In the year of 13, the second phase of GHOST B.C. begins with the release of the second psalm INFESTISSUMAM on April 8, 2013 on Loma Vista Recordings. Papa Emeritus II succeeded Papa Emeritus at the conclusion of phase one in the year of 12, and the Nameless Ghouls joined him under the unholy church’s current moniker Ghost B.C. – (Modified from Ghost for legal reasons). Make no mistake though. The rituals still demand the same reverence and praise, fortified through a delivery of sweetly satanic melodies, snaking distorted riffs, and vaudevillian keyboards.
Papa Emeritus II recently emerged on the 100th issue of Decibel Magazine for an extensive feature detailing the making of the forthcoming INFESTISSUMAM in which a nameless ghoul declared, “Regardless of your religious beliefs, we like to trigger the imagination of the listener so they can become a devout burner in Hell or a keen participant of devil worship for at least an hour or two. That’s the Ghost experience.” Said Decibel Editor in Chief Albert Mudrian, “For the cover of our 100th issue, we wanted to spotlight a band that embodies the ideals of the magazine: theatricality, black humor, love for both the past and present of extreme music. Ghost meets and exceeds all of those criteria, and we couldn’t be more excited to reveal the exclusive story of the making of their second album.
