Ghost at Roseland, April 2012 (more by Rebecca Reed)
Ghost

Citing legal reasons, painted Swedish metal crew Ghost have changed their name to Ghost B.C., which will be reflected on their forthcoming LP, Infestissumam, due on April 9. Could the name change be related to the Michio Kurihara project?

Meanwhile, Michio Kurihara, the guitarist of Japan's Ghost, will perform as a member of Boris during their upcoming "residency tour"; while Ghost B.C. will hit the road with Ides of Gemini. Fan presale for the Ghost B.C. tour begins Wednesday(2/6) at 12PM (password is "Infestissumam").

I don't think tix are going on sale today (looks like tomorrow based on the ticking clock)

There's also a message that says a password will be emailed this evening.

Opus Eponymous is a great album. These guys are just having fun and making great music as well. Anyone who thinks Ghost B.C. take themselves seriously is an idiot. Looking forward to the new album.

They're basically a darker lyric version of Blue Oyster Cult for people who don't know Blue Oyster Cult. They're definitely not metal but they are awesome. Awesome live show too.

sausage comments are getting old people

"They're basically a darker lyric version of Blue Oyster Cult for people who don't know Blue Oyster Cult"

HAHAHAHA!!!!! That is such an outlandish statement! BOC was a great band that wrote some killer jams. Please don't even think that these fools are anywhere close to being on the same level as BOC.

Godzilla and (Don't Fear) The Reaper are better than anything that Ghost could dream of pulling off on their best day.

@1:15 Please shut your dick sucker, you faggot sausage.

Ghost G.H. sucks. It's fucking garbage music for the modern garbage listener. Sorry.

translation: If you have no musical knowledge, listen to this band.

When the members of Blue Oyster Cult die, they're going to spin in their graves over that ridiculous comment.

Ghost BC are basically a lighter Elliott Smith for those who aren't familiar with music.

Blue Oyster Cult was really just Oi Polloi without the blue and without the cult and without the ster but with a polloi.

I'm convinced this is just a Weird Al side project. I'd recognize that nasally voice anywhere!

this band was so much better when they were Ghost.

should have changed their name to shit ghost.

BOC ref way off base. Ghost is more like Death by Anal Cancer, Paul McCartney and Thom Yorke all rolled into a fetid turd.

Posted by Anonymous | February 5, 2013 8:55 PM

@1:10 Agreed.

I dont see the BOC lyrical comparison but definitely a musical comparison.

A Satanic message with tunes your Mom could hum along to. I see no reason to disparage this Swedish outfit...just by being Swedish they are superior to all of us already. Accept these facts!

Ghost should call it a day.The novelty wore off already
