In , the band was forced to temporarily rebrand as Ghost B. That Tobias has endured — not just surviving, but flamboyantly thriving in the heightened spotlight — feels like proof his band are here to stay. Ghost might have traversed a full spectrum from gouging metal via classic rock to shimmering guitar-pop thus far, but the further their sound has strayed into the light, the harder the lyrics have drilled down into darkness. A textbook three-and-a-half-minutes built of sweet acoustic and rich electric guitars surging towards its massive chorus, you can practically taste the relish as Tobias ladles the syrup onto some of his darkest words. Layering on riffage that calls to mind the epic doom of heroes like Candlemass , marching-beat percussion and a lyrical treatment revolving around that title chanted as a mantra, there is sinisterness throughout. The track that started it all. Inspired by that irresistible lead riff — stumbled upon while practising for another band — Tobias foresaw a deep, dark well of potential waiting to be tapped and threw himself in headlong. Tying into the Ghost B. Four years since their formation, Elizabeth felt like the break Ghost had been waiting for. Powered by a straightforward riff and piercing organs, dazzling solos and a rogue harpsichord, its introduction of the Black Death concept in which the album would wallow refracting contemporary grievances through the filthy lens of the 14th century bubonic plague felt both atmospherically appropriate and deliciously alive.

Ghost , also formerly known as Ghost B. The song Ritual was chosen by Kerrang! The band released their third studio album, Meliora , in to much critical acclaim and high record sales, reaching number one in their home country of Sweden, and number eight in the United States. The band released their fourth studio album, Prequelle , in Ghost is easily recognizable owing greatly to its eccentric on-stage presence. Seven of the group's eight members, its 'Nameless Ghouls',  wear virtually identical, face-concealing costumes. Prior to a lawsuit filed by former members of the band, lead singer Tobias Forge obscured his identity behind the character "Papa Emeritus". The character, which consists of Forge in a prosthetic mask and makeup, can be best described as a 'demonic anti-pope'. From the release of the album Prequelle and subsequent world tour, Forge portrayed a character known as "Cardinal Copia", who is described as being unrelated to any of the Papa Emeritus characters and whose costume consists of either Cardinal vestments or a black or white tuxedo alongside a prosthetic mask with black eye makeup and the multi-colored eyes which had been present in each Papa character. When the chorus came to me, it haunted my dreams.
