Ghost is a heavy metal/rock band from Sweden formed in 2008. Due to legal issues, the band was briefly forced to release music under the Ghost B.C. name in the United States. They absolutely refused to use the name on any merchandise or in any other manner. Ghost is known for keeping its members anonymous. Every album lists the musicians as “Nameless Ghouls” and the singer as “Papa Emeritus / Papa Emeritus II / Papa Emeritus III”.
The lead singer is thought to be the same, however they announce a new lead singer every album. Ghost is also known for its influence from classic rock and the satanic church theme in their music. Tobias Forge reveals himself as “The Man Behind The Mask of GHOST” in first public interview on August 17, 2017 on Swedish Radio Channel P1. Ghost formed out of the ashes of Magna Carta Cartel (included future Ghost members Tobias Forge, Martin Persner, and Simon Söderberg).
