If You Have Ghost

This EP by the costumed doom-metal Swedes (they are Ghost B.C. here for legal reasons) is a weird, appealing detour from their regular godless crunch. Produced by Foo Fighters‘ Dave Grohl, the record features dark-chrome covers from less-obvious hells, including Depeche Mode‘s melancholy “Waiting for the Night,” Abba‘s “I’m a Marionette” and the acid-casualty haunting of Roky Erickson’s “If You Have Ghosts.” The songs bring out the progleaning pop lurking in Ghost’s bones – the Yes-like gleam in Papa Emeritus II’s singing; the guitars’ symphonic-fuzz decorum – while a live version of Ghost’s “Secular Haze” reminds you that, in this band, the devil is still in charge of the details.
