Ghost

Look out for men dressed in evil pope/executioner outfits in the East Village area, as the avalanche of post-MDF shows continues with Sweden's Ghost! The band will play a rare show at The Studio At Webster Hall on June 1st, days after their MDF appearance, in support of their new album Opus Eponymous (out now via Metalblade). Tickets for the NYC show are on sale. No word on whether the band will add more North American dates, or who if anyone will open the NYC show.

Ghost joins names like Hooded Menace, Tragedy/Citizens Arrest, Doom, Cripple Bastards, Noisear/The Kill, Innumerable Forms/Hatred Surge/Miasmal/Mammoth Grinder, and many others who have all added shows surrounding their MDF appearance.

Speaking of MDF, we recently interviewed MDF: The Movie director David Hall. Check that out.

I heard Lustmord was going to open...only this time he will bring that much needed Hewlett Packard printer in an attempt to intereact with the audience.

Anyone heard whether the printer will be on hand for Ghost's performance?

Thanks in advance for any updates!!!

Rumors are that lustmords printer is out of ink jet cartridges, so he won't be bringing it.

Ghost (Japan) should sonically slay these fools with a total guitar assault!!

Thought this was about the Japanese Ghost and got excited. They should play NYC.

i feel sorry for the people who actually showed up for this

This Ghost is awful. I don't understand the appeal, and I'm as metal as you can get, for someone who posts on BV.

Mercyful Fate much?

Mercyful Fate MUCH MUCH MUCH!

However, King Diamond has put his whole career on hold while recovering from his heart attack so we should all be happy and take what we can get.

Decent Satanic hard rock, corpse paint, papal robes? Sold.

It's like OOOO give me the schtick of Portal but with good songs. Done.

Same. I wasn't even aware there was another band named Ghost. Oh well.

yeah, excited about Japanese Ghost. no interest in these clowns.

Not are they dumb enough to take on a clearly taken band moniker, but their whole style of dress and look seems to be totally ripped off of the band Portal. And their music is terrible.

Hey geniuses. There are more than two bands named Ghost... including two from Japan. So seriously STFU before you start acting as if one came before the last.

PORTAL DONE RIGHT!

wait a second - is someone implying that this band came before the Ghost that most everyone agrees is the 'good' Ghost band?

This Ghost is not only the newest, but the BEST!!!

This Ghost is the iPad 2 of Metal with 9x the graphics processing power of Lustmord.

This Ghost is 2011's Dan Deacon.

Where is that guys church at? I'd like to go and pray. better yet- make actions figures of him and SUNN(o) and have them do battle.

Sunn O))))) figures are a record store day exclusive.

There are only 10 of them in existence and the price is having your virginity reinstated.
