Today, Ghost’s debut album, Opus Eponymous celebrates its tenth anniversary. Though often overlooked in Ghost’s relatively sparse but stellar discography, this was the album that would take the band from an underground act to the metal phenomenon they are today.

Described by frontman Tobias Forge as being “pre-metal,” Opus Eponymous feels like a lost gem from the ’70s, which was the original intent of the band as a whole: a group which everyone missed the first time around.

Though relatively raw compared to their later outings, the proto-metal, hard rock, and iconic catchy power-pop choruses all began the epic journey of Ghost, birthing the concept, sound, and storyline of the band.
