    Ok look, it's like this: yeah they dress up on stage, sing about the devil and can come off as gimmicky at first glance, but these six nameless musicians from Sweden have found a way to blend 70's occult rock with late nwobhm and even pop influences.

    Opus Eponymous (October 18, 2010)
    Infestissumam (April 9, 2013)
    Meliora (2015)

    The obvious comparisons are early Blue Oyster Cult, Black Widow and Mercyful Fate, but there's even some ELOY in there as well.
    If you can get beyond the ostensive scooby doo intro 'campiness' (done deliberately), then I promise you'll be hooked.

    (yeah, yeah I know. Zombie bishop oooowww scaaary! Just give it a proper chance and enjoy the ride)




    The experience is like being a kid home sick from school (faking) on a rainy day. You're eating chicken soup, playing Castlevania (or ghouls n't ghosts) and have the house all to yourself..perfect! ;)

    ^^I remember you posting them and then Joe picked up the album and liked it a lot.

    I have looked but so far no joy as far as finding a HQ copy...might have to grab an MP3 if I can find one of them out there...to give them a proper listen.
