Ghost Presents: Chapter Six: “The Visit”

ghost logo

Message From The Clergy: We wish to inform you the story continues. Chapter 6 is available for viewing…

PiercingMetal Thoughts: It looks like Sister Imperator will soon be back to work for the ministry now that she is all healed up after her accident which is a good thing indeed. During her absence, the band Ghost has been keeping busy and just recently completed their “A Pale Tour Named Death” run of dates. Sadly, I myself missed it (not for lack of trying to be a part of the madness) but fortunately our own Kat Electric was in attendance and documented an in-depth show report so I could be there in my mind. That summary was posted HERE in case you missed it. With The Cardinal and Papa 0 set to take care of her for the time being, one can only imagine the kind of madness that will ensure across future chapters. Speaking frankly, I hope that there is still a chance to catch the Cardinal in concert before another Papa manifests because I’ve never witnessed his glorious Metal mass yet and would hate to have missed out completely. What do you readers think is coming next? Chime in down below.

PiercingMetal’s “Best Of” 2018: Top Nine On Instagram

Well how about that my friends, it appears as though we’ve once again arrived at the time where the Instagram “Top Nine” images are tabulated and that means you get to enjoy them as well. Over the course of 2018, I really was enjoying the use of Instagram as a social networking tool and I’m fairly certain that I used it a lot more than any of the other socials combined. The rundown will come after the image below so please take a gander. I figured that I’d offer up some background on them all.

About These Visuals: Starting from the top left hand corner we’ve got the band Paramore which is fronted by Hayley Williams and right next to that is the ominious Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein and his own parmour Alissa White-Gluz of Arch Enemy. A lot of you longer terms website readers will likely remember Alissa from The Agonist. Closing up the first row is Black Veil Brides singer Andy Black who was showing off a brand new comic graphic novel at the Last Rites Gallery. I’m not sure why they decided to cut off artist Eryk Donovan but that is the app for you. Sorry Eryk. The second row was from a great SiriusXM Town Hall with the legendary Judas Priest and that is the lads and myself post their interview at the station. It’s always great to say hello to The Priest and of course to support their live shows. The Brits are followed next by two images of the lovely and talented Riki “Riddle” Lecotey who is a cosplayer of some reknown. They were taken from The BoroughCon event and we just love her amazing designs. Our last row is the also legendary Glenn Hughes who was delivering a solo tour that celebrated his Deep Purple years. This row is completed by a visual from the Ghost Press Conference that was held by Papa Nihil and Sister Imperator and the great Zakk Wylde from Black Label Society and Ozzy Osbourne during his special appearance at the “Fear The Riff” Expo in Brooklyn. Good times. As you can see, the collage shows that we recieved 25.8K likes for the sum total of our 6,716 posted images. Though we’ve gone up over 1K followers to 1,419 the sum-total likes dropped a chunk in comparison to last year. I think this was based on our flipping between personal and business accounts to get some standings but in the business account we saw less people coming aboard much like the Facebook Official Page. Since Facebook owns Instagram a lot of the same algorithm stuff goes on and they want you to pay for ads which I am NOT going to do.

Ghost Presents: Chapter Five: “The Call”

Message From The Clergy: We wish to inform you Sister Imperator is recovering nicely and has another important message.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: It’s good to see Sister not only recovering but also taking the initiative in doling out the necessary work to keep the band Ghost on the road. At the close of the last clip, we found her instructing Papa Nihil to announce the European Tour (seen HERE in case you missed it). Now we find her taking a call from not only the Papa but The Old One Himself where she asks him to announce the Stadium Tour for 2019. Yes my fiends, Ghost will be supporting the mighty Metallica during their stadium run and I think they better have their big boy pants on because the flock will not take so kindly to a shorter Ghost set for more Metallica. What do you think of the clip and this news? Chime in down below and oh yeah, how did Sister like the flowers and the chocolates? You did send them didn’t you?

Ghost Presents: Chapter Four: “The Accident”

Message From The Clergy: We wish to inform you Chapter 4 is now ready for viewing….

PiercingMetal Thoughts: And so we have learned what terrible circumstance had befallen Sister Imperator while attending to some essential business for The Clergy. Yes, as you can see she was in a horrible car accident and part of it reminded me of the whole “Detroit Rock City” intro on the KISS “Destroyer” album. By the look of her she is going to be out of commission for a little while and that leaves the work up to Papa Nihil so let’s hope that he can keep focused on the tasks at hand. For those who wish to send gifts to Sister while she recovers, I believe the bands Official Facebook has the information on how you might do so. I’m told she loves lilies and Kit Kat candy. Until next time.

Ghost Presents: Chapter Three: “Back On The Road”

Message From The Clergy: We wish to inform you that the Papas have been re-instated.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: And so we’ve learned just what Sister means by “re-instated”. I’m thinking that she means “in state” but yes, all three of the previous Papas are no more and now for a limited time only shall be available for sacred viewings as a part of the VIP experience at the shows. I never got to see Papa I but was for sure a fan of Papa II and Papa III and felt that each of them had more songs to sing for the converted legions. Oh well, perhaps in the Great Whatever After they are composing sinister symphony that you just might hear on a cold dark night if you listen to the wind close enough. I have no further thoughts on this clip as a topic but shall continue to monitor any whispers and rumblings that might follow in order to keep you all informed. Count the minutes until my return. Let me know what you think about this clip down in the comments section below and share your grief about the end of the three Papas.
