Ghost (32)


Heavy Metal / Rock / Pop band from Sweden formed in 2008. They are known for their own self-created mythology, their elaborate costumes, theatrical performances, and were known for keeping members anonymous. Each release lists the musicians as "Nameless Ghouls" and the frontman as "Papa Emeritus / Papa Emeritus II / Papa Emeritus III / Cardinal Copia / Papa Emeritus IV". Drawing influences from classic rock, classic metal and pop bands such as ABBA, Ghost differentiate themselves by merging the aforementioned genres, old and new, and satanic themes in their music giving them a unique sound.

Due to legal conflicts, 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.
