Best Ghost B.C. Songs


The Top Ten

1 Cirice

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

If that's the case, then that's hilarious. Kerry King went out and said he couldn't get into Ghost's music. If what you say is true, Kerry doesn't like some of the riffs he plays lol - Brutusbuttslaps

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!

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

This is the song that got me liking this band

I grew up and started to love music in the late 80's and from then on. I love metal, and this was the first song I had herd done in a great many years that really reached out and got me. I am slowly enjoying this bands work and I have not heard this like since, Ozzy or Kiss. It is nice to know that this kind of music is still going strong. I absolutely love it and will follow this band, hopefully for a long time to come.

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.

3 Ritual

It is the catchiest song about human sacrifice

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

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

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

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.



...that is the most metal intro i’ve ever heard in my life

5 Monstrance Clock

My first song I heard and even from listening to all the albums this is one of my all time favorite ghost songs. So head banging

This song is... awesome

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

My first Ghost song, first seconds of hearing it I was already in love - Halvsten

6 He Is

Not the best but deserving of more praise. I showed this song to friends who hate metal and they loved it. Just goes to show how this band can really be the next step in bringing back a style of metal that can resonate with a broader audience.

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.

First time hearing this song and love it

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


Gorgeous and creepy, possibly the most unique song in Ghost’s repertoire. Brilliant use of crescendos.

8 From the Pinnacle to the Pit

This songs haunts me in my sleep, pure awesomeness

This is the first song I listened to by ghost and now I'm hooked. Great song

Amazing song, my absolute favorite... Gotta love these perfect finger taping parts and awesome base!

One of my favorits from meliora - SoldierOfFortune

9 Genesis

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

10 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

The Contenders

11 Elizabeth

This song is how found ghost cause my name is Elizabeth and I was looking up songs with my name and I'm so hooked I listen to them ever single day. I might have an addiction

Beautiful masterpiece

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

12 Deus In Absentia

The song I listened to the most in 2017. It's hard to pick a favorite Ghost track, but this might be it for me.

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

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 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

Siamo con clavi
siamo con dio
siamo con il nostro dio oscuro

15 Rats

I've been on the edge of getting into ghost for quite some time. However after hearing Rats for the first time it finally pushed me over the edge. I've since purchased the entire back catalog and am enjoying this revolutionary band and their amazing sound! Looking forward to the rest of the new album this June!

I'm calling it right now, Prequelle is going to be their best yet. This song ticks all the boxes: it's more metal-sounding than much of their work, while at the same time retaining the beautiful melodies characteristic of them.

Definitely top 10!

Not my favorite Ghost song, but it's currently too low and easily deserves top 10.

16 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

17 Prime Mover

Obsessive Oyster...Not the actual lyrics but makes my 9 year old sing out loud every time. It's a cool song and one of my favorites for that reason.

18 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.

19 Majesty

Beautiful melody in this song

20 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.

Definitely one of their most underrated songs

22 Death Knell

27 Miasma

A delicious instrumental journey with epic guitar riffs and a monumental sax solo..!

28 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.

29 Idolatrine

Don't know why this is so low, so catcy and awesome, only bad thing about the song is that the 2nd verse is too short!

30 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

This should be way higher, maybe top ten.

Underrated, but catchy, melodic and awesome - Lem

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

31 Pro Memoria Pro Memoria

Do not forget about dying...

Really catchy, grows on you and the piano is awesome. don't you forget about dying...

32 Depth of Satan's Eyes

Hidden gem right here

This song is a gem

33 Crucified

This song is very underrated. It should be played live!

34 I'm a Marionette
35 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.

This is in my top 3 for Meliora. Fantastic keyboard solo and great singing from papa

36 Life Eternal Life Eternal

Amazing song

Up there as Ghost’s finest moment so far - musically & lyrically majestic.

37 Witch Image Witch Image

One of the best choruses I've heard in a long time. Not the best but definitely should be higher than this

Get this to the top10 now!

Instant classic

Really catchy and melodic song, quite the contrast to the lyrics which are pretty dark. Should be up there with cirice in my opinion

38 Bible

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


39 Life Eternal Life Eternal

Will become a Ghost classic - simply amazing words & music

40 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

41 Missionary Man

Kick ass cover. Hands down the funkiest Ghost song.

42 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

43 Helvetesfonster

Make way for this masterpiece, guys. The rest of the songs are really cool and all, but this piece of art is just one in a lifetime, I'm gladly surprised to see Tobias' full potential here. - patoezequiel

44 Infestissumam

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

I actually really like this song

45 Nocturnal Me

Because its lit

46 Deus Culpa
47 La Mantra Mori

One of the most mysterious ghost tracks out there... I can still hear the haunting of "We focus on your death"
