In 2006, based on the Ghost's difficult to say, whether it is bird or fish. The band appear disguised and flirting openly with one hundred nismilla, but obviously not completely serious.
Secondly, the Ghost is considered metal, as a band, but its music will find plenty of digestible choruses and any sugary pop elements. No wonder, then, that the band did in 2013, a cover version of the Abba I m A Marionette song.
the Third, the Ghost is actually not a band in the truest sense, but a musician Tobias Forge solo project, where the change of background musicians called the Nameless Ghouls i.e. Anonymous Demons.

in finland, the Ghost has grown in popularity year by year. The band has performed, inter alia, the Tuska festival as well as Metallica and Iron Maiden opened up for, as well as been a sting gig in the smaller venue in.
Now is already the largest parallel to emma's concert venue shift. We meet Tobias Forge for some hours before the show in Hartwall Arena. Forge is a Swedish style polite, easy, and a good sense of humor interviewee. The essence is athletic and slender: it seems that forge of make-up artist to matt their own civilian self has very little in common on the stage of a rampage of demonic characters with.
– for Me it is more comfortable to change into something that looks like a rock star, and behaves like a rock star in a way that your own self is not able to. On the other hand, the band's image is established such and I don't want it questioned.
– Practical reasons, I would like to maybe in the future to change a few of the disguise of related things and make them easier. It does not mean, however, that I would go on stage like this. When I look at myself in the mirror, I don't see there Ghost-band, the Forge said.
Forge piloted the Ghost aluperin satanic pope, or Papa Emerituksena, but in recent years the characters changed, smoothly move the subject Cardinal Copia, which does not remain in your short-lived alter ego.
– our Audience has taken the Cardinal copia's well received and I like him. Copia is so far Ghost-the saga of the most colorful characters – though his mask might still be a little bit cooler.
Ghost and Forge identity was long a mystery, but they were revealed a couple of years ago a lawsuit context.Tobias Forge and Cardinal Copia -like figure. Universal dark side attractive to call
Ghost lyrics is worshipped Lucifer, respond to satan's attractive invitation, whisper is the anti christ and we are anyway the dark side and the occult dense and dark were talking about the fabric in the middle of, at times, even Latin language. Il Padre, Il Filio Et Lo Spiritus Malum, as Infestissumam -song rugged choir of the atonement of spells.
Tobias Forge by Satan is understood the pop-culture and the Ghost lyrics – a slightly different way than, for example, in the Bible.
– the abrahamic religions are based on control. Satan again represents the pop culture in quite the opposite things. The idea that the devil represents evil, not really inspire me. I remember history very little bad things, which has made the devil in the name. If you think about the things that have caused humanity much pain and despair, they most often do in the name of kindness. In addition to the time many people meet a God-fearing christians – of course not all – has been pretty horrible people.
the Devil's means to me rock'n'roll, film, freedom, and humor. The devil has been a faithful companion most of my life as well as a guide, a mentor that symbol.
Ghost visual look base also strongly of the catholic church imagery. The band's stage props imitating a medieval cathedral with high pillars and stained glass, which is of course carried out in a more or less rienaavalla way.
the Catholic church's aesthetics the task has been impressive and looks scary to a small person's perspective. No wonder that sometimes, in ancient times people might have thought that the cathedrals were of God or some supernatural power built by.
– Our concept is a bit similar. We have built a church, people came to the scene, participating in the ritual and they have a solemn feel. The only difference here is that many religions have gotten people to feel anxious, I hope again, that we yleisöllämme is a good feeling.Ghost occur in the united states in may of this year.

a Musical Ghost is watching always backward. The band's sound in the echo of the 60s and 70s occult rock and Black Sabbath-like bands.
I've always had a certain kind of archaeological approach to music writing, but I try to mix things with each other so that they sound new, interesting and tasty.
– Ghost in the music might be the confluence of what for example, Alice Cooper and King Diamond have done, but it's not the same scene. I like the fact that we walk as if in their own ympyrässämme.
currently the fifth album to prepare the Ghost is one of Sweden's hottest export products, which, though their image for not going all over the world. The last time the band experienced a negative attitude a little conservative emma locations in the united states.
If we went to call, for example, the Middle east and certain Asian countries, that could be a problem. Therefore, we do not do so. We don't want to waste people's time on the show we booked into somewhere where we don't, after all, can't call. Especially black metal in which the visual world we come from, often happens like this.
Tobias forge, according to the Ghost, however, is not provocation or confrontation to search for.
We want basically to entertain the people who such things receive pleasure. I don't go around performing to make anyone angry.Tobias Forge Hartwall arena in 28.11. Jussi Mankkinen / Yle status of yle's newsletters!
