Ghost made waves in the metal world when they released their debut album in 2010. Their sound is a throwback to acts of yore such as Blue Oyster Cult and Mercyful Fate. The band is completely anonymous and go on stage wearing costumes and masks that hide their identity. The Nameless Ghouls, as the band members are called, all dress the same except for their front man, Papa Emeritus II. His creepy stage presence is unmistakable and, combined with with Ghost’s music and imagery, conjures the feeling of some kind of evil church service. Their sophomore album was just released in early April and this will be the area’s first chance to see Ghost perform their catchy new material live. The supporting act on this tour is Ides Of Gemini, a haunting rock band from Los Angeles, California. This all adds up to a show that shouldn’t be missed! Now check out these recent Ghost videos below, as well as one from Ides Of Gemini, and enter the contest below!

  53. Hard to pick one Ghost song, but I’ll go with Elizabeth, as it is the first song I heard from Ghost, and the one I play most. The chorus is just so catchy, I invariably am howling along:

    Elizabeth, in the chasm where was my soul
    Forever young, Elizabethhhhhhhh Bathoryyyyy in the castle of your death
    You’re still alive, Elizabeth!

    Fucking awesome every time. And then in the middle where its like “….her acts of cruelty and lust for blood makes her one of us!” horns up to that \m/ followed by ripping solo \m/

  54. Death Knell
