Please don’t poke yourself with something sharp as you are NOT imagining things. The band Ghost will indeed be performing live on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and you know you want to set your DVR’s for this momentous occasion as NYC’s newest Late Night show offering brings the bands macabre message to the masses just in time for Halloween. The poster for this is also on the amaze balls side so check this out as well.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I think this is fantastic news to be quite honest and am awed by the rapid climb that Ghost has made as a band across the fans of Heavy Metal and Hard Rock music over the last few years. Their presentation is surely strong and their music is solid enough for a wider audience to sink their teeth into and offer up homage to their Dark Master. The question remains will Papa Emeritus III be all decked out in his clerical raiments or will he be more like we saw during their brief acoustic set that was documented on PiercingMetal on THIS LINK. I guess we will have to tune in to see for ourselves but overall this is a pretty cool thing to find happening. I do wish it was also giving us a lengthier show like we used to find happening with the “Live On Letterman” Internet broadcasts. What do you all think about this one? Will you be staying up a little later to watch it as it happens or setting your DVR or maybe even foolishly bypassing it altogether. Let me know as it always interests me. Oh yes and I don’t actually know how to get tickets for this show yet but it should work the same as Letterman used to by clicking around their link to vie for tickets and perhaps Ghost has even been given some access so hit their official site or Facebook to know more. Good luck if you try.
UPDATE: As the show aired and has begun streaming the clip on their Official YouTube Channel, I am embedding the song “Cirice” which was performed live in front of the NYC Flock
The band Ghost was celebrating the release of their new album “Meliora” by doing a brief tour in an acoustic fashion entitled the “Unholy Unplugged” Tour and our regional visit was at Rough Trade NYC. The show was discussed on THIS LINK and now please enjoy the photo gallery from the performance.
The third opus by Ghost B.C. (the B.C. is silent) is entitled “Meliora” and comes care of Loma Vista music. This album features the bands new singer Papa Emeritus III who replaces the recently “let go” Papa Emeritus II. Snag yourself a copy via the Amazon.com link below.
In a few short days, those masters of mystery and Satanic subterfuge Ghost will release their third full length album entitled “Meliora” on Loma Vista Records. It will be the general public of the worlds official first time hearing new singer Papa Emeritus III who replaced PEII a short time ago. Advance tracks and video have been great in my humble opinion and since world domination is not an easy task at all, the Clergy have thus decreed that the loyal flock does not have to wait until Friday to listen to it offerings. The whole album has been posted as a stream on the groups official website and in order to imbue your darkest sensibilities with their brand of sound just click the album cover below and it will begin to play.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Nope, you are not getting any more insight from me on this until I do the full on review but thanks for checking. I’m going to try and have that online ASAP so do please stay tuned because I thought the first video for “Cirice” was awesome (and was discussed on THIS LINK). Ghost is currently on a short acoustic tour to celebrate the new album and additional details can be found on THIS LINK.
Attention minions of the flock. It was just a little while ago when my websites email account started acting up and seemed to grow increasingly darker and darker with the only message shining clear through the din was the one from the High Council regarding activities with the spooktacular Ghost. According to these writings, the group will introduce the North American territories to their new singer Papa Emeritus III by paying visit to several record outlets. New music will be performed to help increase your darker desires and there will be the chance to have a brief audience with the band as you graciously hand over money for their new masterpiece. Check out the poster and the official press release below.
