Swedish heavy metal band GHOST B.C, (modified from Ghost in the U.S for legal reasons) are preparing to unleash their highly anticipated sophomore psalm INFESTISSUMAM on April 16, 2013 through Republic Records/Universal in Canada. INFESTISSUMAM is the follow-up record to the bands critically acclaimed and Grammis (Swedish version of The Grammy’s) award-winning debut album OPUS EPONYMOUS. The Canadian release will feature two bonus tracks “La Mantra Mori” and “I’m a Marionette”, that will be redeemable by download code with each album purchased.
With a great deal of buzz circulating about the band and their long awaited second album, many of heavy metal and hard rock’s elite have fallen under GHOST B.C’s spell. Check out the reactions to these Swedish metallers from members of PANTERA, COHEED AND CAMBRIA, KORN, AVENGED SEVENFOLD and many more HERE
GHOST B.C is made up of Papa Emeritus II (formerly Papa Emeritus) on vocals and a slew of nameless ghouls on bass, drums, keys and guitar. The band is most notably recognizable due to their eccentric on-stage presence where five of the group’s six members wear hooded robes, while the vocalist appears in a skull mask and a cardinal outfit.
Papa Emeritus II and the Group of Nameless Ghouls invite all to witness their rituals on stage. Rituals have taken place in front of sold out audiences across the world and at festivals such as Download, Orion Music + More, and Coachella. The congregation has grown to include such high-profile members as James Hetfield of Metallica, Philip Anselmo of Down and Pantera, and Fenriz of Darkthrone, who has the honor of being the first public supporter.
GHOST B.C. will be performing rituals across North America this spring in support of their new album. The tour kicks off at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on April 14th and includes 7 Canadian tour dates. Full Canadian tour details are below.
