Ghost Get New Papa, Prep New Album


Get ready for Papa Emeritus III! As hinted nearly a year ago, Ghost have “fired” Papa Emeritus II and enlisted a new singer, according to Sweden Rock Magazine. The band’s third album and first with Papa Emeritus III will be released in late summer or early fall of this year. The follow-up to 2013’s Infestissumam […]

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


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 […]

Watch Part Of A Documentary About Ghost

What the fuck?

Ghost are the subject of a new documentary. In it, they show the true identity of Papa Emeritus II, depicting him as an old fucking man with a shitty mustache. But it’s really just a mask. You will see. The documentary is the work of Noisey. You can see it at the end of this […]

Ghost’s Singer Will Be Replaced At Some Point


I guess that’s what you do, right? You’re a band whose members remain identity-less. It’d make it easy to switch members in and out.   In fact, who are we to ever know if they have a lineup change? Unless they issue a press release about it, we’d be none the wiser. So, one of […]

Ghost To Sign Autographs In L.A.


Yeah, ‘cause I want a fucking glossy picture of Ghost with the words “Nameless Ghoul” written across it in black Sharpee. Ghost — that band from Sweden who are probably not as cool as everyone makes them out to be — have announced a signing session for April 16. In order to get an autograph, […]

Ghost Streaming Another New Song


I can only assume the new Ghost record leaked recently, because last night, my Facebook feed lit up with caustic criticism of the new disc, saying it was “over” for the band so many love and so many others love to hate. After listening to the song that follows at the end of this post, […]

Ghost Album Delayed Over Controversial Disc Art

Something's offensive about this?

So, I guess the fucking hipster buttdarts of the world have latched on to Ghost — or Ghost B.C., depending on where you stand on brevity — because Spin now covers them a ton. Sad, really, when something you care about is tainted by the tang of Pabst Blue Ribbon, cigarettes, and B.O. Spin claims […]

Listen To That New Ghost Tune — Right Here, Right Now


At the end of this post, you’ll be able to stream a new song from Ghost called “Year Zero.” It sort of made me feel like I was in an Indiana Jones video game for a minute. One where Notorious B.I.G. is Satan. The song comes from Ghost’s upcoming new album, Infestissumam. Meanwhile, you can […]

Ghost Frontman Wants To Be Next Pope?

A whole lotta win

It’s obviously a publicity stunt, but if you go here, you can suggest Papa Emeritus II as the next papal leader. In exchange for your “vote,” you will gain access to a stream of a new song called “Year Zero,” Go vote. As you well know, the conclave has commenced. If the dude from Ghana […]
