Music speaks to every soul. Wild souls feel it that way... dance under the moon, prayer to the tree god... and the sound of drum, in the distance. Music of the freedom.

Here we have the first Papa Emeritus introduced πŸ™‚ The album wasn’t first I have heard from them but just after listening to Infestissumam, I grabbed at Opus, so it’s kind of I listened
to both albums at the same time. I love it! The atmospheric light mood opposed by dark lyrics create a great combination. I think that after Opus Eponymous I will never need black metal vocals as much as before, to feel real darkness around haha.

Not everyone knows but the chorus in Satan Prayer is very similiar to theme music from Asterix vs Caesar, an old french animation I used to love as kid – thus, this song is my fave as I always loved that theme!
Ritual has amazing lyrics – I would never think I would cheer for bloody sacrifice so much. Other highlights are also Con Clavi Con Dio and Stand by Him.

Overall, great debut album, with quality and great music from the very beginning. Tobias voice is especially great at Opus and I think he really wanted to make a grand enter with Ghost with this album πŸ™‚

Also, the album artwork is amazing, the blue color somehow fit the mood of the music. Plus it gives a feeling of an old manor where a satanic believers sacrifice innocents and the Great Papa watches above them… and then strikes a thunder and the bats fly from the battlements πŸ˜‰

My rating: 9.4/10

Favorite song: Satan Prayer
