Top Ten Reasons People Hate Ghost

IronSabbathPriest
I am a fan of this band. I've seen them live twice and I just enjoy listening to them. But I can see how these ten points would turn people off.

The Top Ten

1 They're Nothing Special

I will say, their style has been done before. - IronSabbathPriest

2 Papa's Vocals

It's fair to say his vocals are weak, particularly on the first album. - IronSabbathPriest

3 The Recent Controversy Surrounding the Nameless Ghouls Revealing Themselves

And accusing Papa of holding back profits. I think this is just bitterness at being kicked out of the band. I'm on Papa's side all the way.

Simon Soderberg is excused though cause I'm friends with him on Facebook. - IronSabbathPriest

4 The Gimmick

Ties in with "They're nothing special". They wouldn't be as successful without the gimmick. - IronSabbathPriest

5 They're Not the Heaviest Band

They incorporate elements of pop in their sound, particularly on Infestissumam and beyond. I'm fine with this. - IronSabbathPriest

6 The Lyrical Themes

Lot of sexual innuendo. And of course, bit of satanism. But not to the extent of some bands that I probably don't need to name. - IronSabbathPriest

7 The Fact that They're Not as Dark as They Once Were

Opus Eponymous is a pretty dark record, aside from Ritual. They lost a lot of fans with Infestissumam. - IronSabbathPriest

8 The Fact They Toured with Iron Maiden

When Dream Theater and Megadeth toured with Maiden on their two previous tours. - IronSabbathPriest

9 Their Album Covers

Kind of nitpicking at this point. - IronSabbathPriest

10 Sometimes Their Lyrics and Song Titles Aren't in English

Pretty pointless item. But I don't want to submit a list without ten items. - IronSabbathPriest
