GHOST IF YOU HAVE GHOST FUNKO POP! ALBUMSGHOST IF YOU HAVE GHOST FUNKO POP! ALBUMS

Costumed Swedish band Ghost effortlessly combines pop and metal-driven hard rock while delivering sonic sermons that focus on occult, horror imagery, and Satanic themes. Fronted by songwriter, conceptualist, and lead singer Tobias Forge, the band was formed in Linkoping, Sweden, in 2006.

Tobias Forge wears different demonic Pope costumes and he wanted Ghost to be a theatrical and anonymous band. To bring his concept to life, he enlisted the help of other musicians and made them wear hooded robes. He refers to them as Nameless Ghouls. With his face painted to resemble a skull, Forge refers to himself as Papa Emeritus.

Forge posted three songs on MySpace in March 2010 and within a couple of days, he was contacted by several managers and record labels. The band also polished their sound, leavening it with pop-prog overtones and keyboards. Ghost also began playing several underground shows.

Ghost quickly became popular among metal fans in their home country, thanks to occult ritual-styled performances. Surprisingly, the band’s sinister appearance contrasted beautifully with their multi-textured and melodic sound. After touring internationally for two years, the band released the single Secular Haze.

Opus Eponymous, the band’s 2010 album, weds the hair metal of the ‘80s with ‘70s hard rock to create hook-laden songs. In 2013, Ghost released Infestissumam. The album fused alt-metal and pop with a keyboard-centric approach. Meliora, their 2015 offering, combines edgy wave influences with vintage FM rock.

Prequelle, their 2018 Grammy-nominated work, doubled down on the hooks and revealed ABBA’s influence combined with the distinct sounds of King Diamond and Judas priest. Impera, the band’s international chart-topper and fifth album, was released in 2022.

Infestissumam, the band’s sophomore album, was recorded in Nashville and is characterized by keyboard-oriented sound with many prog and gothic elements. Forge’s writing also focused on using a backing choir as the primary focus of his sonic architecture. The album won both fan and critic acclaim and was certified gold.
