Ghost conjures the spirit of Lucio Fulci for new video

I don't write much about music here, which stands in stark contrast to how I generally behave outside of the matrix. Remember that post about Grayson Hall's appearance in a radio spot for Blue Oyster Cult? Imagine that stretched out over 20 years as a piece of performance art and you'll get an idea of what it's like to be in my proximity.

Which brings me to the following: a new music video by Ghost. It's a tune titled "Cirice" from their latest album MELIORA. I'm a little bit on the fence about this band, which mixes treble-friendly '80s metal, '70s-era Goblin/John Carpenter and a heaping, helping serving of bullshit Satanism. It's got all the elements I need to fall in love, but there's something a little ... unfinished about their concept. While I dig the band, don't expect to see me sporting their logo as a tattoo.

"Cirice" is a pretty good representation of the band's sound. Even if it's not your cup o'tea, though, you'll probably still get a kick out of the video. It looks like the kind of think that might have resulted from a Lucio Fulci/Ozzy Osbourne collaboration. You can watch it below.
