Carcass Leader Defends Babymetal

Babymetal

I know there are some other metal sites on the web that are high on the dog and pony show that is Babymetal, but I’ll never get behind the Japanese pop act. Supporting Babymetal would be like supporting the fucking Olsen Twins if they started a hair metal band at the height of that lame […]

One Of Ghost’s Nameless Ghouls Discusses Nergal’s Papa Pic

Ghost

It’s safe to assume Tobias Forge is Ghost’s Papa Emeritus II, especially after that picture Behemoth frontman Nergal posted online with the man, backstage at a festival, with a caption that references Ghost. Oh, and it didn’t help that, in an interview this weekend at the Sonisphere festival, one of the Nameless Ghouls from the […]

Behemoth Frontman Outs Ghost Frontman

Tobias and Nergal

The attached picture shows Behemoth’s Adam “Nergal” Darski hanging out with Tobias Forge, the man largely believed to be Ghost’s Papa Emeritus II. The picture was posted on Instagram and has since been removed. It’s not as though we didn’t already suspect Forge was Papa, but the picture basically confirms it. Considering the caption was […]

Gunshy Assassin Presents: The Disastercast

disastercast

It’s Saturday. We never post podcasts on Saturday. But this week was a little hectic for your old pal Chris, kids. In fact, sadly, today’s podcast doesn’t even have a musician interview; Jesse James Madre from Tiger Flowers was set to guest on the show, but car trouble prevented it. He will appear as a […]

Ghost Working On New Music

Ghost

One of the Nameless Ghouls in Ghost tells Metal Hammer that new music from the band is in the works. A few heads I know will be psyched to receive such word. Says the moniker-free musician: “We have some track title figures out, and we know the album title too, as well as thematically where […]

Ghost Wins Grammi

Ghost

That’s right, you Ghost fans. Your band of unidentified musicians has won a Grammi award in Sweden. How you like them cumquats? The band won the “Best Hard Rock/Metal” Grammi for Infestissumam. They beat out Watain, Crashdïet, and two bands you wouldn’t give a shit about for the award. Congrats, I guess. Imagine Watain had […]

Ghost Frontman Performs Sans Makeup

The makeup under the makeup

I guess those enigmatic gents in Ghost expect us to believe Papa Emeritus II is some bald dude who looks like a retired Vegas lounge singer. I’m not buying it. Which is why I held off on posting this nonsense earlier. But what the fuck? There’s not much else going on. At the end of […]

More Dates Revealed For Ghost’s Spring Tour

Ghost

Not just a couple of dates, but a whole slew of them. It’s true — Ghost, who plan to begin work on their next LP this fall, will be touring the U.S. this spring first. The openers for the tour will be In Solitude and King Dude. At least that’s what’s the leaked dates indicate. […]
