On this, my much younger friend pointed out that's also a 90s Alice in Chains or Kyuss vibe off some of this. I ignored those bands at the time, but I hear what's she's saying.
actually some of the vocals on the new one kind of remind me of Andrew Wood from Mother Love Bone...

Indeed. It's like people here have not heard any modern metal of the doom variety. It's doom metal with hooks so it sounds exactly like Ghost.

Yes thats exactly my point :) - I'm really not into forensic divisions of music into micro genre.
I hear people with guitars with drugs. I hear a lifestyle and aesthetic that fits into one big container. These things are always sabbath +1 idea.

Green lung is sabbath + super strat solos.
Goat is sabbath + 70s rock.
Ghost is sabbath +civil servants.

There's no adventure in listening to these micro-evolutions to me - Not that I think that there can't be great music or great albums within this mindframe, but In terms of album club stuff I'm more interested in going into stuff that is off my radar a bit - stuff where the timbre on its own might be a challenge or stuff I'd have avoided twenty years ago because my sister liked it.

I still have not listened and I will not listen unless it's chosen but considering the amount of discussion already lets consider this chosen. I don't want to have the whole "entire conversations nixed" problem we had with the Suede album.

I don't even like any of those three bands. I did enjoy Goat for an album I'll admit but that's about it.
