Amoeba Review

08/19/2015

With their horned masks, face paint and “demonic anti-Pope” frontman Papa Emeritus III at the helm, Ghost are back with a third album that balances the group’s metal assault with tunefulness rooted in classic rock. “Spirit” kicks off the album with chugging guitars and propulsive drums (is that Ghost supporter Dave Grohl back there?), while Papa whisper-sings about “cloven hooves” and other creepy things, while his “nameless ghouls” provide harmonic guitar lines that are frankly gorgeous, especially among synthesized choral vocals that ring in the background. Tracks like “From the Pinnacle to the Pit” rock harder, heavy but not overbearing, with Zeppelinesque riffs and clenched-teeth menace. “Cirice” calls to mind middle-era Metallica with its combination of acoustic guitars, gnarled riffs and melodies that are pretty catchy and pop-oriented, when you really dig into them. That speaks to Ghost’s strength — while they clearly speak metal’s language, their music is all-inclusive, appealing both to classic metal fans and young heavy rock fans. Meliora is truly a metal album that has something for everyone.
