I'd heard a few tracks by "Ghost"
over the years, but most of their earlier stuff wasn't really to my taste. Then they released "Impera"
last year (March 2022) and I was hooked - BIG TIME !!! Blood-red vinyl was promptly ordered & delivered ( http://theclubhouse1.net/phpBB3/viewtop ... 6#p1445816
After this, I carried out a more serious examination of their back-catalogue, and while almost everything prior to 2018 is still not for me (excepting "Cirice"
& "Square Hammer"
), I discovered the previous album "Prequelle"
(from June 2018) is just as good as "Impera"
, so the 2 albums have been playing on repeat, back-to-back for many months now.
I also grew to appreciate the 2 tracks on their 2019 "Seven Inches"
EP (from which, "Mary on a Cross"
has since gone viral).
I'd been having trouble finding a reliable seller for the vinyl version of "Prequelle"
I wanted (gold/ash - limited to 2500 copies), but finally tracked a copy down. It arrived last Monday. Perfect condition
EASILY the most expensive piece of music I have ever bought, but my Son (bless!) chipped-in as part of my Christmas present (that makes it a bit more special too).
Then the 1st part of my Maiden stamp order turned up on Thursday. Also perfect condition
It was a good week
So - well-worth a share of one of the tracks from "Prequelle"
- "Rats" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_ijc7A ... IZ&index=1
