GHOST: Official Guitar Pick Set Now Available

via Blabbermouth

Mysterious Swedish buzz band GHOST is now selling its official Dunlop guitar pick set via the group’s webshop.

GHOST cult leader “Papa Emeritus” (rumored to be REPUGNANT/SUBVISION‘s Tobias Forge, who takes the stage in the form of “a satanic pope”) and his anonymous ghouls recently teamed up with doom rockers BLOOD CEREMONY and ANCIENT VVISDOM for a two-week trek dubbed the “13 Dates Of Doom” tour that launched on January 18 in New York City and wrapped on February 2 in Los Angeles.

GHOST will support MASTODON and OPETH on a North American tour in April/May.

GHOST is continuing to support its debut album, “Opus Eponymous”, which has been called “amazing” by Stereogum and “a primer on the creation of melodic hard rock” by The Big Takeover.

GHOST floored music fans with its first U.S. shows and served notice that it is not only a “band to watch” but will be a force to be reckoned with for years to come. In its live review of GHOST‘s New York City headlining show, the Village Voice called the group’s performance “lurching and menacing”, saying “GHOST‘s sound is like heavy metal trapped in a state of suspended animation since 1973.”

GHOST‘s “Opus Eponymous” is a daringly fascinating combination of satanic rock music merged with an almost unthinkable pop sensibility. Enveloped in a shroud of mystery and standing anonymous beneath the painted faces, hoods and robes which their sect demand, the GHOST deliver litanies of pulsating heavy rock and stimulating lyrics which “glorify and glamorize the disgusting and sacrilegious.” The music and philosophies of GHOST specifically target “individuals who have a void in their life perhaps caused by some form of emotional trauma or upset” (research suggests these are most likely adolescents); this dearth can then be alluringly filled by GHOST‘s music and philosophies.
