If it IS the same band, though, I like 'em, too.
Nope, this band is from Sweden. No one knows their identities, rumors are they dudes from other well known metal bands...but which just adds to their mystery/gimmick.
Ghost almost exclusively sounds like Mercyful Fate/King Diamond. Musicwise at least.
And since you mentioned Yob, pay attention to the other band playing Dark Castle they are ****ing awesome! i definitely recommend their two albums, crushing doom metal fronted by a chick.
BTW tickets for Ghost/Enslaved/Alcest (Great blackened shoegaze) at the troubadour go on sale tomorrow!
Alcest is excellent!
Lol! On that Hitler video! Now I want to listen to that Morbid Angel video, um, out of Morbid Curiosity. ;)
And yep, Dark Castle is ****ing awesome, I haven't heard the new album yet, waiting to buy it on vinyl. The last one was crushing, going to be an excellent show, as well as the Ghost/Enslaved/Alcest at the Troub.
