Over the past few months, I’ve become absolutely obsessed with Ghost — a heavy metal band from Sweden, comprised of Papa Emeritus III and the five Nameless Ghouls. The first time I came across the band was when I was watching random videos on television and their single Secular Haze came on. I was memorized; their attire was fascinating while the music was hypnotic and unlike any metal I’ve ever heard before. That’s why it was a pleasure speaking with a Nameless Ghoul during Ghost’s latest trip to Toronto, as they were touring in support of their third album Meliora. Watch our exclusive interview as we discuss Papa Emeritus III, costume changes, big egos, meaningful releases, string arrangements, and learning from tour fuck-ups.
