Ghost just surprised fans with not one but TWO new songs. Their new single, “Seven Inches Of Satanic Panic,” features two tracks: “Kiss The Go-Goat” and “Mary On A Cross.” Both songs will also be included in Ghost’s upcoming Prequelle Exalted box set, due out on September 27th.
“Kiss The Go-Goat” sounds like a late 1960s surf-rock song. It’s psychedelic and rollicking, featuring unrestrained vocals from Papa Nihil (no, not Cardinal Copia this time). Following a descending vocal line about Satan, its choruses ending with unexpected smooching sounds from Papa Nihil. Weird? “Kiss The Go-Goat” is an energetic song that is infectious and groovy fun.
“Mary On A Cross” continues with the vintage musical sound, this time throwing in electric keyboard and rolling drums. The verses sound just as energetic and free-wheeling, but the choruses take a slower, more somber turn. It has some great vocal melodies, especially as it draws closer to its end.
Earlier today, Ghost shared chapter 8 of their Prequelle video series. It doubles as a music video for “Kiss The Go-Goat,” taking us back in time to when Papa Nihil was young and rocking. Watch as he performs a wild show at the Whiskey a Go Go for an enthusiastic crowd. Up in the rafters, Sister is watching, first with pride, then with mortification.
