Meliora is the third full-length studio album by Swedish heavy metal band Ghost BC. The album was released on August 21, 2015. This album marked the retiring of lead vocalist Papa Emeritus II’s stage name, who now goes by Papa Emeritus III. From Revolver Magazine: It has been widely reported that Meliora marks the debut of a new singer, Papa Emeritus III, who is the successor of Papa Emeritus I and II- the vocalists on ‘Opus Eponymous’ and ‘Infestissumam,’ respectively.
Ghost began crafting their third studio album, the follow-up to 2013's Infestissumam, at the end of 2014. The impetus for its "futuristic" theme came to a Nameless Ghoul a month or so prior to starting the Infestissumam tour. While trying out a new guitar rig during a rehearsal, the Ghoul created a "spacey echoed" effect that made a guitar riff sound "futuristic sci-fi" A Nameless Ghoul said that, because guitar took a backseat on Infestissumam, the band focused on guitar riffs from the beginn.

The engimatic Swedish band Ghost's 2013 sophomore album Infestissumam was supposed to be metal's second commercial coming, but it was mostly a bore. With Meliora, their third full-length, they've returned to a heavier direction, and created a far more engaging collection of their seductive Satanism. The engimatic Swedish band Ghost (briefly known as Ghost . are in an odd place in the metal world right now. They're maybe the only modern metal band to earn accolades from both Darkthrone's Fenriz (one of their earliest supporters as a part of his "Band of the Week" feature) and Dave Grohl (who has played with them live and produced their covers EP If You Have Ghost).
Written by Brenton Harris. That mission has been going devilishly well, with legions of followers worldwide joining the clergy of Ghost’s dark mass. There’s always room for more in the congregation though, so on Meliora (better in latin) we find Ghost in pursuit of something more.
Band Name Ghost (SWE). Дата релиза 21 Август 2015. Лейблы Spinefarm Records. And what better offering to this statement than the titanic Meliora? Another biting ode to Paradise Lost, and the true mascot of this band, "From the Pinnacle to the Pit" thunders to life and doesn't relent until the fallen angel is gazing up at the light of heaven, plotting bloody vengeance. And speaking of thunder, "Cirice" delivers a hauntingly doomy ode drenched in Candlemass worship.
