GHOST - An Enchanting Night In Toronto
October 2, 2015, 3 years ago
From the dark red lighting, the smoky haze and the devilish choir singing over the sound system, worshipers of the doom metal band Ghost knew they were entering Hell itself. Papa Emeritus III and his troop of Nameless Ghouls began their unholy service with "Spirit", from their newest album Meloria. The congregation of devilish disciples responded to every flick and wave of Papa's hand, chanting and signing at the will of their maestro.
The Swedish metal clergy continued their evening of worship with tracks from Opus Eponymous, Infestissumam, If You Have Ghost, and Meloria. The group tore into hits like "Ritual", "Body and Blood", "Cirice", and "Ghuleh/Zombie Queen". After a quick wardrobe change, Papa commanded the audience into "Year Zero", and his adorers responded with chants of "Hail Satan, Welcome Year Zero!" Papa and his Nameless Ghouls ended their service with "Monstrance Clock", having the crowd come together once more. Their dark but electrifying performance is one that will not be easily forgotten by anyone in attendance.
