it's fucking good and the first metal album i've truly enjoyed since high school
For some reason I don't like it nearly as much as Opus Eponymous. It might be simply a matter of expectations; when I heard Opus, I had no idea what to expect since I'd never heard Ghost, but I had kinda high hopes for their new album. I'm also not crazy about the mix of Infestissumam (slight clipping on what sounds like the drum track), but I don't feel like that would cause complete disinterest. I wish I could get into it as much as I did Opus but it's just not happening for me.
Anyways, I've been listening to Nightwish recently. I feel like they're one of those bands that gets better the further back you go into their discog; their new stuff is good but imo Oceanborn is their best.
