The Onion is an entertainment website featuring satirical articles reporting on international, national, and local news. Well that’s pretty much what The Tyranny of Tradition is, except with Metal & weirdness. They wrote an article about Ghost’s next singer which is sure to give you a good laugh.
In an attempt to show the modern, more tolerant face of the Catholic Church, the Vatican today announced that Pope Francis would be the new vocalist for the death metal band Ghost B.C. Pope Francis, whose only previous credit on an album come from singing backup vocals on the Annihilator song “Kraf Dinner”, has publically spoken about the “healing and transformative powers of heavy metal music”, but few expected him to actually appear on a metal album.
3 days ago (May 8) we posted a quote from HardDriveRadio.com claiming they had information about Ghost’s upcoming album. Today Ghost posted a Facebook status that says “Children of the world! We are apparently releasing an album soon. Can anyone please give us the title and the release date? Thank you. /A Nameless Ghoul”. Obviously this is regarding rumors that HardDriveRadio.com posted on their website about the album name & release date. (more…)
According to HardDriveRadio.com, Swedish occult rockers GHOST have set “Meliora” (Latin for “better”) as the title of their third album, due on August 21. The follow-up to 2013’s “Infestissumam” was helmed by Klas Åhlund, a prolific songwriter, producer and guitarist who is also a member of the Swedish rock band TEDDYBEARS, and was mixed by Andy Wallace (SLAYER, NIRVANA, SEPULTURA, LINKIN PARK, GUNS N’ ROSES). Songtitles set to appear on the GHOST CD include “From The Pinnacle To The Pit”, “Majesty”, “Devil Church”, “He Is” and the expected first single, “Cirice”, which is tentatively due at the end of May or in early June.

It appears there’s some difficulty reading the English version on mobile devices so we just decided to copy & paste the entire interview below. Enjoy!
NOTE: This is only the attempt of an unofficial translation of A Nameless Ghoul’s words given to the Sweden Rock Magazine, published in april 2015. The translator did his very best, though claims not in the least any complete accuracy, neither literally nor figuratively. The purpose of this is solely and exclusively to delight the non-Swedish-speaking “Children of the world”

In the pictures in this article the readers are confronted partly by Papa Emeritus II in a pope costume, partly by a Papa Emeritus II in a civilian dress in a home environment who moreover wears different wigs. This is certainly confusing for many of them. Explain how things are.
– It’s not more complicated than the fact that there is a Gene Simmons that you can watch in the tv-series “Family jewels” and another Gene Simmons that you can watch on stage, says a guitar playing Nameless Ghoul. Therefore it is the same person in the pictures. One of them is Papa II in an official, public perspective and the other one should be less public, but there are many people that have noticed his “stupidities”. And that’s funny, of course. It’s mostly hard for people to understand things. That’s what we have discovered and that’s actually what we’re playing with. That’s what the experiment results in. (more…)
The Nameless Ghouls Facebook Page got a devoted child to translate this month's issue of Sweden Rock Magazine, featuring "Ghost", to English for non Swedish-speaking children. NOTE: THE TRANSLATOR DID…
We knew Papa Emeritus II of Ghost B.C. was on his way out since last May. Well, they finally found a suitable replacement, and the line-up change will go down…
The last time posted about Ghost was in December when we said Ghost is writing a new record and it’s going to have more guitars and less vocals. Nearly five months later and we’ve got some legitimate news! A lot of legitimate news, to be honest.
According to the Children of Ghost fan site, an upcoming interview with Sweden Rock Magazine a band representative reveals a little more information about the new record. The first single will be out before their appearance at the Sweden Rock Festival on June 3rd, and they hope to play one or two songs live at their festival dates this summer. (more…)
As threatened last year, Ghost are apparently planning to once again “switch” singers and introduce (excuse me — induct) Papa Emeritus III this summer. Emeritus III, of course, will replace…
