“We decided not to continue out of respect to him and his family”
“Unlike someone like Chris Cornell, I can take my mask off.”
Hopefully this means Aussie tour dates won’t be far off! *crosses devil horns*
“It’s gonna have everything from heavy crushing metal to big ballady anthems.”
2018 looks like the earliest possibility.
“Are you ready to swear right here, right now, before the devil?”

Operating within a culture obsessed with celebrity, fiercely anonymous satanic metal sextet Ghost are an anomaly, choosing to reject the idolatry bestowed upon rock god’s in favour of living artistic lives dedicated to spreading the message of the dark lord. That mission has been going devilishly well, with legions of followers worldwide joining the clergy
UPDATE 17/12/15 5.50pm: Soundwave 2016 has been officially cancelled. They’ve been Soundwave 2016 lineup hopefuls for a while, but now satanical Swedes Ghost have said they will tour Australia early next year. One of Ghost’s Nameless Ghouls spoke to FasterLouder recently, and shed some light — well, some cryptic clues — on when the band

Apart from their pious third leader, Papa Emeritus III (who is more than likely the exact same guy as I and II just with a penchant for Roman numeral facelifts), the rest of the band are
Ghost aren’t fucking around. Despite the fact that they are indeed another metal band dressed up in costumes and masks in an attempt to create larger than life stage personas and characters, they don’t approach their career with the same tongue in cheek, nudge, nudge, wink, wink attitude of bands like KISS or GWAR. They
Hail satan! The Ghost clergy have just unleashed the first song off their new album Meliora. It’s a heavy chuggin’ slow burner called Cirice and it sounds dark as the devil’s balls. Our first taste of Ghost’s third LP, which features vocals by their new (original) frontman, Papa Emeritus III, is a dark and ominous
Swedish church of metal, Ghost, are keeping it one-for-one with lead singers and albums. The band has made good on their threats to replace “asshole” frontman Papa Emeritus II, officially filling his unholy sandals with none other than his three-month-younger brother, Papa Emeritus III. And to celebrate, they’re preparing to release their third album. According
Swedish metal group Ghost have done a reasonable job of hiding the identity of its frontman, Papa Emeritus II. At least, until now. Speculation that Swedish musician Tobias Forge is the man behind Papa’s mask was bolstered by a now-deleted social media post over the weekend, and now one of the group’s nameless ghouls has
Ecclesiastes metal outfit Ghost are reportedly set to replace current frontman Papa Emeritus II, with one of the band’s Nameless Ghouls claiming the “asshole” singer has not been working out and that the band are considering a collaboration with Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst. The band’s original lead singer — Papa Emeritus — was replaced by
Fans eagerly awaiting the reverent antics of Ghost needn’t wait any longer, with the band announcing via Facebook that they will play two club dates in Sydney and Melbourne as sideshows to their Big Day Out 2014 appearance. AJ Maddah initially told fans the clergymen would only make a Melbourne sideshow appearance, tweeting back in
If you’re going to release a covers EP, you may as well release a covers EP produced by Dave Grohl. The Foo Fighters frontman and all-round sterling chap has offered his skills as a knob twiddler to Ghost (or Ghost B.C. to their US friends) for their soon-to-be released covers EP titled If You Have
