Ghost (32)

Profile:
Heavy metal/rock band from Sweden formed in 2008. Ghost is known for keeping its members anonymous and their own self-created mythology. 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". Ghost is also known for its influence from classic rock, and the satanic themes in their music.

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.

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, confirming that he is the lead singer and primary composer. 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 against Forge by former members in 2017 identified a number of past members. Since 2017, Forge has been the only official member of Ghost.
