Presented by Heavy Montreal, Ghost is a Swedish rock band that has been together since 2006. Since then they have released four albums with the most recent being Prequelle in 2018. They won a Grammy in 2016 for Best Metal Performance. With an ever evolving sound, the band has been categorized as heavy metal, progressive rock, pop rock, hard rock, and even psychedelic rock.
Ghost is a band that does stand out from the rest due to their costumes. Made up of eight members seven wear masks that completely cover their faces. They call themselves the Nameless Ghouls while the eighth member is known as Papa Emeritus, who is dressed pretty much like the pope with black and white face make up. Just this spring the band announced that Cardinal Copia would now be the leader of the band. All references to the Catholic Church have been reversed like they worship Satan instead.
The band exists within anonymity. All band members, past or present, have never revealed their names in public. They have said that they do this so that the work does not get obscured by personalities. It has been claimed that Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters dressed up for one show and played with them anonymously.
