There has been a message from the Clergy and apparently the Powers That Be for the band Ghost have announced a Press Conference for NYC this Monday at the ungodly hour of 9AM. Well, ungodly if you stay out all night like some of the folks in the Metal scene that I know of and here are the details.
WHAT: A special announcement from Papa Nihil and Sister Imperator, live in person
WHERE: Irving Plaza (17 Irving Pl, New York, NY 10003)
WHEN: Monday, April 30th – Doors open at 9:00am
SPECIAL NOTICE: Fans who dress in Ghost cosplay will receive VIP entrance to the event
ABOUT GHOST: Ghost are a Grammy® Award-winning rock band from Linköping, Sweden. The band’s critically acclaimed third full length, Meliora and its accompanying EP Popestar, elevated the Swedish rock band into the pantheon of rock greats and resulted in a Grammy Award for ‘Best Metal Performance’. Meliora debuted at No. 1 at Independent Retail, No. 2 at Rock, and in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart, selling over a quarter million copies globally. Popestar debuted at the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums Chart. Fans have come along for the ride for years, not knowing for certain who was behind the anonymous band… that is, until Tobias Forge revealed himself as the man behind Ghost in August of 2017. Ghost will release their highly anticipated fourth studio album Prequelle on June 1, 2018 on Loma Vista Recordings. Previous Ghost albums have dealt with broad themes like impending doom (Opus Eponymous – 2010), the antichrist and the Inquisition (Infesstimum – 2013), humanism and avarice (Meliora – 2015). Prequelle delves into the plague, the apocalypse, and dark ages.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though they didn’t release much in terms of information, one has to believe that an introduction of The Cardinal will be taking place during this event. Looks like we all better set the alarm clock for 3AM in order to ensure a place inside the venue for this one. Now, does anyone who might have been in any religious order in my circle have some vestments and such that I can borrow for a day ;p – What do you readers think about this? Will you come? Chime in below.
