You know you've made something special when you've got metalheads googling your dance moves. The song, video and choreography are what a bunch of us have spent 1000s of hours trying to do something half as well as what you accomplish here. Great track, great video. F you for making something I wish I had! :)
Now that I've thought about it and listened a lot... wow. This is exactly what it's like growing up in a dogmatic religious environment. They act as if any dissenting thought is a disease which you can catch.
I like that thing that Tobias does with his voice after growling "rats".
Love the Vito Corleone mask.
these riffs are complete ripoff of "2 minutes to midnight" by iron maiden
Que elegancia la de francia 😮😮😮😮😮😮
The synth in "Ashes" and the riff at the end of this song kinda remind me of "The Day That The World Breaks Down". Overall the songs have almost nothing in common, but the theme at the end sounds eerily similar to this riff.
So a friend of mine bought tickets to what he called an occult, so I decided to come with to see what the hell he was talking about, turns out it was just a ghost concert.
I must say that after buying the whole CD it only gets better, you hear the first couple of songs, you like, BUT, by the end of the whole CD, you just freakin LOVE Ghost. I personally have NEVER heard a song by Ghost that I didn't love. So this is a band that is REALLY hard to NOT love. Many lyrics WILL take your christian friends by surprise, BUT, my friend who is a christian had made a note of some lyrics and hadn't been offended, she merely had taken them at face value, like the fact that satan is indeed walking behind you, and looking for you to mess up. I had even appoligized to her if the lyrics had offended her. She said that she wasn't offended and that she was fine with it, this friend of mine is really a christian, BUT, she also watches all the 'Living dead " shows and all the shows about Vampires, so maybe she can go along with a song about some evil things here and there.
Great cardenal panda
2:27 when a girl on Tinder tells you "you're the only guy I talk to"
Ghost' albums are produced so well. Lots of breathing room, not over compressed like so many mainstream bands nowadays. Love their sound.
Rats we're rats, we prey at night we stalk at night we're the rats.
I was in the car, tired after taking my ball python to the vet, rats came on and i basically resurrected myself from the dead
Ghost should go home with at least 1 Grammy Award this year. I'm betting on Rats to win the Award for Best Rock Song and it would be great if Prequelle wins the Award for Best Rock Album too.
That cardinal sure can dance.
shits gay as fuck
Check out "lovely the band" if you want to attack something for being fucking lame. Ghost rocks.
My husband just made a comment that he thought that they have a very strong Queen influence, reminiscent of "Flash Gordon" song... with their "rats".... and with the very melodic guitar riffs. After listening to the Queen song and then Ghost's "Rats" again, absolutely can hear the influence.
It's sort of an Ozzy Osbourne meets Queen sound on this track.
That guitar solo at 2:13 and 2:31 went straight to what is left of my soul
Essa banda é d+
Muito sinistro esse clipe
Ha ha the guitarist is playing with gloves on.
This is a cavalier of the apocalypse ❤️
Guess who's not watching Rattatouie again.
My fav part is the feminine dance moves he uses!
OHHHHH look how cool he is! So edgy!
He looks as thin and short as a 14yo i would snap this clown in half like a twig
Sir. Go back to slipknot ye elitist scumbag
lol they removed my comment. That settles it the thin skin of this weirdo has insured that the band is too gay for me to like

So why the fuck are you here
Fucked up much?
Fuck.n brilliant. 🤘🤘🤘🤘
Holy fucking shit. I sing this song at the top of my lungs with my cat every single time I get drunk and wish I had a girlfriend. Holy shit, I'm drunk. Also, I'm single.
esta canción esta basada en el gobierno de mexico, deja tu poderoso like si estas de acuerdo jajajajaja
Y en el de España también 😂
Hm, Forester ...👍
Looks like a busted Harvey Keitel
The cardinal should be permanent, best Front man so far. Pape can eat it.
Every Ghost video it's like a dream continuation of all the 80's horror aesthetics. And it's 2019 and they (he) are reminding people that dancing videos aren't about cheap sexualizing content, they can be art, maybe an MJ thriller's tribute, who knows. I have this weird feeling like the whole album sounds like 80's but this musical mashup could only exist right now. I'm excited maybe when I'm older I could say I lived through the death and the rebirth of rock... (and I'm only 23 next week)
(Just sharing my non-important-person thoughts.. 😂)
Rats dont spread disease, humans do , then the rats pick it up correct THAT DICK HEAD AND FUCK YOU RATS ARE COOL..pay your band members what they deserve too whilst i am at it ..your saying rat , you should be saying HUMAN FUCK ASS fuck off LOL, mocking Christians does shit, YOU dont know how to deal wiHt it...your have fans and the music industry and call rats bad? HAHHAAAHAH
This is what failing high school looks like in writing form.
Ticks spread the plague. Rats carried the infected ticks. Why are you here again?
Looks like fuckin Dr. Phibes
Has an 80's metal sound with a modern twist
Wow...he's a great dancer huh? Those twirls and jazz hands makes you think.....
Wait.. is he doing thriller in some of these shots? lol
As a new comer to Ghost I have to ask; does he have a glass left eye?
Not in real life. ;-) He is actually a pretty good looking guy. Pretty sure that is him in Dance Macabre that goes to the door with the other guy at the beginning of the video looking for a "party".. my hubby thought the guy answering the door was Marilyn Manson... lol...
Bring back Papa please this video sucks--love the song :-)
Song is about organized Religion
+JayyBird hey, could be. But I got that info from Tobias's interview.
This is the great thing about Ghost. You can find many meanings from their music.
+IkeVMAX4 No. That just sounds way to literal. You need to go beyond the name of the song and the video. "The song is called rats...So its about rats" wf? Its called symbolism. The "rats" are symbols of what organized religion does to society. The power. The lust. The control. A bunch of evil salesmen. They've come to eat your soul. And you let them right in the door. Willingly. Oblivious to the danger, and the destriuction it can cause society. Never to let go. You got this one wrong brother.
this song tells how the plague killed tens of millions of people in europe between 1346–1353. Rats were the host animal for the fleas what spred the plaque. It´s the theme for the album.
A cardinal dancing.... bring back papa... music is still legit tho...
Such a wonderful masterpiece
Anyone else finally break down and look this band up after hearing Arin and Dan mention it for the 5th time lately? I knew it'd be weird, but damn. This is trippy and catchy for sure.
Have you heard their song Square Hammer? Really good. This album is more mellow, especially with Dance Macabre. But it is growing on me. Would love more pounding riffs and heavier tones like in Square Hammer.
Rats spells STAR BACK WARDS
