest is as catchy as the measles and the plague and ebola combined.


But yeah their last full length was easily their best and I tried a few tracks off their first 2 records and neither the sound or the songwriting is as good as Meliora. Will have to listen to this ep soon.
