...is this... pop-metal?
Either way it rules, end of the video reminded me of "Run"

said this in the album thread but to add my two cents...

Not to sound nit picky here but Papa's vocals and the chorus were pretty bland imo. The instrumentals were fine but majority of the time lacked the punch they normally have. That is aside from that kickass solo, which stood out like a sore thumb because it made the rest of the track come off kind of lazy and uninspired.

It's not their best, but the way he says "Rats!" on repeated listens eventually is indeed infectious.

I'm just used to the lead single that they release first blowing me away and this was just exact opposite imo, for example when year zero was released I was flooredddd by it.

I was a naysayer after all of the BS revolving around them lately, but that was a damn good song.

Not sure if it's just me, but the harmonic vocals are somewhat reminiscent of Weird Al.

Song is killer. Album art is killer. The new Ghouls look is killer. Wasn't a big fan of new papa (Cardinal?) until the video. Ghost is killing it.

Great song. It's funny how the man's going into a more musical-like production (visually too) with each album.

Fuck I love this band.
I hesitate to call them metal, but rock/metal in general badly neeeded a theatrical kick up the ass. This reminds me of the Maiden/Priest days.

I love these guys. Also happen to find Cardinal Copia's mask creepier than any of the Papa masks. Good tune, and to the dude who said he kind of sounds like Weird Al, I've thought the same since Opus Eponymous!

More like Meliora than I expected. Acceptable tune, but I'm hoping this is the weakest song on the album.

Overrated band, song's pretty gay (no homophobia - just a good word to describe it). Guitar solo was decent tho.

No, but it's pretty much gotten to the point where their fans should know better and listen to BOC instead.
