Best Ghost B.C. Songs


The Top Ten

1 Cirice

This song introduced me to Ghost and as a result I had this song on loop for three straight days. The music video also got my attention, and this song was really well done. Such a simple and catchy song, yet deep and complicated at the same time. Definitely their best!

Sorry guys I am gonna ruin your fanboy erection but the riff to your Grammy winning song is composed of 2 well known riffs by Slayer: Skeletons of Society and a close variation of the intro to Raining Blood. - Metal_Treasure

As soon as I heard this song, I was sure that meliora is going to be a great album. I get chills just thinking about it - ryanrimmel

Beautiful. 'I can see that you're lost without me.' Haunting. Brilliant.

Usually a fan of heavier music, but this was he Ghost song that really caught my attention. The riffs and chorus were stuck in my head from the first play, and now I'm going back and giving Ghost another chance. They didn't hook me with OE the first time around, but this time they definitely have.

Love the album cover - makes me feel like I'm 8 or 10 again in my old house in Columbus while my dad plays medieval sounding metal/rock. I imagine Dream Theater and Black Sabbath tracks following it up.

A genre I lived listening to as a kid (glam metal) plus the genre I enjoy as an adolescence (doom metal) equals pure awesomeness. - OnyxDash

So catchy. And it's one of their songs that can have a religious meaning or cultural meaning. Definitely one of my favorites.

3 Ritual

It is the catchiest song about human sacrifice

I played this song four times in the day I got the album. - IronSabbathPriest

Good song, but not the best. It Remembers Symphony Of Destruction's riff

Um... And why the riff sounds like the Symphony Of Destruction by Megadeth? - Metal_Treasure

The riff is similar but the rest of the song (vocals, Solo, etc) are very different. - IronSabbathPriest

4 Year Zero

If you could only listen to one Ghost song, this is the one you'd want to hear

Just incredible and unique from the very first moment I have the pleasure to taste it.

Ghost's most toe-tapping track. Great beat, sinister lyrics, awesome live performance.

One of my all time favorite songs. Haunting and headbangable. fantastic song

Soft but heavy at the same time cool riffs I think this defines the band

This song is... awesome

Perfect instrumental, Hail Satan!

6 He Is

Hauntingly beautiful in a black mass kind of way, I can't just listen to it one time has to be a double play at least, this is my first ghost album and I'm totally hooked!

My 2nd favorite song by ghost. You can love/hate the satanic theme of the band all you like but the brilliance of this piece is undeniable.

This song was in third place almost 2 month ago! How did it come in here?! It definitely deserves its previous place. - ammoanpoor

Not sure why this song is not on 1st place!

7 Ghuleh / Zombie Queen

This my current favourite song - it starts off with a beautiful haunting piano melody, followed by a sudden and awesome transition into a groovy hard rock song - definitely the band's best song to date! - petrucci75hammet

One of my new favorite Ghost songs. It's a really beautiful, chill song! The song literally sounds like you are sitting at a weird satanic ritual. The first time I heard it, I thought god was gonna smite me when the song was over. - ryanrimmel


The Kazoo of Destiny is the best part - SoldierOfFortune

9 Stand by Him

I started listening to this song in April, in which obviously the last thing on your mind is Fall, let alone Halloween. But this song immediately made me feel like I was in a really cool, spooky Halloween setting! Definitely one of the coolest songs I've ever listened to. - Dorito

I used to hate the chorus, but then I realized that it has its place. It actually adds to the eerie feel of the song. - Caleb9000

10 Elizabeth

Beautiful masterpiece

This hook is following me for months. Love the bassline at the hook...

The Contenders

11 Deus In Absentia

Great closer to Meliora. Summarises the album nicely while still adding it's own little touch, building up until the end. - IronSabbathPriest

12 Absolution

It is my favourite ghost song!?!?! There is no need for any other explanation other than it is amazing and the best!

It�'s just the best, no further explanation

13 Secular Haze

I love the rift of this song and the keyboard playing in the background! I always get chills when I listen to this song and it makes me feel like I'm a part of a religious cult. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

A masterpiece and My favourite song 10/10

14 Genesis

Everything from the melodic riffing to the emotional acoustic outro to end the album - one of the best modern rock instrumentals! - petrucci75hammet

15 Con Clavi Con Dio

The bass riff is killer, and the whole song as well!

For our corns. For our god.

I really love this song

16 If You Have Ghosts

One of the best. It's a cover, yeah, but personally I think this version is the best.

Great underrated song I believe.

17 Majesty

Beautiful melody in this song

18 Body and Blood

I love almost any Ghost song, they are all perfect. But this one is just slightly more catchy, so Body and Blood takes the cake. Groovy guitar solo too! - Dorito

This is probably their most underrated song. - ryanrimmel

This song is so addicting to listen to. Absolutely love it.

This song got a ambient so groovy and so catchy that anyone, even who don't listen Ghost can be hearing

6...6...6... My personal favorite Ghost song. The harmonies are amazing in the chorus. It is unlike anything I have ever heard. Also, going to add that this is the only good Ghost album.

What the only good album! " Ha" Your a tosser mate u don't deserve to vote on these completely original mystical gems made from this Incredible band.

23 Satan Prayer
24 Jigolo Har Megiddo

I am completely in love with this song at the moment. The lyrics, rather lascivious and sexual, are amazing. I mean, this song is basically about a guy, Satan's son according to the lyrics, enticing women and destroying them in the best of ways in his opinion. I mean, "And I am the one who comes richly endowed", he's basically saying he has a huge package. And don't even get me started on the guitar and keyboard in the song because I will not stop. This song is a pure masterpiece! - Supernatural

Underrated, but catchy, melodic and awesome - Lem

This should be way higher, maybe top ten.

This was the first song I heard from Ghost back in 2014, and it’s been one of my top favorite songs since then. - prussian

25 Mummy Dust

Excellent, the best songs aren't the best because they are well known for a music video.

Way too underrated, one of their creepiest songs

One of my absolute favourites. The writing is so great.

26 Idolatrine
27 Depth of Satan's Eyes

This song is a gem

28 Crucified
29 Spirit

Papa is amazing and with the climax of the song at end, you wont find that anywhere else

The way the guitar riff bursts into this song after the haunting opening is awesome

Surprised Spirit isn't in the top 20. It's an amazing song, and got me wanting to listen to the rest of Meliora and the other two Ghost albums.

30 Bible

Absolutely outstanding. Should definitely be higher on this list. - PapaEIII


31 Waiting for the Night

Not my favorite Ghost song, but it definitely should not be this far down on the list, so I gave it a vote

32 Infestissumam

One of the best opening tracks of all time. - Andrevalenca

I actually really like this song

33 I'm a Marionette
34 Missionary Man

Kick ass cover. Hands down the funkiest Ghost song.

35 I Believe

I was expecting this to be way closer to the top. Such a beautiful song.

Ranked last... how is this possible. This song is executed perfectly and is a great spin on the original. It is so peaceful but filled with emotion. Ghost is the master of atmospheric music. - Dorito

36 Deus Culpa
37 La Mantra Mori
38 Devil Church
39 Spöksonat
