Ghost

Whoa, it has been forever since I posted on this blog.  I have looked up so much shit since then.  Recently, though, I got into the band Ghost.  You may not know them but they get dressed up in anti-Catholic crap and wear masks and all that.  At first, I was like, “Oh no, they’re Satanic!”  Then I read some interviews and realize that the theatricality of it all is just part of the act, aimed at pointing to their real message.

    • They’re Swedish
    • They try to keep their members anonymous.  Instead of, you know, giving their names, their members are as follows:
      • Alchemy fire symbol.svg (Fire), lead guitarist
      • Alchemy water symbol.svg (Water), bassist
      • Alchemy air symbol.svg (Wind), keyboards
      • Alchemy earth symbol.svg (Earth), drummer
      • Aether symbol.jpg (Ether), rhythm guitar
      • Their frontman goes by “Papa Emeritus” and they recruit a new one for each new album, so they’re on Papa Emeritus III.  I’m pretty sure it’s the same guy.
    • Their music is awesome
    • Insightful, revealing interviews on the band here (San Francisco Weekly), here (Rolling Stone), and here (Loudwire).
    • They look like this:
