Ghost (32)

Profile:
Heavy metal/rock band from Sweden formed in 2008. Due to legal issues, the band was briefly forced to release music under the Ghost B.C. name in the United States. They absolutely refused to use the name on any merchandise or in any other manner.

Ghost is known for keeping its members anonymous. Every album lists the musicians as "Nameless Ghouls" and the singer as "Papa Emeritus / Papa Emeritus II / Papa Emeritus III / Cardinal Copia / Papa Emeritus IV". The lead singer is the same, however they announce a new lead singer every album. Ghost is also known for its influence from classic rock and the satanic church theme in their music.

Tobias Forge revealed himself as "The Man Behind The Mask of GHOST" in first public interview on August 17, 2017 on Swedish Radio Channel P1. The identities of the Nameless Ghouls have been speculated upon, but never officially confirmed either by the band or the musicians themselves. A lawsuit brought by former members in 2017 identified a number of past members. Since 2017, Forge has been the only official member of Ghost.
